The purpose of this study is to explore how the implementation of manufacturing technology could facilitate successful lean implementation in achieving superior operational performance.The paper is based on a survey research done on lean manufacturers in Malaysia and their adoption of manufacturing technology to couple the implemented lean system. The challenges faced by lean manufacturing firms in many developing countries includes adopting the right technology, using it efficiently and continuously reviewing production technology in order to gain maximum output.Many organizations believe that implementation of lean manufacturing involved large amount of capital, capacity, infrastructures and technology investment to support the system, which might proof to be a financial burden to these manufacturers.This perception is not help by the scarcity of related research on manufacturing technology impact and adoption among lean manufacturers in Malaysia and globally.Model from this empirical study is expected to contribute towards the enhancement of theory on technology adoption and its effect on performance.At theoretical level, the study results showed the impact of manufacturing technology on the manufacturing performance of lean implementers.
