In the current trends of manufacturing industries, the Lean manufacturing is one of the most powerful manufacturing control systems. By using the lean manufacturing, the production time and cost can be reduced. In this Globalization world, the pump manufacturing companies need the techniques to reduce the waste in time and cost. So the lean manufacturing practices have been in this work. In this paper, the 5s process (Seiri, Seiton, Seiketsu, Seiso & Shitsuke), Muda and Kaizen were applied. The 5s process means sort, straighten, shine, standardise & sustain. Also the unnecessary movement of parts within the process have been reduced by the rearrangement of process layout in the machining line. By using Value Stream Mapping, the non-value added time was reduced and value added time was increased. The productivity of the machine shop has been increased
