This paper presents the technological process for manufacturing a low-cut footwear product (type shoe) for women, for casual use, in an IL system. The paper begins with a general presentation of the technological process of manufacturing the product, and follows with a case study which details the characteristic operations, as well as the common ones, which take place during the process. Depending on the structure of the model and the characteristics of the raw and auxiliary materials, the technological process used in the manufacture workshops will be laid-out. Product manufacture begins with cutting the materials, in our case the parts being cut from full grain leather, and the lining from lining leather. After the pieces for the upper part of the shoe are cut according to the guides, they will be assembled using different methods such as: stitching, gluing or fastening. The guides are processed in order to thin out the edges evenly or in a slant, or to decorate them by bending, burning or painting. For stitching the parts a simple two-thread stitch is used, with one or two seams and back-stitches, and the gluing can be temporary or permanent. In the process the time and production quotas are presented, which are influenced by the qualification level of the workers, as well as the performance of the machines used.
