    Hi Folks.  I work in a distribution company (non-LEAN and non-Six Sigma) and have been asked by a customer to address the following question – “How can you, the supplier, help us in our LEAN and Six Sigma Journey?”  Any suggestions/input?  I should add that I have my Green Belt and am currently enrolled in a Black Belt course so I have an idea how to reply, but I’m looking for ideas that I can incorporate in our response.
    Thanks,
    Spooky

    By actively participating in their end-to-end process improvement inititives that include your relationship with them.
    We regularly engaged the suppliers in these types of efforts at Bank of America.  They all were non-SS shops as well, but it was a great opportunity for the supplier to gain insight into their customer’s CTQs.  And we pushed for improvements on their side.
