Lean production and agile manufacturing are well known production concepts. Modern literature is full of the articles about their comparison, merger, opposition, analysis, etc. Many authors agree that their synergy will lead to better results, rather than these concepts will be used separately at the company. That is why it is important to combine the lean and agile manufacturing for creation of the competitive production concept. Their synergy can be divided on two different types, such as an integrative and emergent. The purpose of this article is to introduce different effects from synergy, which can be not only positive, but negative as well. However the positive effects will be more considerable than negative synergy effects.
