The overproduction is one of the main problem which manufacturing companies confront with, because it generates additional costs that can be saved for other strategic decisions which may have a significant and a long-term impact on its overall activity. The organizations, who reduce the negative effects of the overproduction and still do everything possible to meet their client needs, represents a model for all organizations to follow. This paper presents a solution which provides important insights for managers in terms of reducing the overproduction as a case of study and at the same time it represents an important contribution to the literature in the field. This process involves a complex assessment of the production process and causes that generate the overproduction. The results obtained attest that the proposed solution can reduce the overproduction, enhancing the operational performance of the company.
