SIX SIGMA R&D AND THE SUPPLY CHAINAuthors: Dr. William L. Olson and Dr. Jim Liu
Company: Motorola Labs
Date Published: 9/25/2005 Conference: SMTA International
The program is a win-win since the supplier's six sigma training costs are more than offset by the cost savings that are generated for their company. Furthermore, Motorola businesses save money as well since through Mot Labs’ mentorship of these Green Belts/Black Belts, Motorola business units share in the cost savings that result. This innovative program has strengthened supply chain partnership and our Asia supplier’s commitment to Six Sigma R&D through its development of their people, improving organizational capabilities and its successful generation of positive bottom line financial results.
