Lean tools provide additional value to the business and end users by reducing inefficient practices and improving the rate of product output. The purpose of this research is to provide lean area a clearer standardized process for easier implementation. This can be done by using Risk Priority Number (RPN) to quantify the risk of failure of lean tools for their implementation in service organizations.
