The problem experienced by the manufacturing company that produces soap bars is the waste in its production process. The research objective is to reduce waste in the production process flow in terms of distance of displacement of the material nor heap of material of the production process of laundry soap bars so it can increase the productivity. To solve the problem, implementation integration of lean manufacturing and BLOCPLAN algorithm is used. In the early stages, value-added activities and activities that are not value-added is identified through the depiction of value stream mapping, and value-added activities that are not reducible to the application of the principle of 5W and 1H. To get the total minimal distance to move materials, it is necessary to re-layout production facilities with BLOCPAN algorithm. Future state mapping is used to get an idea of the final result, in which all non-value added activities can be reduced, and the shorter lead time obtained in the production process. With the application of those two methods, process cycle efficiency is increased 33.62% resulting in increased productivity of the company amounted to 204 packs of soap bars each day.
