Houston Wire & Cable's Lean Journey as a Distributor 3457
Houston Wire & Cable's Lean Journey as a Distributor

Online UH Student Branch & Section Prof. Dev. Meeting

Key Topics:

  • Building a lean culture in a distribution environment. Yes! You heard me correctly, we are not manufacturing.
  • Applying lean methodologies to assist our leadership teams in their day to day.
  • Making it stick.
  • A presentation from Distribution Center leaders themselves discussing lean six-sigma methodologies to improve the purchase of warehouse consumables distribution environment. They will discuss:
  • Variation and waste regarding purchase of consumables
  • Involvement of their teams
  • Process of improvement using the DMAIC process.

Why should I listen to this presentation?

If you are someone who is skeptical about applying lean six-sigma methodologies to an environment outside of a manufacturing, I challenge you to come with an open mind and hear how we are utilizing lean six-sigma methodologies.

If you are in the process of building a lean culture or thinking about getting started, you will benefit by hearing how lean six-sigma is integrated into our leadership. Our goal is to give the leader all the necessary tools to make the best decision. My goal in lean training is to have leaders use the tools, not the tools use the leaders.
