- Speaker:Bahadir Inozu, Ph.D., USA
- Occupation:CEO, NOVACES, LLC
- About speaker:Dr. Inozu is chief executive officer and a co-founder of NOVACES. He is a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt and a Theory of Constraints Jonah. Prior to NOVACES, he served as Chairman and Professor of the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and Professor of Engineering Management at the University of New Orleans. He also served as the Director of the Reliability, Operations and Maintenance Division of the Gulf Coast Region Maritime Technology Center.
He is credited with pioneering the integration of Lean Six Sigma in the U.S. shipbuilding industry through research sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. Currently, he is formulating the integration of Theory of Constraints and Lean Six Sigma, a groundbreaking approach to process improvement for applications in variable demand environments.
For over twenty years he has been a thought leader, conducting more than twenty major applied research projects and writing over seventy journal articles. His work includes the development of a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) incorporating capabilities for reliability and availability analysis. Additionally, he created the world standard hierarchy of equipment boundaries for reliability performance data.
Dr. Inozu earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1986 and 1990 respectively. He received a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Istanbul Technical University.

Topic of the presentation
How to Achieve Superior Performance Improvement by Integrating Constraints Management with Lean and Six Sigma : Examples from Government, Public Services and Healthcare
It has been demonstrated that low organizational productivity stems from a variety of root causes such as poor project due date performance, prolonged lead times, de-scoped or cancelled projects, cost and budget overruns. At the same time there are task overloads, poor coordination, severe and chronic multitasking, unclear and conflicting priorities as well as very complex processes. These problems lead to overloaded resources, burn-out and high turnover levels, causing general dissatisfaction, high stress levels, the general feeling of dissatisfaction and low morale of civil servants.
Governments worldwide are beginning to see that leading management methodologies, which helped some innovative organizations develop effective solutions, can now produce the results that taxpayers are demanding. Today’s leading perfomance improvement methodologies are Lean (a systematic approach to eliminate waste), Six Sigma (a rigorous, data-driven process to eliminate defects), and Constraints Management (a.k.a.Theory of Constraints – a breakthrough methodology to identify and manage a system’s constraints).
Proper integration of these methodologies results in a very structured, focused approach to process and performance improvement with system-level impact. Constraints Management provides the missing element of where to focus improvements which is critical to maximizing the Return on Investment. In fact, the integration of Lean and Six Sigma with Constraints Management often yields 10 to 20 times greater returns than by implementing Lean and Six Sigma in isolation.
Baha Inozu will share his vast experience on how to integrate Constraints Management with Lean and Six Sigma and why focusing improvement efforts have resulted in significant and immediate results in the United States and abroad from a long list of his team’s track record.
