Lean Manufacturing is about creating more value for customers by eliminating activities that are considered waste. Any activity or process that consumes resources, adds cost or time without creating value presents an opportunity for improvement.
One of the important aspects of Lean is the focus on 'system-level' improvements as opposed to piecemeal improvement. This knowledge, combined with the understanding of how to remove waste properly, is critical for any successful Lean implementation.
Six Sigma is a tried-and-tested methodology that has helped many organizations to increase profits through improved business efficiency and customer satisfaction. Compared with other quality initiatives, Six Sigma has the following special features:
Effective management involvement.
Diligent attention to improving business processes.
Disciplined application of the methodology and use of facts.
Strong results orientation.
When both of these proven operational strategies are combined, it simply doubles the operational improvement results.
