Operations and Supply Chain Center Industry Summit
Twice a year, the Operations and Supply Chain Center brings together executives from industry partner companies for the Moore School's Industry Summit. The summit highlights the findings of student teams that analyzed operations of major companies and made recommendations for improvements that could translate into significant savings for those firms.
Process improvements recommended by Moore student teams since the center’s inception in 2005 represent millions in savings for the center's member firms.
Students utilize a wide array of operations/process analyses from the Lean and Six-Sigma toolkit methodologies. Both International MBA students (who participate in projects during the fall semester) and undergraduate students in Operations & Supply Chain take part in a two-phase process of "greenbelt certification" (which affirms that the student has completed the necessary Six Sigma and Lean training) from Sonoco Products Company.
The Moore School offers a truly unique level of dual competencies in the domains of global supply chain management and operations/business process improvement not consistently offered at any other leading business school.
The Operations and Supply Chain Center was formed in 2005 to help companies improve performance and provide students with real-world experience and application of operations management skills learned in the classroom.
