Abstract(s)This paper presents a methodology to implement Lean Production (LP) in Portuguese Textile and Garment Industry (TGI). Lean Production is a well-known work organizational model being, nowadays, widely implemented in all sort of industries and services companies. LP responds to customers' demand for on-time delivery of high quality products at reduced costs, through continuous waste elimination (e.g., overproduction, raw materials, energy and water more than necessary, among others). In this methodology is included, besides the Lean tools and techniques, some ergonomics tools in order to assess the ergonomic work conditions and techniques to evaluate the company sustainability. It is expected that, with the involvement of these tools, will allow the implementation of a Lean Production that creates a positive work environment for workers giving special attention to sustainable development.
