Lean is a Japanese approach to management that focuses on cutting out waste, whilst ensuring quality. This approach can be applied to all aspects of a business – from design, through production to distribution.

Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far less costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information management becomes much simpler and more accurate.

Six Sigma

Six Sigma is the most effective methodology available for improving the performance of any organization by minimizing the defects in its products or services. Every error committed, has a cost associated to it in form of losing customers, redoing a task, replacing a part, waste time/material or losing efficiency. The Six Sigma methodology was first endorsed at Motorola in the mid-1980s. The company was trying to devise a methodology that could measure defects at a granular level than previous methods and thus help in reducing these defects. This resulted in an astounding increase in the quality levels of several Motorola products, and the company received the inaugural Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1988. Motorola shared the Six Sigma secret openly, and soon various companies started reaping rewards.

Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a powerful, flexible and proven cost and waste elimination method that has been used successfully in both private and public organizations. It is applicable equally to both industrial/manufacturing processes and transactional/customer service processes. LSS traces its origins back to the 1950s via, at that time, the independent Lean process efficiency methodology and the Six Sigma quality improvement methodology. As a combined entity, LSS has been on the scene since the 1990s. Since then, LSS has been shown time and again to enable organizations to reduce total costs by 25% by eliminating wasted time and activities from operations. This waste reduction effort has also served to increase the quality of the organization’s products. Most importantly, LSS builds foundations within organizations that stimulate and nurture cultures of continuous improvement; thus providing these benefits both today and into the future.
