Poster Session COMPETITION


The 2022 LSSDS Poster Session Competition highlights best practices and tangible results achieved by applying Lean Six Sigma (LSS) and Data Science (DS) across multiple industries and settings. This competition provides visual storyboards of industry-based case studies, results of independent and sponsored research, as well as best practices in academic innovations using LSS and DS tools and techniques. The poster session is open to all conference attendees with posters on display throughout the conference.

Three finalists are to be selected from posters at the conference based upon Peer Voting and Poster Session presentations made to a Judging Panel of Lean Six Sigma and Data Science professionals. Cash award prizes totaling $600 will be distributed to three finalists based upon their finishing position: first place, second place and third place. All others will receive honorable mention.
