VIVAR, Rodobaldo Martínez; RODRIGUEZ, Alexander Sánchez; VIDAL, Gelmar García  and  CAMPDESUNER, Reyner Pérez. Management of productive reserves in a SME of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.1, pp.59-74. ISSN 1390-6542.

The development of a methodology for the organization of work in the SME, which enables the identification of existing productive reserves and thus a consequent improvement of the indicators of labor productivity is the goal of the present investigation. To achieve this objective a process adapted to the conditions of the object of practical study, which from a holistic approach allowed the realization of analysis for the proposed organization of work. The main results can be highlighted the following: the existence of a waste of working time 15% primarily determined by wasting time in the day, likewise it allowed identifying the limiting capacity of the production process of the natural medicine Prostageron, as well as problems associated with noise, vibration, lighting and ventilation were identified, although there are no major problems that could harm the health of workers. Finally he was able to increase labor productivity in 35.42% compared with the analysis developed linked to the detected limited capacity, while in this first analysis for field observation can indicate the possibility of a production increase of 327%.
