The paper presents the tools for improving efficiency, from its historical beginnings to modern business intelligence systems, furthermore includes good practices and case studies that illustrate both the potential and the benefits of lean methodology. We review the main characteristics of the lean methodology and the most basic components that can be applied by an organizational culture to improve processes. As the case studies show, these methodologies can contribute not only to optimising the operations of manufacturing firms, but also to improving different corporate cultures. The importance of the data analysis tools available through modern technology is also a key focus of the study, and these are increasingly being used in lean methodologies. These software tools are essential to help in collecting and analysing data generated by the application of efficiency improvement methods, as well as in plan-actual comparisons. The study emphasises the importance of continuous improvement of business processes, focusing on the synergies between modern technologies and proven efficiency improvement methodologies. The implementation of these methods is crucial for the operation and increasing the profitability of SMEs at the dawn of the 4th industrial revolution.
