What is LEAN?

LEAN is a proven methodology mindset that is focused on the elimination of waste and continuous improvement in a business process. This waste consists of non value added activites that increase YOUR operating costs. LEAN started out in the manufacturing industry and has worked it's way into the service sector in recent decades.

There are 8 wastes:

  1. Waiting
  2. Transportation
  3. Inventory
  4. Motion
  5. Over-Production
  6. Over-Processing
  7. Defects/Errors
  8. Under-Utilization of Talent

The tools we use for eliminating these wastes:

  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Process Mapping
  • 5 Whys
  • Fishbone Diagrams
  • Load Balancing
  • Mistake Proofing
  • 5S
  • Standard Work
  • Pull Systems
  • SMED

What is SIX SIGMA?

Six Sigma is all about quality and reducing variability in a business process by using statistics. There is natural variability in all systems and processes. This natural variability, when not controlled, can be the cause of poor quality in the eyes of your customer. This variability in processes has many forms such as the quality of work between two employees.

You cannot get rid of the variability completely. Anyone who tells you they can doesn't know what they are talking about. We can reduce the variability in a business process such that the probability of having a poor quality product or service is close to negligible.

Risk Management

LEAN and SIX SIGMA are primarily classified as continuous improvement tools. However, they are also classified as risk management tools. There are three parts to risk management, they are risk identification, risk assessment, and risk mitigation. LEAN and SIX SIGMA fall under the risk mitigation. For example, you use SIX SIGMA to reduce the probability or risk of your customer getting a bad product or service. We can implement and train you to use risk management tools to further benefit your organization.

We have experience implementing the following tools:

  • Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
  • Event Tree Analysis (ETA)
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)
  • Fishbone Diagrams

These are proven tools that helped organizations of all sizes manage risk and avoid costly mistakes.
