Topic Background:

Lean Six Sigma relies as a methodology on a collaborative team effort in order to improve on performance by analytically removing waste. This methodology combines lean enterprise/lean manufacturing and six sigma as an effective way of eliminating the eight types of waste: Time, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Over Production, Over Processing, Defects and Skills, which is abbreviated to ‘TIMWOODS’.

The concepts of Lean Six Sigma were originally published in a book called Lean Six Sigma: Combining Six Sigma in 2002 by Michael George and Robert Lawrence Jr. Lean Six Sigma uses DMAIC phases in a similar way to that of Six Sigma. It combines Lean’s waste elimination aspects and also Six Sigma’s aspects on reducing defects, as well as its belt-based training system.
