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).

5 PHASES OF LEAN SIX SIGMA

THE DMAIC METHODOLOGY

Refers to a data-driven improvement cycle used for improving, optimising and stabilising business processes and designs. The DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control) improvement cycle is the core tool used to drive Six Sigma projects.
