Abstract

The study approached the application of the Value Stream Mapping and Earned Value analysis methods in a Pinch Bottom with Simple Fold (PBSF) paper bag production line in an industrial packaging enterprise of multiwall paper bags located in Brazil. From the joint application of the mentioned methods, a better diagnosis of the situation was obtained, and the opportunities of eliminating wastes, of operation enhancement, and of a better monitoring of the involved costs appeared, bringing potential production gains and quality to the enterprise. As a contribution of this work, it can be highlighted the presentation and discussion about the complementarity of a Lean Manufacturing tool with a Project Management Methodology.
