Learn from Fikes’ vast experience in supply chain design, leading initiative launches and engineering project execution with P&G in a room of more than 1,300 Lean professionals. During her 23 years with P&G, Fikes has led efforts to increase capacity at existing sites and implemented the first Product lifecycle management (PLM) approaches in Wipes.
PLM is defined as “a strategic business approach that applies a consistent set of business solutions that support the collaborative creation, management, dissemination and use of product definition information,” according to CIMdata.
Fikes took her leadership skills with her to Beijing, China for two years, where she delivered $80-120 million per year in capital project executions to increase capacity through new site construction and expansions at existing sites. While overseas, she also managed 150 engineers at the regional technical centers and plants in China, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam and several other Asian countries.
