The expert viewpoints are be used to describe the industry trend of implementing LSS in the future. Implementation of LSS by the BJC's glass packaging division has achieved huge returns in the first year, but due to the lack of sustainability, the long-term impact of the project on the company is not sustained.

Due to the coming era of big data, how to obtain value from big data is a major challenge to LSS. At the same time, the unique advantages of LSS in informatization and intelligence will make LSS have more and more application space in the future. The results of this research will have implications for BJC considering further improvements in profitability through the implementation of LSS. The findings will provide guidance for BJC to implement LSS more effectively in the future. And this research will provide future development direction for BJC’s glass packaging division.
