:: Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is an approach that combines the process improvement benefits of the Six Sigma method with the cost reduction benefits of lean production.

Lean production is a system of production based on eliminating 'muda', the term meaning waste in its broadest interpretation.

Lean production involves:

  • eliminating defects, achieving perfect first pass quality
  • eliminating all non-value adding activities
  • continuous improvement (kaizen)
  • using pull systems of production (eg. kanban)
  • flexibility, ability for quick changeovers and immediate response to changes in demand
  • long term relationships with suppliers involving strong and open communication

Terms used in Lean Production include:

5S
Andons
Cycle Time
