Supply chain managers design and manage supply chain networks that deliver high-quality products to the right customers at the right time at minimum cost. Six Sigma processes are powerful tools that supply chain managers can use to identify and solve supply chain problems.

The course begins by introducing you to the basics of supply chain management. You will learn how supply chains are integrated and coordinated networks that perform a variety of functions. They deliver business processes to procure raw materials, then they transform the raw materials into final products or services and finally, deliver the product/service to the customer. Six Sigma processes help supply chain managers to improve each step of the supply chain by identifying and eliminating problems.

This course will be of great interest to professionals in the areas of supply chain management, logistics, manufacturing and Six Sigma and quality management, and all learners who would like to learn more about the application of Six Sigma processes in supply chain management.

Prerequisites: It is recommended that you have studied the courses 'Six Sigma - Introduction To Taguchi Methods And Robust Design – Revised 2018', and 'Six Sigma - Understanding Benchmarking Methods – Revised 2018'.
