Title

Six Sigma Approach in Material Management

Abstract

The basic purpose of this project is to explore and study the implementation of six sigma principles in order to identify and minimize the defects and wastages that occur on a construction site.In recent years, construction companies have begun using Six Sigma methodology to reduce errors, excessive cycle times, inefficient processes and cost overruns. In construction we can say that, anything that does not match the requirements comes under the term ‘defect’. Late delivery and excessive wastage on site also be labeled under defects. In order to identify the defects on a project; a complete structure can be studied and tested regarding different perspectives. Therefore, in this paper an attempt is made to follow the DMAIC approach to identify the area of wastages of materials and rectify them. The primary objective being deriving reasons that lead to materials wastage on a residential site. Also, some fundamentals are included such as basic definitions and philosophy, efficient communication, team work, training and management, involvement and commitment. Moreover, besides defect reductions some other important results were observed in the implementation process, such as culture change, trained employees and better human resources and better project management skills. In conclusion, there were changes suggested for the better in the organizations where Six Sigma was implemented.

Key Words
