    El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el estado actual de la investigación en torno a Lean Production, partiendo de una exhaustiva recopilación y agrupación de la literatura al respecto. Esta metodología ha permitido identificar cuatro líneas de investigación: a) bases teóricas del Lean Production; b) papel de los recursos humanos en este modelo; c) impacto de Lean Production en la cadena de valor y d) resultados generados por este modelo. Esta evaluación también nos ha permitido señalar los aspectos en los que debería profundizarse, así como las líneas de investigación que deberán emprenderse en el futuro. / This paper aims to evaluate the current state of research in Lean Production by exhaustively compiling and grouping the literature on the subject. This methodology has led us to identify four lines of research being as follows: a) the theoretical bases of Lean Production; b) the human perspective in Lean Production; c) the impact of Lean Production on the value chain, and d) the results of Lean Production. This evaluation has also allowed a number of specific aspects to be identified and new research lines that would contribute to more transparent knowledge of the model in the future.
