Topics covered include forecasting, inventory management, third-party logistics, partnering, contracts, event management and conflict resolution, e-business, and strategy.
ISEE-582
Lean Six-Sigma Fundamentals
This course presents the philosophy and methods that enable participants to develop quality strategies and drive process improvements. The fundamental elements of Lean Six Sigma are covered along with many problem solving and statistical tools that are valuable in driving process improvements in a broad range of business environments and industries. Successful completion of this course is accompanied by “yellow belt” certification (for A’s and B’s only), and provides a solid foundation for those who also wish to pursue a “green belt.” (Green belt certification requires completion of an approved project and exam, both of which are beyond the scope of this course).

Students analyze cross-functional business processes and ERP systems commonly used to support these processes. Students engage in a hands-on project using a current ERP system, such as SAP R/3, to demonstrate, analyze and design system structures, key data elements and process configurations that support cross-functional business processes, including accounting, sales, material management, production and distribution.
