Lean Maturity Audit Template

This lean maturity assessment template is used to evaluate the progress made toward implementing lean in your facility. It helps you understand the strong areas as well as the areas that need to be improved. An action plan for improvement can then be developed and implemented. You may conduct lean maturity audits on a periodic basis or whenever it is needed.

This template uses a six-dimensional model that includes leadership, support systems, value stream, continuous improvement, lean techniques, and standard work. After you fill out the six sections with your audit findings, the results will be displayed on a radar chart in the Results worksheet. Other worksheets are provided to store all photos taken during the audit, register all potential good and best practices, and identify the corrective actions to be taken to improve the current situation.

This template is a Microsoft Excel document which can be used to suit your specific needs. For example, you may add, modify or delete any criteria in any section. You may also add new sections if needed such as 5S and visual management. It comes in two different variations; one that asks to rate the criteria and another that is more like a checklist (asks to answer yes or no).
