Conference Integrates Lean and Six Sigma

July 1, 2003

CHICAGO—Manufacturing Excellency: Integrating Lean and Six Sigma for Improved Manufacturing Efficiency will take place at The Sutton Place Hotel in Chicago on August 25 to 27.

Leading manufacturers are saving millions of dollars annually and simultaneously improving product quality by implementing and integrating lean and Six Sigma programs. Industry experts agree that only a few organizations have effective implementation, and as a result, manufacturers are looking to these peers to see how they have managed to achieve dramatic and sustainable gains. Those that emulate and incorporate these successes will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.

Corporations are using integral lean and Six Sigma applications to reduce costs, waste, lead times, inventory and overhead, while increasing quality, productivity, market share and ROI. This program includes a workshop, case studies, panel discussions and expert lead sessions. Learn from industry innovators across a range of industries with proven best practices.
