Lean Six Sigma

tLean Six Sigma

Originally developed to improve manufacturing efficiency and quality, Lean Six Sigma is now being widely adopted by both the public and private sector in industries such as telecom, finance, medical, and retailers.  Lean Six Sigma is a blend of two concepts: lean manufacturing, which is aimed at reducing waste, and Six Sigma, which helps companies reduce errors.  Together they can help companies reap the benefits of faster processes with lower cost and higher quality.

  • We help clients address strategic priorities and transform operations by removing waste and driving high-quality business processes through the integration of the proven-improvement methodologies of Lean (Speed) and Six Sigma (Quality).
  • We provide Lean Six Sigma consulting to help identify more efficient business processes in the existing environment.   We work with leadership on implementing Design For Lean Six Sigma (DFLSS) across the enterprise for all new projects, which tremendously reduces cost by ensuring project efficiency prior to kick-off.

The Five Phases of Six Sigma

The most commonly used approach to implementing Six Sigma is known as ‘DMAIC’

  • Define the customers, their requirements, the process or the project boundaries
  • Measure the performance of the current process
  • Analyze information and identify where improvements can be made
  • Improve the process to achieve required performance
  • Control the implementation, monitoring results and introducing training and incentives to maintain process improvements
