The radical changes that have been felt in the Global Market emphasized the need to upgrade the existing management systems. It was within this scope that a study has started in a Portuguese ship repair company, with the objective of applying lean philosophy in the production and maintenance management. This article presents not only the proposed model to implement the philosophy of continuous improvement in the current maintenance management systems, but also which tools are more appropriate in this market sector. The model presumes a global approach to the activities problems, in order to identify the most critical ones, bearing in mind the seven key principles to apply the Lean. The first conclusions of its application are presented, as well as the role the personnel need to have for the success of the project.
