Abstract

Any company or industry that wants to go ahead as a competitive company should know, analyze, and project its processes toward a reality of conceptual innovation and technical applications that allow it to delve into a sustained control in the use of its resources. To improve the productivity required to increase profits from production processes, the Japanese Philosophy of Lean Manufacturing is proposed as a strategy to reduce anything that does not add value to processes, i.e., Productive Waste. This article proposes a literary review demonstrating the effectiveness of Lean Manufacturing in different industrial approaches, with different themes, always framed in the Continuous Improvement of the productive industrial environment.
