ENGINEERING LEAN AND SIX SIGMA explores the application and theory of lean and Six Sigma from its historical development to its current application. This two-day conference brings together the practitioners and the researchers to share the successes and identify the opportunities for applying proven tools and methods.
Lean and Six Sigma have their roots in industrial engineering. Lean tools are traditionally developed by industrial engineers to improve productivity and eliminate wastes while Six Sigma tools are originally used by engineering to improve quality, reliability and defect level of products and services. Many problem solving tools used in Six Sigma and lean are also basic IE tools: 5S, theory of constraints, structured brainstorming, cause-and-effect, process mapping, preventive control and error proofing.
Come early and attend one of the interactive pre-conference workshops: Adapting Lean in Jobshops or Building a Dream Culture.
