Abstract

Innovation, Flexibility and Rapid change-are the keywords for 21st century business environment.Industries that have traditionally delivered manufactured goods must streamline their processes and focus on the rapidly changing needs of their customers and the capabilities of their suppliers.Lean is one of the promising alternative strategy for achieving continuous improvement in business performance through identifying a company’s value stream and then systematically removing all waste.Educational Institutions are now focusing on knowledge management, and knowledge is a new paradigm for the way of work.The key issue in knowledge management in educational institution is faculty-subject allocation problem which can be solved by using the lean concept.This paper mainly concentrates on minimizing the knowledge wastage in technical institution by properly allocating the faculty to subjects. The faculty-subject allocation problem is solved using a meta-heuristic approach and a decision support system can be developed.
