Abstract

This work describes a proposed sequential scheme to identify and eliminate transportation waste. Current available schemes are based on eliminating transport efficiency wastes and do not consider this feature. The sequential nature of the scheme enables the possibility of handling multiple objectives, limited resource and goal setting situations. This new scheme considers also the elimination of the seven transportation extended wastes. The application of the improvement scheme is illustrated in the routing operations of a Mexican company.
