Abstract The main goal of this publication is the attempt to answer the question: what is the leading type of raw material used in the manufacturing process of spare parts for agricultural machinery of the type selected. Such action in the conviction of authors will determine which of these areas the savings should be searched for, especially in the context of a lean - implying flexibility of the organization - management. In the context of the implementation of the predetermined basic goal, according to the authors, it is necessary to carry out a series of indirect actions, among which the following were distinguished: Analysis of the literature on management of lean organization, which implicitly allows to verify the accuracy and soundness of the research presented in the publication, Determining what type of raw material is the most commonly used in the production of a tested part of the, which will allow for the development of lean cost strategies within it. In the research the conceptual model thesis was adopted, namely: Type of raw materials used in the manufacture of selected spare parts implies a strategy for the cost leaning within it. This article is part of a preliminary study in the analysis and selection of raw materials in the context of lean management.
QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF RAW MATERIAL USED IN MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF PARTS AND SUB-ASSEMBLIES OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY IN THE ASPECT OF LEANING THE ORGANIZATION
