What is Lean Six Sigma


  Lean Six Sigma is a philosophy of doing business with focus on reducing or eliminating defects in conjunction with improving the flow in the value stream. Lean Six Sigma combines the two most important improvement trends of our time: reducing the variation of the process and making work better (using Six Sigma methodology) as well as making work faster and more efficient (using Lean Manufacturing principles). 
  Six Sigma and lean manufacturing are toolkits to reduce waste in any kind of business processes.  Lean is an approach that seeks to improve flow in the value stream and eliminate waste. Six Sigma uses a powerful framework (DMAIC) and statistical tools to uncover root causes in order to understand and reduce variation. 

  The Lean Six Sigma methodology seeks to minimize the resources required for production by eliminating non-value added activities that inflate costs, lead times and inventory requirements, while emphasizing the use of quality improvement programs, preventive maintenance, pull systems, flexible work forces and flexible production facilities.


Lean Six Sigma's final goal is to delight our customers with speed and quality, creating a rapid transformation at lower cost.
