LEAN SIX SIGMA TOOLS
WHAT IS LEAN SIX SIGMA?
Lean Six Sigma is a powerful integrated methodology that harnesses the strength of both Lean and Six Sigma. The Business Improvement community has seen the benefits of using these two methods simultaneously. Lean focuses on the reduction of waste and how defects inhibit flow and create waste. Six Sigma focuses on reducing variation as waste can increase variation and result in higher defects. This has led to the combination of lean principles into the Six Sigma methodology, now termed Lean Six Sigma (LSS).
