Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation. It combines lean manufacturing/lean enterprise and Six Sigma to eliminate the eight kinds of waste (muda):

  • Transporting
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waste
  • Over-Processing
  • Over-Production
  • Defects
  • Skills (un-utilisation skills of employees)
