Differentiating Between Lean Manufacturing And Six Sigma

Image by Tumisu from Pixabay  In the business world, of late, you can witness a debate going on – Lean manufacturing Vs Six Sigma – which one is the best to opt to achieve your business goals. Many people have strong opinions about both methods. However, both methods share the same goal that is cutting costs and eliminating waste. But, they use different approaches to achieve this common goal. Lean manufacturing is a systematic and well-calculated way of eliminating waste and creating flow in the production process through the adoption of lean principles. On the other hand, Six-Sigma is a set of techniques that focuses on reducing the rate of errors. What is Lean Manufacturing? Lean manufacturing technology is not new. This technology was first introduced by Henry Ford. He wanted to keep the production standards very high so that each step falls naturally into the next one, thereby reducing the waste gradually. Then another automobile giant Toyota implemented this process and founded the Toyota Production System (TPS), which became one of the most efficient systems in the world. The biggest difference between Lean and Six Sigma is that they analyze the cause of waste differently.  Lean demonstrates seven types of wastes that…

AI Integration, Amazingly the Best For Your Supply Chain

Image by Tumisu from Pixabay Have you ever given a thought to applying machine learning and other types of AI to the terabytes of transactional and sensor data being collected from the supply chain? The time is here and the amazing result you get will definitely be a much more autonomous and effective form of supply chain analytics, supply chain management, and, ultimately, an overwhelming as well as highly responsive supply chain. David Simchi-Levi, a professor of engineering systems at MIT says, “In fact, there is a lot of interest in using AI and machine learning to enhance supply chain analytics.” Where your concentration should be in the supply chain is the opportunity to be able to integrate predictive and prescriptive analytics, which in essence, translates to blending AI and optimizing technologies. The competition in the global market has become very stiff and you need to take every worthwhile opportunity that comes your way in order to continue to be relevant. The two areas you can efficiently apply AI in your supply chain are, to enable predictive analytics to understand behaviors and for prescriptive analytics, thereby, allowing optimization technologies to take input from machine learning and try to help your brand to make…

The Possible Fallouts From The U.S. And China’s Trade War

Just last June, there was a ray of hope at the G-20 meeting in Osaka, Japan with the announcement by the leaders of China and the United States that their trade war was thawing out. According to the U.S. President Donald Trump, the two countries had set negotiations “back on track.”  This led to the U.S jettisoning any idea of new tariffs on Chinese goods and also suspending the embargo placed on U.S. companies from trading with Huawei, the Chinese IT giant that the U.S has blacklisted. Nations across the globe heaved a sigh of relief, markets picked up, and the media was abuzz with “cease-fire” reports. But alas, it turned out to be a “false flag,” just like many diplomatic on and off between Beijing and Washington. The outcome of the “jigsaw puzzle” was to have the Trump administration increased tariffs on another $125 billion worth of Chinese imports in September.  It’s a war and there is no going back, China retaliated by announcing further tariffs on $75 billion worth of U.S. goods. Nobody knows how the U.S. will respond to this but there are feelers that further tariffs will be issued in December, in an attempt to possibly…
