      Small and medium toilet manufacturing businesses in Peru face significant problems such as low productivity because of a high rate of production losses. To address this issue, the present study proposes the application of a lean manufacturing technique, such as the Poka-Yoke model, which improves the production flow within the company by implementing a transportation cart with a safety system to help reduce material falls during the manufacturing process. The results showed a 24% increase in productivity and reduction in problems of damaged products that did not meet quality standards, thus preventing their subsequent reprocessing.
