COURSE OVERVIEW This course explains how the approaches of Lean and Six Sigma can be combined into one seamless Business Improvement Methodology to provide an improvement model that concentrates on both reducing cycle time and variability. Lean tools are linked to the robust DMAIC problem-solving approach, and focus on analysing processes, customer demand, and product flow - producing fast and visual process improvements. Six Sigma techniques are applied throughout the improvement process to provide robust data analysis, measurement and creative solutions required to reduce complex variability in product and processes.
