Program Summary:
LSS-Pathways Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) approach provides a unique transformation process to drive enterprise-wide improvements (waste elimination, cycle time improvement, and cost reduction) in private industry in the DOD sectors. To date, the LSS-Pathways CPI approach has been use to engage five Prime Contractors, 47 Supplier Companies at the enterprise level, one Air Force Logistics Center and five Navy Aircraft Carriers (Lean Engagements in Critical Areas and Lean Leader Certification), resulting in improved value chain performance and weapon system affordability and availability.   The CPI tools�Lean, Pathways, Six Sigma and Theory of Constraints�provide Company Senior Management Leadership Teams with a proven, common sense metrics approach that transforms their organizations, not just to CPI Thinking, but all the way to successful, results-oriented Enterprise Transformation (Implementation/Sustainment).
