VSM (Value Stream Mapping) was used to identify the improvement in the production process. The root causes of the problem were then determined using the Ishikawa diagram. The activities to be carried out are: identification of times of each process of the evaluated product, carry out the implementation of the master production plan, application of Kanban and application of Heijunka for load balancing . The results of this implementation will be visualized through a simulation making use of efficiency, effectiveness and productivity indicators to meet the objective.
