APPLICATION OF LEAN SIX SIGMA METHODOLOGY TO OPTIMIZATION PROCESSES OF DATA MANAGEMENT IN AN EDUCATIONAL CONTEXT

Susana Falcão, Francisco Nunes, Alberto Carneiro

Abstract

This paper aims to contribute with some thoughts about database and information management in Portuguese educational context, at the level of schools and supervisors schools, as well as about transmission of information among them. We also emphasize the importance of definition and development of standardized technology platforms in order to build and develop structures that ensure the interoperability of information exchange and management among the various entities of an information system. In this paper we suggest a methodology (Lean / Six Sigma) that combines the reduction of complexity of the process with the improvement of reliability and efficiency.
