Once your processes are defined, we also help you to define measurements to track your process behaviour and measure its effectiveness.
WHAT IS LEAN?
Removal of waste from processes
Forms of waste include:
• Over Production
• Over Processing
WHAT ARE LEAN SYSTEMS?
Lean isn’t a short-term tactic, but rather a long-term attitude to improving how a business creates its products and ships them to their customers, while basing the entire process on the customer’s needs and wants. In other words, lean is a strategy utilized to improve a company’s processes and designed from the consumer’s perspective.
When you have an optimally lean process in place, you are able to perform smoothly and at peak efficiency without compromising quality. In the end, this leads to higher profit margins and reduced operating costs.
WHAT IS SIX SIGMA?
Measuring and quantifying efficiency
• Quality standard: 3.4 defects per one million opportunities
• Uses DMAIC or DMADV as processes to measure and design for efficiency
HOW DOES SIX SIGMA WORK?
At the end of the day, when your process is statistically running at a Six Sigma level, it is producing virtually zero defects. For example, if you were manufacturing 1 million smartphones, statistically only 3.4 out of the million would be defective. This low rate of defects leads to greater customer and vendor loyalty, improved brand reputation, and ultimately higher sales.
