Lean six sigma - commonly known as Six Lean - is a hybrid of lean manufacturing principles and six sigma principles. Both concepts are complementary to one another in many ways.
For lean six sigma principles to be properly applied to business systems and processes, the following characteristics must be accounted for:
Six lean methods require that processes are performed as quickly as possible, while simultaneously minimizing variation between systems and products as much as possible.
Lean six sigma is dependent on process flow analyses and using the data obtained from the activities in a process to make informed decisions.
For lean six sigma to work properly, processes must be evaluated from a value-added vs. non-value-added viewpoint. Value added activities are coveted in six lean processes.
Minimization, and ultimately elimination, of defects within a process flow, is one of the main goals of six lean.
Total Quality Management, or TQM was the foundation for the advent of six lean.
