Lean Six Sigma in Purchase/Supply chain Services

It is well understood that a customer finally pays money for the efficiency of not just the manufacturer/ service provider but the efficiency of the entire supply chain (also called value chain in service sector). This means we expect high efficiency to be delivered through the entire Chain.

A Manufacturer can provide a quality which is highly dependent on -

The Suppliers and the suppliers of suppliers (reaching sometimes upto mining or extraction of a natural product)

Clients and clients of clients. (going through value addition by clients, and moving through Distributors, Stockists and Retailers finally reaching the end user)

Somebody who is managing the supply chain has to manage the issues of quality and delivery across supply chain. This means he has opportunities if doing DMAIC and DFSS projects involving suppliers and intermediaries.

Some industries impose certain certification programs on suppliers - for example an automotive component supplier needs to have TS 16949 certification and his suppliers need to be ISO 9001 certified.

Similarly some other companies (as in electronic industry) have supplier approval and supplier assurance programs.

Some other industries are keen to know about labor practices, ethics, environmental and safety consciousness of their suppliers (example - pharmaceutical industry)

All such programs can be complemented by Six Sigma because Continual Improvement is a requirement in all such programs. Six Sigma has now become synonymous with continual improvement.
