Earlier empirical studies on joint implementation of different combinations of Total Quality Management (TQM), Just-in-Time (JIT), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and Supply Chain Management (SCM) concluded that the high performing manufacturing plants have implemented practices from more than one manufacturing program. All these programs are complementary in nature. However, there is no study that provides empirical examination of TQM, JIT, TPM and SCM within single framework and broader perspective is missing. In this paper ‘Integrated Manufacturing Practices’ framework is presented based on synergistic relationship among TQM, JIT, TPM and SCM. The data of 155 manufacturing plants in India is analyzed using Discriminant Analysis (DA). The result of the analysis shows that the practices from each of the paradigm has significant loading on each of the performance measure. The findings demonstrate the importance of implementing the TQM, JIT, TPM and SCM synergistically to enhance overall performance of the manufacturing plants.
