The objectives of this study are to ascertain the factors that elevate the effectiveness of Lean Manufacturing (LM) application and examine the present-day versions of LM tools simulation. This investigation embarks on a re-evaluation of the existing procedures for the application of LM in the production sector. Three factors that determine the effectiveness of LM implementation in an organization were identified. Currently available LM tools simulations are perceived to be wanting in user-friendliness and saddled with inadequate communication between modeller and client regarding progression from the theoretical model to the process engineering stage. The outcomes derived from this study were arrived at through multi score that includes Elsevier, Springer, Google Scholar, Research Gate and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Enhancement of the recommended tools will pave the way for better decision-making among LM professionals in the manufacturing domain.
