DOI: 10.33917/mic-2.115.2024.51-61

The problem of modernization of production systems in Russia is currently manifested in an acutely pronounced form. Their basis in most companies is the concept of mass production, which does not fully meet modern requirements, and therefore does not bring the expected effect. The introduction of new systems requires extraordinary efforts on the part of both management and staff. One of the most effective methods implemented in the practice of business entities today is lean manufacturing. Let’s consider its tools and methods as a means of increasing the efficiency of the enterprise.
