Today’s globalized world presents major challenges to maintain the competitiveness of the companies, the manufacturing industry is not the exception. Over times companies debated what will be their best strategy to increase the market share and at the same time to maximize profits on which this cemented their efficiencies, whether administrative or operational. The most powerful tool within the Industrial Engineering methodology to improve processes, reducing waste generation “MUDA”, efficiency and increase in quantity of products output manufactured, maintaining the stability of associated costs and the quality of it, is known as Lean Manufacturing. This concept identifies among others the sources of waste, such as for example the loss of time, unnecessary movements, and everything that does not add value to the process, customer needs or the finish product and eliminate or minimize them to achieve the desired level of efficiency. This article will discuss the subject of operational improvements in the industry of cereal manufacturing for human consumption. This research and intervention to be an improvement project through maximizing the use of the existing resources increasing the product output, have selected a system known as DMAIC methodology. Key Terms - DMAIC, Efficiency, Improvement, Lean Manufacturing, Maximize, Methodology, SIPOC, SOP.
