Lean Six Sigma is an integrated approach of two powerful and complimentary business strategies; Lean Production and Six Sigma. The purpose of this integrated approach is to achieve a dramatic impact on an organisation's ability to do the things right first time, leading to higher quality and reliability, higher productivity, faster delivery and lower costs.
With an exciting theme for the upcoming conference, I would like to invite papers for the following sub-themes:
Six Sigma for panufacturing processes.
Six Sigma for service processes.
Six Sigma for transactional processes.
Lean for service and transactional processes.
Lean Sigma applications in service, manufacturing and transactional environments.
Six Sigma for SMEs.
Lean strategy for SMEs.
Application of Six Sigma tools/techniques for problem solving.
Application of lean production tools/techniques for problem solving.
Six Sigma and its link to other quality initiatives (such as ISO9001:2000, Continuous Improvement initiatives such as kaizen).
Role of leadership for Six Sigma.
Design for Six Sigma/Lean Sigma
Six Sigma in software business.
Six Sigma in supply chain.
The basis for acceptance of papers is that they are relevant and make a contribution to the current literature of Six Sigma, lean production strategy, Lean Six Sigma, quality engineering, quality management, etc. Authors are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words or less to the scientific co-ordinators. All conference abstracts will be double-blind reviewed by the members of a technical committee to ensure their academic rigour, practical significance to industrial arena and value to existing literature.
