Strategy
Over the last eight years, Caterpillar has demonstrated the
usefulness of 6 Sigma in achieving its strategic goals, not only in
manufacturing and engineering, but across the whole organization.
CAT Logistics - The Supply Chain
Supply Chain
Supplier
Manufacturing Distribution
Dealer / Retail
Consumer
Supply Chain is the flow of materials, information, and finances as they move in a process
from the origin point to the end consumer
Logistics involves all of the planning, execution & control required to successfully deliver the
product to the end consumer
The goal is to optimize this flow to achieve low cost and high customer service
Forming CAT Logistics enabled the transition of CPS to mass customization

Caterpillar recently adapted a real-time location system (RTLS).
By placing an RFID tag on each wrench, the RTLS system can ensure that
the appropriate wrench is used in the proper location with right torque.
The connection to Israel


Israel Defense Forces (IDF) uses Caterpillar bulldozers
The most famous machine in use by the IDF is the heavy Caterpillar
D9 armored bulldozer. (‫)דובי‬
The IDF Caterpillar D9 was involved in an incident in 2003, in which the
American activist Rachel Corrie was killed by a bulldozer. A lawsuit was
launched against Caterpillar and Israel by her family and the families of
Palestinians who were also killed by Caterpillar equipment.
The lawsuit was rejected by the court, which ruled that her death was
an accident, caused by restricted field of view from the heavily armored
operators' cabin.
