Abstract: Cotecmar, the Science and Technology Corporation for the Development of the Maritime, Naval and River Industry, is a non-profit organization established in 2000. It serves to satisfy Colombian Navy needs and to lead industry growth through research, development, and innovation. The main services offered by Cotecmar are in the shipyard industry and include services such as shipbuilding, repair and maintenance, and design. Nowadays, Cotecmar leads the shipyard industry in Colombia and is one of the main options to provide goods and services in Central and South America. The supply chain for the shipyard industry needs to be flexible and efficient to face unpredictable demands from maintenance and repair projects. This project seeks to provide recommendations to implement a lean procurement strategy in Cotecmar, for the maintenance and repair projects done by the Bocagrande complex, and to set up an example to further applications that help create a lean supply chain. With the data collected from different sources such as Enterprise Resource Planning, the Quality Management System, and internal regulations and databases, the research identifies all the non-value-added activities to determine those that are a waste. After identifying the most common waste within the requirements Value Stream Map, further analysis provides recommended actions to reduce that waste and achieve an efficient procurement process.
