Abstract—The objectives of this research are to study operating conditions and management of Suan Dusit Rajabhat University’s Environmental Center according to the 11 aspects of lean management to develop manuals for 7S activity operation, risk management, job description and key preferment indicator (KPI) as well as to analyze economic cost of quality. The study used mixed research methods consisting of qualitative research with an emphasis on participatory action research (PAR) and quantitative research as a research method to create collaboration among administrators, staff and researchers conforming to the 11 aspects of lean management. The developed manuals help create effective organization and encourage the staff to have strong discipline as well as reduce or eliminate waste opportunity in the future operation.
