Kaizen in Logistics and Supply Chains gives a highly detailed explanation of how kaizen principles are holistically applied to transform logistics and streamline supply chain processes. The book carries on the themes from the bestseller Gemba Kaizen by Masaaki Imai, and expands on how these ideas have been successfully applied. The work is richly illustrated with more than 200 photographs, flow diagrams, value stream maps, and tables. The last third of the book uses a case study to demonstrate how kaizen logistics and supply chain principles are applied in practice. Appendices include formulas and algorithms not found in other competitor texts.
