Wood Industry nowadays require productivity improvement to handle gap between customer demand for good quality product with reasonable prices, while factory owners always expect profit making and business continuity. Problem facing wood processing factory is incapability to implement Lean Manufacturing (LM) continuously for performance achievement. This research has objective to set up conceptual model of LM using Soft System Methodology (SSM). Field investigation of 8 (eight) factories in Java found that only 25 percent successfully execute LM Regularly. Using Purposively Activities Model (PAM) as results of constructing rich picture and root definition; this research conclude that key success factor of LM implementation is top and middle management commitment. Those are needed to support LM concept in technical training, LM culture witch is safety, quality and kaizen; as well as encourage employees participation with infrastructure production. Strategic efforts must be done through effective communication with multimedia. Furthermore, appropriate LM Model should be selected according to company condition.
