About the Evening:

As many of you are probably aware, "new talent" is in short supply for companies in logistics, manufacturing, warehousing and other APICS focused disciplines.  The Supply Chain Management program in the John L. Grove College of Business at Shippensburg University is graduating 40 – 50 students each year and the program is growing.  Dr. Robert Neidigh teaches  classes on quality that are  major course requirements for undergraduate Supply Chain Management Majors, graduate Supply Chain Management Certificate students, and MBA students with a Supply Chain Management Concentration.  In his presentation, Dr. Neidigh will discuss and illustrate the topics covered in class and teaching methods. These include six sigma and lean tools introduced through experiential learning.  There are also "hands-on" projects that help students use quality methods to study and improve processes.

About the Speaker:
