Abstract

Lean Six Sigma Supply Chain Management and have share commonalities in terms of process and focus on solving customer problems to achieve customer satisfaction. They also complement each other and can be integrated together. This work has extended previous work on the proposed approaches and the implementation of the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC to improve Supply Chain Management using tools. Lean Six Sigma Tools efficient movement through the Supply Chain Management, including inventories, schedules, quantities of demand, etc. Supply Chain Management can use Lean Six Sigma principles, such as focusing on added value for customers, reducing waste and deficient, streamlining the value stream, and improved delivery times. The relevance of these tools and methods generally depends on the understanding of the methods and application environment. Improving the implementation, management and performance of a supply chain are not easy tasks. However, Supply Chain Management can use the concepts and tools of Lean Six Sigma to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction in terms of cost, quality and delivery. The case study provides an example implementation of Lean Six Sigma to improve a Supply Chain. It validated the implementation and provided a description of all phases of DMAIC.
