Consultants from Technopak Advisors Limited delivered the content of theworkshop, with Rakesh Ranjan, Senior Consultant, Technopak, as the instructor, assisted byPrashant Kumar, Consultant, Technopak. The workshop was attended by 70 participants, of whom 60 were students and ten faculty members of Government College University, Faisalabad. Purpose:  This workshop is the first among the series of workshops planned with the objective of providinga flavor of theories in practice to the academia. This workshop captured the essence of LeanSigma which is a hybrid concept of lean manufacturing and six sigma. This is a relatively newconcept and the workshop highlighted the practical applications of Lean Sigma in garmentmanufacturing industry. Methodology:  The workshop entailed a detailed presentation with an innovation exercise and profounddiscussions with the participants. Proceedings:  The day’s proceedings started with a welcome address by Ayesha Imtiaz, Incharge Departmentof Industrial Management, followed by a few words from Rana Shahid Mahboob, ViceChancellor, GCUF. This was followed by a presentation on GEN-PROM by the National ProjectManager, Sajeel Butt. (Presentation is attached as Annexure 1.)Mr. Ranjan started off by defining six sigma as a modern management concept or technique inwhich the participation of people is highly valued. High process velocity in manufacturing iscalled lean manufacturing (‘lean’ being the elimination of waste), whereas six sigma can bedefined as a tool for improving quality.The history of lean manufacturing and six sigma was detailed, as well as companies that haveimplemented them. Throughout this the fact was stressed that for a business to grow, it has to beowned by the people working for it.An exercise was carried out to trigger out-of-the-box thinking among the participants: a piece of paper was to be divided into five equal parts. After the exercise Mr. Kumar and Mr. Ranjanshowed the audience how it could be done. The purpose of this exercise was to show that theconcept of six sigma tells the participant to innovate without the help of infrastructural tools.  2   At the end of the presentation, the presenter showed how to apply lean in manufacturing, andsaid that while six sigma takes two to six months to apply, lean usually takes about two months.(Presentation is attached as Annexure 2.)Concluding remarks to the workshop were given by Syed Afraz Gillani, Lecturer, Department of Industrial Engineering, who thanked the participants for attending and the presenters for theeffort they put into conducting the workshop.
