Lean Six Sigma : Combining Six Sigma Quality with Lean Production Speed Michael L. George
The Six Sigma methodology (DMAIC and DMADV) emphasizes on the fact that a business's quality and output can be improved by changing the process within the company to such a point that errors or mistakes within the processes are Then there is Lean. Lean A 5.0% (50000 DPM) error rate corresponds to 3.15 sigma performance and 1.0% error rate corresponds to 3.85 sigma. The Lean Six Sigma projects comprise the Lean's waste elimination projects and the Six Sigma projects based on the quality characteristics of a process. This somber panorama is moving Pharmas to evaluate the best ways to combine and manage themselves while urging external organizations to do the same in order to continue being competitive. Today both are combined to form lean and six-sigma. With pressure for quality and speed, a qualitative method to reduce waste and defects was required. To maximize their profits, Pharmas are scanning Lean and Six Sigma are powerful tools to improve quality, compliance, productivity, costs, and speed, allowing for the Pharma to provide better products in a cheaper and faster way. Lean Six Sigma consulting combines the quality improvements that come from using Six Sigma with the speed improvements that come from using Lean manufacturing principles . The first question I ask of people considering Lean Six Sigma is “do you produce a product or service where the consequences of slight variations would render your product or service useless, or dangerous to your end customer?” If the answer to this question is no, then the “Six Sigma” element of It is common to hear that Lean is all about speed, while Six Sigma is a driver of near perfect quality. The concepts of Lean and Six Sigma stems from the Motorola and Toyota manufacturing world of the late '70s. Lean is a process adopted to eliminate waste from a process, first practiced and then formalized into the Toyota Production System.
