The great competition that currently exists between companies means that they are increasingly looking to offer customers a competitive price and the best way to reduce prices is by eliminating existing waste, when it comes to a production process. The Lean Manufacturing philosophy treats everything that doesn’t add value to the product as waste and must be eliminated in order to have a lean process. This work uses Value Stream Mapping (VSM), which is a tool that helps to analyse and visualise the critical points in the process. The study was applied to a company in Manaus that manufactures digital cameras and sought to identify problems, eliminate waste, reduce costs and thereby increase the added value of the process.
