Process management of waste generated on ships

Abstract: This work is not intended to be a theoretical study on management by processes and continuous im-provement, but rather its implementation, as an analysis methodology, to the specific case of waste management, on board ships, for subsequent delivery in the ports. However, there will be a description of what is process management and continuous improvement and some of the associated tools for its implementation, highlighting, from the wide range existing, those that can be adjusted to our needs at the time of apply this methodology. Subsequently, a study of the existing literature is made, regarding its use in the maritime field and finally the application to the specific case of waste management on board is developed, which will allow us to analyze how waste management is carried out on board, identify problems or aspects for improvement and make proposals for improvement. The lack of space and the difficulties for the segregation of waste on board ships are shown as the main obstacles to proper waste management.
