Lean Manufacturing And Mapping The Value Chain In A Lean Environment
The work is the result of research on lean manufacturing and a case study of the application of its main tool that
helps the visualization and analysis of lean production flow. The main objective is to demonstrate the application of a
mapping technique, trying to represent the current state and the projection (target) of a future state entered into a Just-in-time
environment. This tool is called value stream mapping, and is to obtain information such as cycle times, tool change time,
among others. From this information, one can design the "current state map" and from its analysis becomes possible to
propose improvements and design the "future state map". Gains were many significant as the inventory reduction of 61.47%
in process and increased productivity 47.01%, among other gains.
