Question: An Empirical Research on Lean Production Awareness: The Sample of Gaziantep

Answer: The goal of lean production is to save costs, produce products in various quantities, and cancel out all kinds of wastes. The lean production system, developed as an alternative to the western style production system, also takes place in the literature as an alternative application of traditional production systems. In this context, the main purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility and awareness of the lean production concept, which is widely accepted and applied in various sectors especially in developed countries, in Turkey. Within the framework of this purpose, the barriers that businesses face in lean production awareness and lean production practices have been measured on the sample of textile companies operating in Gaziantep province. Within the scope of the study, questionnaires were sent to 150 textile companies and 52 responses were received. As a result of the analysis, it was found out that most of the enterprises are not fully informed about lean production and their awareness of this production approach is at a medium level. Besides, it was determined that lean production practices differ according to the scale and capital structures of enterprises and market structures in which they operate.
