Roll-Kraft is actively participating in the Weatherhead School of Management’s Six-Sigma Continuous-Improvement Project. Graduate students from Master of Science in Management-Operations Research & Supply Chain, Masters of Business Administration, and Masters of Engineering and Management are involved in the Six Sigma and Quality management course. Near the end of their course study, the students are paired with a local manufacturing company to allow them to work with and observe relevant processes in a real-life production situation and make recommendations where methods could be improved.
Roll-Kraft is pleased to have been accepted for this program and is actively completing its second semester of student involvement. Projects have included investigating ways to reduce waste and, this semester, determining methods to minimize or eliminate machine downtime on the production floor.
This program provides each student with the experience of participating in the daily activities of a manufacturing company. It also benefits the company by having fresh, independent eyes on its processes, in order to identify areas of improvement. At the end of the project, the students present their findings to the sponsor company. The program has been a great success, and Roll-Kraft plans to continue this community involvement with the university.
