Lean Six Sigma (LSS)

Lean Six Sigma is an industry best practice that combines the waste fighting aspects of Lean, the quality focus of Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints to achieve maximum results. As government agencies and commercial enterprises transform into efficient and agile organizations, LSS provides the methodology to achieve continuous process improvement across a full spectrum of processes including manufacturing, maintenance, administrative, and support services. LSS is a proven methodology to reduce costs and time cycles, increase productivity and quality, and eliminate process waste. Budget savings are critical in an austere operating environment with limited resources, and LSS provides the key to unlocking additional resources through process efficiency and effectiveness.  The process for process improvement is broken down into the five step DMAIC process: Define the process, Measure the process, Analyze the process, Improve the process and Control the improved process.
