ABSTRACT

Supply chains are impacted by both product quality and data quality—as materials and products are moved and transferred throughout a global supply chain, so are big data elements. Critical information such as item identification, material characteristics like colors and sizes, batch numbers, quantities, conditions, transportation modes, and production dates get communicated between suppliers and customers along with the physical items themselves. 

With the growth of digital supply chain management, supply chain transparency requirements, the internet of things, customer/supplier collaboration, advanced data analytics, and information requirements from customers, breakdowns in data quality can be just as costly as poor product quality. This session will identify examples of poor data that impacts end users, the growth of customer data portals, current customer data needs and the available tools for maintaining real-time data integration, and methods for automating transmission of data between supply chain elements using specialized barcode standards and scanners.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
