Engineering Lean & Six Sigma (ELSS) Conference 2013

Sept. 23-25
Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel

Sharpening Your Lean & Six Sigma Tools at ELSS 2013
The success of continuous improvement at your organization highly depends on appropriate Lean & Six Sigma tools and processes. In the ever changing competitive environment you need to continually sharpen your tools, in other words, updating your knowledge. The same is true for academic research in Lean & Six Sigma since Lean is a very fast evolving area. The ELSS 2013 provides a unique forum for industry practitioners and researchers to network and share their ideas. This event provides an exciting opportunity for attendees to learn about frontier Lean & Six Sigma tools, sustainable implementations of Lean & Six Sigma tools in world class organizations, and cutting edge research from the experts.

ELSS 2013 will be packed with various activities including keynote presentations, panel discussions, interactive forums, concurrent industry & research presentations, facility tours, story boards for successful Lean & Six Sigma implementations, and presentations focused on career development. There will be a poster competition and monetary awards will be given to the winners. All academic papers will be peer-reviewed, and the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Track specific best paper will be selected and authors will be recognized.

As a conference chair of the Engineering Lean & Six Sigma (ELSS) Conference 2013, I would like to invite you to sharpen your Lean & Six Sigma tools. The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel in Atlanta on Sept. 23-25. Don’t miss this opportunity. Please visit www.iienet.org/leansixsigma for the latest updates.
