Abstract. Lean manufacturing is one of the modern management methods to streamline production, reduce waste and increase business efficiency, thereby helping organizations and businesses improve productivity and quality. Most businesses have encountered difficulties when converting to LEAN and have not achieved the expected and sustained results in the long term. The aim of his study is to evaluate the factors of business characteristics affecting the results of Lean model application in industrial production in Vietnam. This study conducts an in-depth study of 10 typical industrial manufacturing enterprises. The research results show a model of six business characteristics that affect the success of Lean in production conditions in industrial enterprises. Based on the results, this study provides some suggestions for the firms to successfully apply lean
