University of St Thomas (UNITED STATES)
This paper proposes an innovative teaching methodology for the understanding of new operation theories such as Holonic Manufacturing and Six Sigma. Its goal is to contribute to the quest for quality, efficiency, and effectiveness in business education and industry.

This study provides useful insights about how to successfully create a "holonic" network to enhance quality systems in a worldwide setting. In the process of discovery and implementation of new philosophies for improvement, effective instruction represents the cornerstone for accomplishment. The findings include a suggested strategy that would be suitable for the direction, preparation, and education of the workforce. The advances in Holonic Manufacturing bring interesting obstacles to be overcome and a fresh, contemporary kind of leadership. Co-ordination is the key for achievement.

Holonic systems can vary and hold a different a view among diverse businesses. Interactions between networks can also fluctuate. This research has been completed for industry in general because its main purpose is to observe the applications of holonic structures in Six Sigma projects. The main objective of the Six Sigma philosophy is to control defects in a great deal of production processes and/or services. For instance, nowadays it is not uncommon to find Six Sigma schemes within healthcare, finance, and government or military projects. In that sense, this study analyses the application of holonic structures and proposes that they could be employed in general commercial endeavours.

This technical analysis pursues the important goal of discovering new industrial procedures and experiences for the international cooperation. Quality improvement is always an essential requirement. In addition, there is a continuous need for being acquainted with innovative methodologies. The purpose of this investigation is also to understand these theories as a contribution for the quest for success.
