SeaDek used supply chain techniques and Six Sigma to reduce major inventory stockouts in 2015. Inventory control tools were applied using DMAIC methodology. The company went from 14 major stockouts in 2014 to one stockout in 2015, resulting in a materials cost savings of more than $250,000 and improving on-time delivery from 44 percent the previous year to 95 percent in 2015.
