Six Sigma and Supply Chain Information Sharing in Action
Accurate and reliable data is needed to support decision making processes, particularly in complex operations such as supply chain management. Due to the large number of participants (internal and external to the organization) that are typically involved in supply chain operations, organizations often find that it is difficult to effectively share information and align goals within the supply chain. To address this issue, the Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) methodology was utilized within a marine transportation organization’s supply chain to create a process for effectively and efficiently sharing information about inland tank barge equipment between supply chain members. See the results.
