Lean 6σ Learning Academy

UiS is part of the Lean 6σ Learning Academy, organised by European Networks for Performance Enhancement in Mechanical (Manufacturing) and Construction Industry.

Published Updated on

lean six sigma

Together with the European Networks (in Finland, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Turkey, United Kingdom, Portugal) for Performance enhancement and Department of Mechanical and Structural Engineering and Materials Science.

University of Stavanger (UiS) has a number of strong academic communities linked to the field of performance enhancing in Mechanical and Construction Industry.

The areas of expertise include:

  • Mechanical (manufacturing) / Construction / Additive manufacturing
  • Engineering and circular economy (circular construction and manufacturing)
  • Lean manufacturing concepts and lean six sigma implementation / supply chain management
  • Gamification based knowledge dissemination
  • Information Technology
  • Digitalization of mechanical/manufacturing and construction operations [building information modelling (BIM)]
  • Implementation of lean philosophies in knowledge work (e.g. engineering design, product development, innovation, entrepreneurship, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and eco-system mapping
  • Asset integrity assessment and control
