Abstract(s)Currently, many companies are implementing Lean Production, therefore they must rethink the production system configuration. This study aim was to evaluate different production systems configurations for a Lean environment. This evaluation used the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Different production system configurations were characterized by a literature review. This review advises that Product Oriented Manufacturing System (POMS) is a better system for a Lean environment. Seventeen criteria were used to distinguish the different configurations. Criteria were weighted using a hypothetical case situation for a desirable Lean environment. AHP method sustains and reinforces the POMS as the best option in this type of environment.
