As the market evolves and competition increases, more and more enterprises make efforts to learn and apply lean manufacturing and its tools. Beside other uses, companies can employ lean tools to eliminate constraints from their production systems as there are no other comprehensive ways to do that. The present research demonstrates how exactly lean methods can be used to manipulate and remove system constraints. For this purpose we carried out an observation and time-study of the process, did interviews with its participants and made a value stream map. Then the measures were suggested on how to eliminate bottlenecks by means of SMED projects, Standard Work, Visualization and TPM development. As a result the designed action plan allows the company to solve its problem with insufficient production capacity.
