This course addresses the methods, tools and techniques related to Operational Excellence in order to improve the performance of a supply chain facing the challenges of today’s market. Special attention will be drawn to the adoption of Lean Six Sigma and their impact on people and organizations. Lean is strongly focusing on lead time reduction as well as flexibility, while Six Sigma is more chasing on the reduction of variances and production of extreme high quality parts or services. The combination of these two methods can lead to a competitive advantage to other supply chains.
