Applied Lean Six Sigma
Led by an experienced professional in Lean and Six Sigma practices, students learn advanced tools of continuous improvement through class work and real-world projects with Marquette University departments and local organizations. Students participate in a continuous improvement project with a team throughout the semester. The students also have the benefit of receiving guidance on their projects from an assigned experienced professional mentor.
Students will understand the uses for Network Design and be able to apply it to real world problems. In addition, they will work through framing a problem, and using project management steps to drive a solution to completion. Students work in teams on a semester-long problem, acting as off-site consultants. Project types can include: impact of a change in inventory policy, near shoring impacts, risk mitigation/supply interruptions.
