Increase efficiency, lower costs, and reduce waste with our lean six sigma consulting services

In a rapidly changing marketplace, success demands efficiency, quality, and a relentless focus on the customer. That’s where Lean Six Sigma comes in.

This powerful methodology combines the waste-reducing principles of Lean with the rigorous quality focus of Six Sigma, delivering remarkable improvements in operational efficiency, quality, and customer satisfaction.

Does your organization suffer from these problems?

In fact, a growing number of organizations are grappling with recurring and growing issues due to the constantly changing environment. The most common problems are:

Inefficient inventory management

Too many wasted resources

Low employee engagement

Lack of customer satisfaction

Decreasing profitability

Our Lean Consulting Solutions

We bring a full range of capabilities to help you reduce waste, deliver culture transformations, and increase profitability.

  • Analyze current operations to identify waste and non-value-adding activities.
  • Implement standardized procedures to ensure consistency and reduce variability in processes.
  • Use Lean tools like Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to visualize and improve the flow of work.
  • Optimize operations to increase throughput without additional resources.
  • Regularly review and update capacity planning based on demand forecasts.

  • Conduct a detailed cost analysis to identify areas of waste and potential savings.
  • Introduce Lean techniques such as Just-In-Time (JIT) to reduce inventory costs and eliminate waste.
  • Implement process improvements to reduce defects and rework, thus lowering operational costs.

  • Identify and eliminate environmental waste in processes, such as excess energy use or material waste.
  • Implement sustainable practices, such as recycling or energy-efficient equipment.
  • Continually monitor and improve environmental performance as part of the Lean approach.

  • Understand customer needs and expectations and align processes to meet these needs.
  • Implement systems to capture and analyze customer feedback for continuous improvement.
  • Regularly review and update processes to ensure they continue to deliver high value to customers.

  • Utilize root cause analysis to identify the source of defects and implement corrective measures.
  • Introduce a culture of “do it right the first time” to reduce the need for rework.
  • Implement regular quality audits to ensure adherence to standards and continuous quality improvement.

  • Analyze and improve process flows to reduce bottlenecks and delays.
  • Implement Lean tools to manage workflow and reduce lead times.
  • Monitor and continually optimize process performance to ensure prompt delivery.

KAIZEN™ Lean Six Sigma Tools

A visual tool used to map the flow of materials and information through a process from start to finish. It helps to identify value-added and non-value-added activities, sources of waste, and opportunities for improvement.

A systematic approach to workplace organization. It’s designed to reduce waste, improve efficiency, and create a safer, more productive work environment.

A visual scheduling system for lean and just-in-time production. It signals the need for inventory replenishment in the production process and helps to manage workflow and minimize inventory.

Gemba is a Japanese term meaning “the real place.” In business, it refers to the place where value is created, such as the shop floor in manufacturing. A Gemba Walk involves managers going to the Gemba to observe processes, ask questions, and learn.

Kaizen is a philosophy of continuous improvement. It involves making small, incremental changes to processes to improve efficiency and quality.

These are mechanisms or techniques implemented to prevent errors or defects from occurring in a process. They aim to make it impossible for mistakes to happen.

This is a detailed and documented process for each operation that specifies the best and most reliable method to perform a task. It promotes consistency, efficiency, and quality.

A production scheduling technique that aims to smooth out the production volume and mix of products to reduce variability and waste.

Refers to adding a human touch to automation where machines are designed to detect and stop abnormalities automatically, thus ensuring quality at the source.

It is the maximum amount of time in which a product needs to be produced in order to meet customer demand. It’s used to match the pace of production to the pace of sales.

Our Approach

The Lean approach begins with an end-to-end analysis. This analysis leads to a customized solution design and implementation plan. The contribution of the teams is critical to the success of any Lean journey. We organize our customers’ teams to break functional silos and develop continuous improvement skills.

More about Lean six sigma

People and gear Icon What is lean six sigma?

What is lean six sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that combines Lean and Six Sigma principles to enhance performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation. Lean focuses on eliminating non-value-adding processes (waste), while Six Sigma seeks to reduce process variation, thereby improving consistency and quality. The result is a powerful approach that drives operational excellence, increasing efficiency, improving quality, and boosting customer satisfaction.

What are the lean six sigma belts?

Lean Six Sigma uses a martial arts-inspired “belt” system to denote levels of certification and expertise. Starting from the Yellow Belt, indicating a deep understanding of specific aspects of Lean Six Sigma and often being part of a larger project team. Then comes the Green Belt, indicating individuals who manage Lean Six Sigma projects and are trained in the more detailed aspects of the methodology. Lastly, Black Belts are project leaders with a deep understanding of Lean Six Sigma, and they often mentor Green Belts. Each belt level signifies a different level of training, responsibility, and proficiency.
