The purpose of this thesis was to solve a complex problem in the manufacturing industry. The complex problem is the disposition and redeployment of specialized manufacturing equipment while accounting for import, export and supply chain security. The problem-solving approach is discussed in detail, focusing on lean and six sigma methodologies for a solution meeting both company internal and external requirements. This combination of lean and six sigma methodology has been validated by use in a pharmaceutical company. The process flow to dispose equipment properly is presented in detail.
