About Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology for business process improvement which combines two established business improvement philosophies: Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma. Lean is a system for removing waste from the manufacturing process and ensuring the delivery of maximum value to the customer. Six Sigma focuses on process improvement by managing quality and reducing defects. Combining these two methods means businesses get the best of both worlds: the speed of Lean with the quality of Six Sigma.

Case Study

FMG Support, an independent fleet management services provider in the UK used Lean Six Sigma to improve their customer service and efficiency.

The company started their Lean Six Sigma implementation process by having their Business Improvement Manager trained to become a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt over the course of a year. One he had been trained, he was able to pass on the Lean Six Sigma skills he’d learnt to the rest of his team, instilling a continual process improvement culture throughout the whole company.

As a result of the analysis tools provided by Lean Six Sigma, FMG brought in new web-based solutions, speeding up their processes and delivering savings totalling £800,000 (over 1 million US dollars).

6 Six Sigma Success Stories

Lean and Six Sigma have been the go-to quality improvement methodologies since their inception. As they have evolved throughout the years, a wide range of companies has adopted them. This has led to a vast pool of applications for each methodology in a huge number of industries. With these applications plenty of brands have seen success, these are only a few.

BMW
In 2014, thirty high school students visited Upstate’s Health Care Simulation Center. At the center, they were taught various ways to hone their leadership and teamwork skills. They were also taught about Lean and Six Sigma as manufacturing concepts. Some of the ways they were taught how to cut out waste by firing catapults, launching toy cars and making paper helicopters. As each of their attempts succeeded, they knew they could do better so they kept finding ways to improve and refine each iteration.

Ford
Back at the turn of the century, Ford adopted Six Sigma after they noticed the success it brought Motorola and General Electric. With Six Sigma, they were able to save $300 million. This is helped by the fact that Ford doesn’t accept Six Sigma projects unless they fit certain criteria. This criteria is that all Six Sigma projects must be focused on customer satisfaction, the results must reduce defects by seventy percent and each project should average at $250,000.


Seegrid
Manufacturers had to frantically adopt some the Lean methodology during the Great Recession in 2008. Seegrid is one of those companies, but the way they adopted Lean Manufacturing principles is a particularly unique example: Seegrid developed robotic vision-guided trucks for material handling. Of course, this made quite a few jobs redundant but Seegrid saw this and gave plenty of their former employees’ jobs to compensate.

Eastman Kodak
Eastman Kodak faced plenty of challenges when implementing Lean and Six Sigma to the Kodak GSG manufacturing plant in Leeds. One of those challenges was to reduce their cycle flow time from one hundred days to just four days. After implementing these methodologies, Kodak saw a record two years without an accident, as well as a 15% rise in full-time equivalents joining the company.

LG
In 2001, LG Electronics India had sixty Six Sigma projects running in production, purchase and HR. One of these was a communication cost control project which slashed the phone bills from 1,300,000 rupees per month to 550,000 rupees per month.

DHL
DHL has implemented Six Sigma into their “First Choice” program. What this program entailed is that the customer helped shape the business by suggesting improvements. For example, a customer stated that their invoicing process had problems so DHL examined the process and made sure it was much smoother. It has been five years since DHL launched the first choice program and they have seen great success since.

Happy Customers

Tough but hugely enjoyable. Great trainer with years of industry experience. Completed the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course with Simon. Very intensive but we had a small group of two and Simon was able to relate coursework to our experience. I work as a contractor and self - financed. Its quite an investment but I expect it to repay itself within the year. Thanks again to Simon and special mention to Jim who took us through the green belt exam the week before.

A Lean Green fighting machine!! Attended a 5 day Lean Six Sigma training course to formalise my previous experiences and to add tools and practical examples of operating in a Lean Six Sigma environment. The trainer (Jim Gallagher) was able to bring the slides to life through real examples of Lean Six Sigma in action. It was a very open learning environment, which was conducive to good sharing of information and techniques.

I personally found the trainer’s style and delivery both motivating and engaging. I also enjoyed that the trainer was willing to share with the group their significant knowledge and experience to bring to life the theories and explain them on a practical level. I found this incredibly inspirational. I hope to do additional courses with the Knowledge Academy and will be seeking to progress with more training in 2012.
