Lean Six Sigma



The company Power World has 7 employees (5 x production, 1 x logistics, 1 x maintenance) and manufactures wind turbines. Its manufacturing is based on the classic push principle. The first round of the game is characterised by overproduction, excessive stock levels, large batch sizes, unnecessary transport journeys, quality issues, and long set-up times, stoppages, and waiting times. Using the DMAIC cycle, participants will gradually implement the Lean Six Sigma methodology and lead the company back into profitability.
