Driving Value through Lean Six Sigma
Now companies have acknowledged that Six Sigma and Lean share a common objective: to create value-based end-customer requirements. Recently, I had written a post titled “Applying Lean Manufacturing to Six Sigma” that talked about Lean and Six Sigma. Six Sigma has stimulated the concept that if a process lies within six standard deviations of the mean, production quality is definitely guaranteed. However, quality alone is not enough for the process.
The ability to eliminate process waste in the supply chain while delivering Six Sigma levels of quality will win the current race. If you keep a close watch on industry activities, you will find that there is rush among enterprises for achieving Six Sigma and lean standards in their organizations.
