Obtain a working knowledge of Lean and Six Sigma Methodologies. Understand how the concepts behind these two methodologies can increase your throughput, reduce defects and speed your response to changing customer demands.

Lean is a proven method for reducing waste in any process. It can help you speed up and deliver more with the same resources. Lean manufacturing means that your product is not too early and never late. Your inventory is not just-in-case inventory but just-in time for production and delivery. Your products are always made right the first time and your equipment always work when needed.

Six Sigma on the other hand is a proven management tool to eliminate defects and mistakes in everything a company does. Originally developed by Motorola in the 1980’s, it has since been implemented and benchmarked by numerous world class organizations such as GE, Caterpillar, Honeywell, ABB, Sony, Texas Instruments, Ford, Johnson Control Systems, etc. with the purpose of reducing variability in processes, reducing quality costs, improving process capability and enhancing process throughput yield.

WHEN TO USE Lean and Six Sigma

Lean is used mainly for optimizing daily operations and for looking for incremental improvements in performance. Six Sigma is used mainly to find solutions for hard to solve problems caused by variation. Used together, Lean and Six Sigma provide two very powerful tools to improve performance.
