    Can anyone please provide a few concrete sentences explaining the link between Supply Chain Management and Six Sigma? I’ve seen quite the buzz around the two issues, but I can’t figure out how they are really related. Kind regards.

    To me, Six Sigma is a philosophy and a set of tools that can be used in a variety of functional areas to address waste.
    Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a function. (And it can be a very tough function! Suppliers can be very tough to work with.) Six Sigma can be used in SCM, just like it can be used so many places.

    I agree that Six Sigma is a function but I disagree that SCM is a hard process. If the suppliers are making the SCM process hard then I would suggest that you educate them or at worst change suppliers. Both the buyer as well as the seller have a vested interest in the buyer’s company or operations section producing a quality product at a competive price.
    Remember the principal “Supply and Demand.”
