Nowadays, manufacturing companies are involved in a big competition, each of them looking to increase productivity and profit by implementing best practices within the company. The present paper presents an analysis of best practices of manufacturing companies which contributes to increasing and improving the productivity, and also have been identified new trends regarding best practices implemented in manufacturing companies. In order to accomplish this research, has been analyzed a successful manufacturing company in the field of manufacturing and automation from Romania. To collect data for this study there were accessed two databases, different specialized websites in the field, but the most important source of information was obtained from the analyzed company. One of the best practices identified in this study was to improve the productivity through re-engineering, practice that the company studied has implemented. In order to highlight this good practice, namely reengineering, were analyzed in parallel both of existing manufacturing types from the analyzed company, respectively production on CNC processing centers and classical production. The exemplification of both types of productions was done by using a Lean Manufacturing method, namely Value Stream Mapping, identifying the operational flow of both types of production.
