The manufacturing sector is one of the most influential sectors in a country's economy, as it determines its current status and growth. Within this, the food and beverage industry is one of the biggest ones, representing a large part of the sector in Peru. Hence, the purpose of this research will be to improve the efficiency of one company in the food and beverage industry. Through the tools of Systematic Layout Planning and 5S, belonging to the Lean Manufacturing methodology, measures were proposed in order to achieve the objective. The first consists of generating proposals for plant distribution that allow optimizing times and reducing distances. Through the ARENA software, this tool could be simulated, obtaining promising results. As for the 5S, this will allow to keep the work areas clean and organized, managing to improve the flow of materials and the work environment. This research succeeded to increase the efficiency of the company's plant, demonstrating the effectiveness of these tools. In this way, this paper will serve for future research on Lean Manufacturing tools applied in the food and beverage industry.
