Enhancing the productivity of processes, lowering of costs of production and improving the quality of the end product/service make Lean Six Sigma important to businesses.
To achieve Yellow Belt in Lean Six Sigma, consider participating in Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification Training offered by pdtraining in Auckland and other cities in New Zealand.
Companies, including Ford, Motorola, IBM, Whirlpool, Kodak and GE, have adopted Lean Six Sigma because of the various benefits it provides. Lean Six Sigma combines the two methodologies of Lean and Six Sigma.
Lean focuses on waste reduction while Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of processes. Both these methodologies complement each other and lead to better working processes and reduced costs of production. This, in turn, leads to improvement in the quality of the end product/service while reducing costs of manufacturing.
Identification and Elimination of Defects Leading to Waste
Both Lean and Six Sigma eliminate waste using different methods. Six Sigma identifies and eliminates defects in processes to improve its productivity. Lean targets areas of waste such as waste in transport, over-processing, unnecessary motion of people, etc. to reduce costs of production.
Lean Six Sigma eliminates defects from their root so that their reoccurrence does not take place. Continuous and early detection of errors lead to the maintenance of the high productivity levels of processes and the quality of the end product/service.
This quality of Lean Six Sigma had made companies worldwide to embrace it. The implementation of Lean Six Sigma helps businesses to produce at lower costs while providing the customers with better quality products/services. In a highly competitive environment, it helps companies to stay on top of competition.
Lean Six Sigma drastically reduces costs of manufacturing by bringing down the number of defects in processes. Six Sigma improvement projects achieve higher productivity in processes by detecting and removing defects. It uses methods such as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Identify, and Control) to improve processes and to keep them working at their optimum level.
Lean, on the other hand, brings down the cost of production by targeting areas of waste in overproduction, transport, motion of people, waiting time, inventory/stock, waste of talent, over-processing, and defects. Both Lean and Six Sigma together substantially brings down the cost of production through the timely detection and elimination of waste.
Improvement and Stability
Achieving improvement does not yield maximum results if the improvement does not stay. Lean Six Sigma continually controls, analyses and fixes defects in processes to ensure that the improvement achieved remains. The continuous improvement achieved provides companies stability, and allows them to plan and implement other strategies successfully.
From process productivity to customer satisfaction and quality control, Lean Six Sigma transforms the way businesses work. By making processes work at their optimum level at all times and eliminating waste at the same time, Lean Six Sigma provides companies with means to increase sales, expand their market, enhance customer satisfaction, lower costs of production, and grow consistently. Due to its many important benefits, Lean Six Sigma has been adopted all over the world.
