This study describes an improvement implementation in the manufacturing process of a laminating machine using lean manufacturing tools. After identifying the activities that do not add value to the process, the Ishikawa diagram and Pareto diagram were applied to determine the potential causes of it. Finally, the visual board, the 5 S, and the poka-yoke were successfully implemented, achieving a 25-day reduction in the manufacturing process time, which represents an efficiency of 36.57%.
