...a methodology and tools used globally by world-class companies, through a multi-year plan to mature and optimize any operational, productive and/or administrative process, applicable to any industry, aimed at satisfying customers and that has high acceptance for providing tangible and demonstrable savings and financial benefits, which are derived from improving the quality and speed of operations.

Six Sigma & Lean

SIX SIGMA

Six Sigma speaks the language of business (measuring of value throughout the project), and its philosophy is to improve customer satisfaction by eliminating and preventing defects and, as a result, increasing the profitability of the business. The purpose of Six Sigma is to achieve better commercial and quality performance and provide better profits by addressing serious business problems that may have existed for a long time. The driving force behind the approach is for organizations to be competitive and eliminate errors and waste.

 

There is little new in Six Sigma from the point of view of the tools and techniques used. The method uses statistical tools, among others, and therefore deals with uncertain events to provide decisions based on uncertainty.

Another difference is the infrastructure that Six Sigma uses. The creation of roles and the responsibilities that accompany them give the method a solid infrastructure. The demand that all projects require an adequate business case, the common way in which all projects are examined, the clearly defined methodology (DMAIC) that all projects follow, provides additional elements of the infrastructure.

Six Sigma is a disciplined process. It helps us focus on developing and delivering near-perfect products and services. The central idea behind Six Sigma is if you can measure how many “defects” you have in a process, you can systematically determine how to eliminate them and get close to having almost ZERO DEFECTS.


Six Sigma has changed General Electric's DNA — It's the way we work, in everything we do and in every product we design.

LEAN MANAGEMENT

Lean management consists of the systematic and habitual application of a set of operating techniques that seek to improve production processes through the reduction of all types of “waste”, defined as the processes or activities that use the most resources. those strictly necessary. The key to the model is to generate a new culture aimed at finding a way to apply improvements in every operation of the value chain and support it, both at the level of the job and the manufacturing line, and all of this in contact directly with the existing problems for which full collaboration and communication between managers, managers and operators is considered essential. Lean management has its origins in the Just in Time (JIT) production system developed around 1950 by Toyota. With the extension of the system to other sectors and countries, a model has been configured that has become the paradigm of productivity improvement systems associated with operational excellence.
