LSS Intro

  1. 1. Lean Six Sigma Helpful Handouts
  2. 2. Lean Thinking Philosophy Current State Future State Solve Problems Expose Problems Identify and eliminate all activities that are waste (Muda). Focuses on optimal flow throughout the process. Customer focused. “ True North ” Value Added Time = Lead Time Full of Waste, Variation, and Constraints

  16. 16. LSS and CMMI are Complementary Improvement Initiatives Lean Six Sigma CMMI Lean Six Sigma focuses on designing the best processes to reach the desired end state Integration of these two organizational improvement initiatives is powerful! CMMI provides guidance for measuring, monitoring and managing processes Both are business strategies to deliver value to the customer and develop a sustainable competitive advantage
