It provides consolidation of the quality literature by identifying 09 Critical Success Factors for analysis. Design/methodology/approach: The paper presents the case study approach of current green manufacturing strategies of cement companies and provides the Industrial Environmental Impact Data Collection, Design & Control of Manufacturing Systems and Integration-Product & Manufacturing system tit questionnaire with employees, top and middle managers in fourteen cement factories. Findings: It has been found that the fourteen factories under investigation have low productivity’ and production levels when compared with the design values.
There is no clear TXT strategy and it has been found that the lack of training and personal development is the main cause of this problem. In addition, employees are found not to be motivated because of the lack of a management strategy and reward structure. Research limitations/implications: Based on the findings, a new framework or GM has been developed. A broad range of survey and research was reviewed, and all revealed the methods to recognize the key influences for development of green technology.
The characteristics examined are firm size, the degree of capital intensity, the degree of diversification, the timing of TXT implementation, and the maturity of the program. We find that smaller firms do significantly better than larger firms do. 79 SIGNS 2348 9510 Practical implications – The current challenges have been identified and comparative analysis is developed into a model for the implementation of Green manufacturing. Originality/value: The paper highlights limitations in some of the cement factories in relation to GM and production strategies. The importance of adopting a realistic strategy and framework by managers is discussed.
The results for size and capital-intensity validate the importance of TXT practices for smaller firms and environments that are more frequent intensive. Investing to achieve a broader, deeper, and more mature TXT implementation (possibly by targeting an independent TXT award) should also result in higher benefits from TXT implementation. These measures can e used to assess the status of factor analysis, in order to imply further development.

Introduction The world consumption of cement is rising at an increasing rate creating significant levels of pollution and recently, there is a growing skepticism among consumers about the validity of “green” product claims (R H Williams, et al. 1987). The issue with environmental destruction has been one of the main problems both social and political in recent times and concerns about he sustainability and the protection of the natural environment have become increasingly significant issues amongst regulators, environmentalists and society in many countries Ole Ramify ex-Salads, et al. 987) (M. Z. Augusta, et al. 2009). Sustainability is a significant issue, which has been discussed in recent years, and a large number Of sustainability reports, exhibiting the increased significance of sustainability issues and environmental management programs were organized to ensure the implementation of the environment friendly concept by employees (Abraham Dinner, et al. 004) (Juan Acacia, et al. 2011). So, companies can earn a green passport for a greater market and the use of such environmental management practices presents new needs of information for public organizations and they need information about their environmental impacts and the results of the initiatives that are developed (Egoist Testes, et al. 2006) (R. Reran, et al. 2005).
The environmental management becomes our every Daly]s care and increasingly numerous people care for the environment we live in and implementing an MESS can aids corporations improve their performance and also the purpose of the ISO 14001 standard is to guide environmental improvements relied through a systematic approach to environmental management and ISO 14001 is a systemic requirement directed to changing business processes and procedures (Paul S Phillips, et al. 2001 ) (Paul B. Streaky, et al. 2009).
This research defines the concept of environmental management systems for the cement industry and in this study; we have used TOPICS method to recognize the most 80 effective criteria of ISO 14001 -based environmental management system (MESS) and ranking cement industries in Iran. This paper is organized as follows: Section 2 discusses the basics of sustainability, ISO 14001 and its unifies and MESS systems in cement industries, Section 3 discusses the important success factors of ISO 14001 implementation, Section 4 discusses the methodology, Section 6 discuss the study and Section 7 concludes the study.
Challenges For TXT Implementation In Indian Manufacturing Industry: As the organizations across the globe have faced stiff cutthroat competition in the last three decades, the Indian industry too could not escape the brunt of globalization. Indian manufacturing industry has also witnessed irrepressible competition in the recent times, predominantly due to the entry of alteration companies in the wake of liberalizing, since early 199005.
Owing to opening up of the Indian economy from merely a regulated economy, the manufacturing industry has been faced with uphill task of competing with the best in the world (P. Van den Heeded et al. , 2012). The intense competition has been witnessed in terms of low costs, IR quality and products with high performance, competition. More( lead times, shorter innovation times and reduced inventories ha increasing demands on the organization C]s preparedness, adapt versatility (Rene van Berkeley, et al. 2007).
Traditionally, Indian mar organizations have suffered from inherent deficiencies like poor responsiveness to changing market scenarios, low productivity, poor cost effectiveness of production systems, stubborn organize character and structures, uncertain policy regimes, low skill and base of employees, low production automation, non-motivating environments, high customer complaints, high utility rates, high associated with production systems, high labor rigidity, high into and infrastructural glitches (P.
Dodson et al. , 2007). The Indian in faced with the challenge of adopting cost effective manufacturing for staying competitive. While implementing effective TEMP prior Indian Manufacturing organizations have often been plagued WI problems and challenges like difficulties to understand business reluctance to changing practices, vague workerњs apprehension: realize the same level of benefits as reaped by developed country imitating the T PM implementation procedures and practices ads (Irene J.

Thus Indian manufacturing organize to shed the sluggish character and move forward aggressively etc adapt proactive processes and practices for overcoming the info deficiencies in manufacturing systems for harnessing distinct CIO comparison to their global competitors (Intimate Adhered et al. , resent study critically examines the factors influencing the imply of TEMP practices 81 International Journal Of Core Engineering & Management (SINCE in Indian manufacturing industry.
