Abstract :

Lean Six Sigma is a well-recognized continuous improvement methodology for achieving operational and service excellence in any organization. The purpose of this paper is to explain how Lean Six can be implemented in real practice resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars of actual savings (cost reduction and profit increase). This is demonstrated through three practical case studies on utilization of machines and labour, efficiency of production line and margin of sales process. All of these cases studies are real and they follow the structured approach of define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC). The approach and results of these case studies can be beneficial for managers and continuous improvement practitioners or engineers who can replicate the best practices and lessons learned from these case studies into their similar fields where it can be applicable.
