A team of Millikin University MBA students collaborated with Caterpillar Inc. in an effort to learn about process improvement. After 18 weeks of classwork, the team got together with Caterpillar senior staff to take a deeper look at the company processes. Using Six Sigma, the team broke down and analyzed how things were done in an effort to improve the process and save money. The Millikin team crafted a way to monitor and track supplies that avoids waste and delay. This monitoring system has the potential to save the company more than $200,000 a year.
