Lean six sigma
Lean six sigma is a combination of lean manufacturing and six sigma management, its essence is to eliminate waste.Lean six west and management is the purpose of through the integration of lean manufacturing and six sigma management, absorb the advantage of the two kinds of production mode, and make up the lack of a single mode of production, achieve a better management effect.Lean six sigma is not simple addition of lean production and six sig, but complement each other, organic combination of both.
The management mode of basic concepts
According to the scope of solving the problem can, lean six sigma includes lean manufacturing and six sigma management.According to the complexity of the lean six sigma to solve specific problems and use tools, we put the divided into pure lean six sigma activity Profit improvement activities and lean six sigma project activities, including lean improvement activities all adopt the lean production theory and method, it solves the main is a simple question.Lean six sigma project activities mainly aimed at the complicated problem, need to lean manufacturing and six sigma philosophy, methods and tools.Traditional six sigma project is mainly to solve complex problems related to the variation, such as controlling a process a pass rate of products;And lean six sigma project to solve problems include not only traditional six sigma to solve problems, and to solve those related to variation, efficiency of "comprehensive" complex problems, such as not only a process to control the product at a time Pass rate, but also optimize the whole production process, simplify some action, shorten the production lead time, and simplify the movements are controlled and process variation has a direct link.
By implementing lean six sigma, the organization process can make a profit in the following areas:
Reduce the variation of the business process, improve the ability and stability of the process, improve the robustness of process or product;
Reduce the wip, reduce inventory, reduce cost;
Shorten the production rhythm, shorten production preparation time, accurate quickly understand customer requirements and response;
Improve the facilities layout, reduce production footprint, effective use of resources;
Improve customer satisfaction, increase market share.
