What Lean is NOT - 

Getting colleagues to work faster and faster

Blindly implementing a set of improvement tools

Only of value in high volume processes

Having a ‘tidy-up’

Incompatible with other improvement methodologies (e.g. Six Sigma).

What is Six Sigma?

6 Sigma manufacturing philosophy came from Motorola

  They recognised that sufficient process improvement would not occur using a conventional approach to quality. It was developed to help them reduce variation within a process by focusing effort on improving inputs to a process rather than reacting to outputs. (Standardised Inputs = Standardised Outputs)

The process was failing the customer expectations

Traditionally, processes aimed for process capability of 3 to 4 sigma (93% to 99.3% acceptable)

The customer received 6200 defective product per million at best

Processes now aim for 6 sigma

The customer would receive 3.4 defective products per million
