Lean Six Sigma is a business improvement methodology which combines (as
the name implies) tools from both Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma. Lean manufacturing
focuses on speed and Six Sigma focuses mainly on quality. By combining the two, the
result is better qualityfaster.
Today, many major corporations and the government
utilize Lean Six Sigma. As a hybrid, Lean Six Sigma is able to go a step further
than the preceding philosophies could in mitigating risk. In its simplest form, Lean
Six Sigma aims to identify and eliminate waste in order to increase speed and flow.
To 'lean' a process is to identify and layout each step required from the end product
back to the beginning of the process, identify the critical steps, and address those
not required or nonessential.
Lean Six Sigma concepts are powerful in improving any
transactional process, whether in the factory or business office. Because the Lean
Six Sigma focus is to create flow and eliminate wastes there is a significant cost
savings which is realized by the business.
