Lean Six Sigma in Supply Chain & Logistics

Lean Six Sigma in Supply Chain & Logistics

Introduction :

An organization’s supply chain must be agile and quickly responsive to the changing needs of its customers. Companies that are attuned to their customer’s changing needs have completed a vital first step in creating a supply chain that fulfills these needs. The define phase of Six Sigma requires organizations to measure their progress in terms that customers consider to be critical to quality (CTQ).

Supply chains made inefficiently with high error rates need Lean Six Sigma. Many points in the supply chain can benefit from the Lean technique of Poka-Yoke. This is a mistake-proofing procedure that prevents human error by forcing the user to complete the task correctly. For example, a software enabled drill counts the number of holes drilled into a work piece; a buzzer sounds if the work piece is removed before the correct number of holes has been drilled.

Six Sigma is a business management strategy that is used primarily to identify and rectify errors and defect in a manufacturing or service process. Six Sigma presents 3 different strategies for the logistics company. It can improve processes, redesign processes that are out of date and no longer relevant, and help logistics companies with the ongoing management of processes. 

A common issue deals with shipment errors. These are either reported by the customer or realized by the company after delivery. Even one incorrect shipment per month qualifies as unacceptable in the eyes of this process, especially when there is obviously a reason why the incorrect deliveries continue to happen. 

Anexas has helped one of the largest logistics and shipping companies in the world save wealth worth millions of dollars, by implementing end to end Lean six Sigma Projects to increase the utilization of pickup trucks from 80% to 90% in a span of 6 months.
