•Introduction•Six Sigma The aim of Six Sigma isto reduce/control variation throughstatistical methods that lower process defect rates to less than 3.4 DPMO. •Lean Lean is a series of toolsand techniques tomanage our organization’sprocesses. Specifically, Lean focuses on eliminating all non-value-addedactivities and waste from processes.•Whatis Lean Six Sigma•Lean Six Sigma• Lean Six Sigma is amanagerial approach that combines Six Sigma methods and tools and the lean manufacturing philosophy, striving to eliminate waste, whileassuring quality in production and organizational processes. From all these definitions we decodeLean Six Sigma is a quality programthat, when all is said and done, improves your customer’s experience, lowersyour costs, and builds better leaders•Lean•Wastes•Transportation – Unnecessary movement of Products.
•Inventory – Unnecessary storage of Products.•Motion– Unnecessary movement of Men and Data.•Waitingtime – Product Waiting for any process.•Overproduction – Producing large number of Productsand keeping it in warehouse.•Overprocessing – Processes those do not add value tothe quality (NVA)•Defects – Incorrect work that must be donecorrectly to achieve quality ••How Six Sigma deals with variation• How Six Sigma deals with Defects• ASix Sigma process produces 3.4 DPMO that means literally no defects.
•Integration of Lean and Six Sigma•Theeffectiveness of two techniques, Six Sigma and Lean production has beencombined into LSS. •LeanSix Sigma changes the way the company thinks• Lean manufacturing -increases the speed of process – removeswaste•SixSigma – controls Variation – Quality demand is achieved.•••Status quo of Indian SME’s1.Never heard of Lean SixSigma.
2.LeanSix Sigma is nothing new, just like TotalQuality Management.3.Nothaving time for a Lean Six Sigmaprogram.4.Costsof implementing aLean Six Sigma program.5.
We’retoo small. LSS is forlarge companies.6.
LeanSix Sigma involves alot of statistics and advanced mathematics. Most of our employees arefront-line operators — not engineers.7.Fearof the unknown or failure8.
We’renot a manufacturer.•How Lean Six sigma benefited Companies•Some of the Industry samples•Ford Motor Company Six Sigma enabled FordMotors to eliminate more than $2.19 billion in waste over the last decade andhalf.•Result of LSS•Profitis a function of costs minimization and sale volume and this can be expressedas equation below: P=f (CM+SV)••Conclusion•Industrysector being the second biggest contributor to the GDP it is essential to applyLean Six Sigma and it can be applied to services like Hospitals, Airports.
•Differentorganizations have different maturity levels of QM implementation and theirexisting QM systems vary.•Beyondany doubt LSS is far more than other Traditional Quality Management Techniques.
