About Lean Six Sigma (LSS)

Lean Six Sigma is a framework used to enhance the management approach to business performance improvement, combining the frameworks of Lean and Six Sigma. Both business improvement philosophies will help improve processes, diminish costs, which will develop quality within the organisation. Lean methodology is a system for removing waste from the manufacturing process, therefore ensuring the delivery of maximum value to the customer.

Lean Six Sigma Model

Economic growth causes businesses from all industries to adopt the Lean Six Sigma Methodology and model, this is because as new products and services cause economic growth organisations are always looking to be better than their competitors. By adopting this methodology,  organisations are in a better position for growth and improvements, whilst staying ahead of their competitors.

DMADV

DMADV is the methodology that is used for existing products and services or used a new product and services completely. However this method can use existing products and services, DMADV primarily focuses on the development of new products and services as opposed to improving on a previously existing one. This is because DMADV prompts the early identification of every aspect of the product or service of creating a new product or service through analysis.

Lean Six Sigma DMADV Method

  • Define - State the problem and find the purpose of the project, then identify the customer needs which will set the goals and outline the target process.
  • Measure - Defining the requirements and identifying the parameters of the project. Organisations will have worked out the best way to measure this will provide the necessary data. It is important to regulate which metrics are critical and to interpret the customer requirements into clear goals.
  • Analyse - Identify performance goals and determine how process inputs are likely to affect process outputs
  • Design - Work out specifics whilst enhancing the approaches is critical in this process. Also, must have design authentication, which identifies designs that are significant and then a high-level design will be developed.
  • Verify - This is the final phase, the design will be tested and accepted by everyone. This is important as it will identify if the design had been set up appropriately, the design will have to pass routine trails in order to begin work on manufacturing or sales.

Happy Customers

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.
