This Lean Six Sigma Project done by student from Advance Innovation group which is posted to provide for benchmarking and best practices sharing purposes and aimed at providing the insight to students on how to apply Six Sigma in Transport Domain.
This project uses the DMAIC framework of Six Sigma in order to optimize the transport cost in the organization. Increasing Cost it in any area can be a huge concern in an organization as hits the bottom line and margins of the firm. Thus this project focuses on the understanding the transport cost optimization and there by getting the organization save huge money.
This project was initiated keeping in mind the reduction of the overhead cost of transportation pick and drops of employees which was at a much higher side than the Industry standard and was significantly impacting the profit margin of the organization.
We moved ahead with the documentation of the Project Charter, calculating the Process Capability and then moved ahead to identify the Xs and represented them in the project using the Fishbone or the Ishikawa Diagram and the designed a new process map modifying the process steps and after implementing the New Changed process collected the New data on which conducted the Pre Post Analysis and calculated the process capability and in Analyze identified the Root Cause of the Problem, after identifying the Root Cause moved to Improve Phase and designed the Improvement Plan, after implementing the Improvement Plan collected the data and validated the improvement and then designed the Control Plan using the risk management tool Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and the post collecting data checked the process stability using the Control Charts.
