Description: The implementation of lean thinking is complex, slow, incremental, and unpredictable. The process varies from case to case (Liker, 1998). For this article, two basic questions are proposed: In what ways are the current practices of lean manufacturing eliminating waste with less human effort, and in what ways are they leading to an increase in production efficiency? A second question can be asked: By observing the Japanese example, how could this technique be transferred to other companies? These questions will be answered in this article with the objective of demonstrating that lean manufacturing is in fact a technique that improves
production performance.
