The Science of Lean Operations
Identify and Alleviate Bottlenecks in Your Process
Previously named: The Science of Lean Six Sigma Operations
Generate a sustainable advantage in cost, quality, speed and customer service to achieve world-class performance. Using real-world case studies, group workshops and animated computer simulation models, you will explore a framework for diagnosing, improving and designing effective processing systems and for identifying leverage points with the greatest impact on the bottom line.
The business process flow paradigm examines an organization as a collection of business flows with a critical link between operational drivers and strategic success. You will analyze a set of "laws" representing the core science of lean operation in a collaborative learning environment. These tools provide a firm scientific foundation for the practice of lean six sigma operations to put into action in your organization.
This program is not meant to prepare managers for Six Sigma certification, but rather focuses on using Six Sigma as well as other measurements and tools to drive more efficient business strategies and processes.
