Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to explore opportunities to integrate manufacturing practices with its processes using the LSS methodology to reduce waste and variability, improve efficiency and enhance quality and thus to improve process performance. Data were collected through interviews conducted by researchers during site visits. These data were processed using a set of quantitative measures by a computer program designed with Microsoft (Excel 2010) as well as the statistical program (SPSS v.17). Finally, develop and control was employed to ensure continuity and improvements. The rates of utilization of the product design capacity were low, with low levels of efficiency and productivity. It was also concluded that the application of the LSS methodology would reduce delivery time.There was notable difficulty of obtaining information, especially concerning the defective production of the final product.
