The implementation of lean manufacturing concepts has had a significant impact on various industries. Many companies around the world have attempted to implement lean manufacturing, but the lack of an obvious understanding of lean measurement and its performance has caused its implementation to fail. This paper presents an innovative approach by using fuzzy TOPSIS to measure the production leanness of manufacturing systems, as a paradigm. This approach is applied to the Parizan Sanat company.

Die implementering van maer-vervaardigingkonsepte het 'n wesenlike impak op verskeie industrieë gehad. Baie maatskappye wêreldwyd het gepoog om maer-vervaardiging te implementeer, maar die 'n gebrek aan verstaan van die maer-meeting en die gepaardgaande uitvoering daarvan het die gevolg gehad dat die implementering van maer-vervaardiging misluk het. Hierdie artikel bied 'n innoverende benadering tot die meet van produksie maerheid deur van wasige TOPSIS gebruik te maak. Hierdie benadering word toegepas op die Parizan Sanat maatskappy.
