Six Sigma / Lean Enterprise

Six Sigma at many organizations simply means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving toward six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process -- from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.
Six Sigma

The statistical representation of Six Sigma describes quantitatively how a process is performing. To achieve Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. A Six Sigma defect is defined as anything outside of customer specifications. A Six Sigma opportunity is then the total quantity of chances for a defect. Process sigma can easily be calculated using a Six Sigma calculator.

Six Sigma methodology has defined following types of six sigma training, certification and consultancy.

  • Six Sigma Green Belt
  • Six Sigma Black Belt
  • Master Black Belt
  • Six Sigma Yellow Belt
  • Lean Six Sigma
  • DFSS Six Sigma

DMAIC and DMADV

DMAIC and DMADV

The fundamental objective of the Six Sigma methodology is the implementation of a measurement-based strategy that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction through the application of Six Sigma Improvement Projects. This is accomplished through the use of two Six Sigma sub-methodologies: DMAIC and DMADV. The Six Sigma DMAIC process (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) is an improvement system for existing processes falling below specification and looking for incremental improvement. The Six Sigma DMADV process (define, measure, analyze, design, verify) is an improvement system used to develop new processes or products at Six Sigma quality levels. It can also be employed if a current process requires more than just incremental improvement. Both Six Sigma processes are executed by Six Sigma Green Belts and Six Sigma Black Belts, and are overseen by Six Sigma Master Black Belts.

According to the Six Sigma Academy, Black Belts save companies approximately $230,000 per project and can complete four to 6 projects per year. General Electric, one of the most successful companies implementing Six Sigma, has estimated benefits on the order of $10 billion during the first five years of implementation. GE first began Six Sigma in 1995 after Motorola and Allied Signal blazed the Six Sigma trail. Since then, thousands of companies around the world have discovered the far reaching benefits of Six Sigma.

Lean Enterprise

Whether you are a manufacturer, distributor, healthcare organization, or a government agency, the goal for each of us is to be more efficient and eliminate waste wherever it occurs. Continuous improvement is the answer. So how do you implement and sustain continuous improvement in a systematic manner that will take hold and become part of your organization's culture? One answer is through the use of Lean Enterprise.

Lean is a combination of concepts and tools that have been in existence for more than forty years. Many of the concepts used date back to the early 1900's. The approach used to implement and maintain a Lean Enterprise creates culture and drives at the very heart of most organizational problems. Lean is the systematic identification and elimination of waste through continuous improvement in pursuit of perfection.

Principles of Lean

The five-step thought process for guiding the implementation of lean techniques is easy to remember, but not always easy to achieve:

  • Specify value from the standpoint of the end customer by product family.
  • Identify all the steps in the value stream for each product family, eliminating whenever possible those steps that do not create value.
  • Make the value-creating steps occur in tight sequence so the product will flow smoothly toward the customer.
  • As flow is introduced, let customers pull value from the next upstream activity.
  • As value is specified, value streams are identified, wasted steps are removed, and flow and pull are introduced, begin the process again and continue it until a state of perfection is reached in which perfect value is created with no waste.

We at “CESIUM Ltd.” provides you complete solutions for implementation of “Lean Management” system into your organization and converting your company into lean enterprise. Consequently, reducing waste and increasing profits.
