Paint manufacturing industries in common are facing yield loss and poor quality of the products that has led to low productivity, longer production lead time, rework and rejection. The focus is on the efficiency of the plant, and these factors will reduce the overall efficiency of the plant. The purpose of the study is to implement a lean tool that is Value Stream Mapping. The objective is to identify the waste and eliminate them in the plant. For collecting the information required to complete the project, the researcher will take a tour to the shop floor which will enable the researcher to be familiar with the activities that are taking place, and this will help in getting a vague idea about the process and the production flow. The result obtained was observed, and suitable suggestions were proposed to overcome the problems that the industry is facing
