The primary purpose of this study is to empirically assess the convergent and disriminant validity of lean production constructs.Grounded by the Socio-technical System Theory (STS), this study formulates and examines a conceptual model of lean production practices.The study segregates lean production practices into two main dimensions, namely socially-oriented lean production and technically-oriented lean production.This study utilizes two hundred and five manufacturing companies, selected randomly from the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers Directory.The study measures senior production or lean managers’ view of the lean production practices at their companies.Convergent validity and discriminant validity of the lean practices are assessed.
