Lean seeks to eliminate all forms of activity that do not add value. This can take many forms such as:

  • Overproduction
  • Excess inventory
  • Generation of defects
  • Non value added processing steps
  • Waiting
  • Human Factors
  • Transportation

Lean is a way of engaging the entire Organisation toward identifying and eliminating waste. It focuses on using pull systems to use only the amount of input factors essential to the generation of value added activity. Many tools exist to help with the implementation of lean approaches, including Kanban, 5Ss, Poka-Yoke, Kaizen, TOC, etc.

Six Sigma is an approach that focuses on the reduction of variation and waste. It seeks to eliminate the causes of defects thereby achieving a competitive advantage for the organisation. Six Sigma uses a cycle called DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control).

It is a well proven approach that has achieved considerable bottom line benefits for Companies that have successfully implemented it.
