What does it mean to be Lean Six Sigma? [infographic]

The purpose of Lean is to deliver value to customers by removing all waste, overburden and variation from processes.   The first step is to create a Lean culture . . . and then continuously improve processes to exceed customer expectations. A true lean culture is when the first question is always why (purpose) and then what (action) so problems are solved by everyone (people).

Included in the process of developing a lean culture, you will include a Gemba Walk through the plant or warehouse and identify the seven deadly wastes:

  1. Defects
  2. Inventory
  3. Processing
  4. Motion
  5. Overproduction
  6. Waiting
  7. Conveyance

There are many benefits of adopting Lean Six Sigma for a business, particularly in the areas of productivity and profitability. Eliminating wasteful practices and overly complicated processes help a business operate economically. Eradicating excess inventory, overproduction and transportation processes can help a company save money and time.

To better understand what it means to transform to a Lean Six Sigma culture, review the infographic from Jabil:
