Lehrinhalte

In this module students will apply the knowledge mainly related to Operational Excellence from module 8 to their own project. In order to promote a scientific approach and systematic thinking students will adopt DMAIC from six sigma as a general framework to structure their projects: define, measure, analyze, improve and control. Of course, students can use other methods and models within Operational Excellence as well, e.g.: lean, TPM, WCM, ECR and QRM. Special attention will be drawn to the scientific approach: establish a concrete problem statement, objective, operationalization, information gathering, measure, data analyses and testing.Each individual student will be assigned to a tutor. After the define-phase students should get a formal approval, before they can carry out their project.
