Lean Six Sigma: A business efficiency method that relies on collaborative team efforts to improve performance. It employs a combination of strategic and operations management practices, and data analytics/statistics. It is intended to eliminate waste, and improve the quality of process outputs by identifying, and removing the causes of defects, and minimizing variability. It contains the underlying principles that drive the ‘DMAIC’ problem solving process.
Why Companies use Lean Six Sigma:
Increase Profitability – Drive Shareholder Value
Improve the Customer Experience
Lean Concepts are…
A way to understand value from the viewpoint of the customer and eliminate waste — activities that don’t add value
• Value Added and Non Value-Added:
• Customers are willing to pay for it.
• It physically changes the product.
• It’s done right the first time.
Non Value-Added Step
• Is not essential to produce output.
• Does not add value to the output.
• Typically, less than 5% of the time it takes to complete a task is value-adding
• A rigorous performance improvement approach based on quality.
• A customer-focused, data driven approach to understanding process variation (stability) and defect reduction (capability).
• Heavy reliance on process modeling, consistent data collection, and statistics.
• Identifies differences in accuracy; did you hit what you were aiming at, vs. precision; did the shots land together (identifying root cause).
• A performance target of 3.4 defects per million opportunities
