Over the years, the motion study method has been proved to be a powerful tool for process standardization in the
textile industry, which enables determining the standard time for the performance of a specific task. Moreover, the
processing time plays a pivotal role in the management of the production processes when applying the time study
technique. Besides, the application of the assembly line balance constitutes a primary goal of manufacturing
companies for producing vast quantities in the shortest possible time with satisfactory and efficient results. This
research was conducted in a textile company that manufactures denim clothing for women, located in San Juan de
Lurigancho District in Lima, Peru. It aims to reduce unproductive time in the production line caused by a poor
productive process, excessive movements and long waiting times, by means of applying the method engineering and
line balance. In order to obtain the required information for this research, Arena Simulation Software has been used
for analyzing the cycle time, productivity and efficiency of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
