Lean Six Sigma and supplier relationship management: a winning combination for value creation

Time is money, and this is never truer than in Facilities Management (FM). On a recent assignment with FM suppliers of a major UK property management company, we discovered a great deal of non-value added time was being incurred by the suppliers’ field personnel while servicing fire and security systems. Through a fact-based and systematic analysis we were able to implement improvements that reduced supplier costs by 25% while improving service levels.
