Lean Six Sigma Training in Hawaii is a business philosophy focusing on breakthrough improvement and incorporates Lean philosophies with the Six Sigma methodology. Lean Six Sigma focuses on improving efficiency and reducing variability in all types of business processes. In a production or service environment, a Lean Six Sigma process would be highly predictable and virtually defect/error free. This means that out of one million products produced or services provided, a process operating at a Six Sigma level would result in only 3.4 defects with minimal time and other resources to process these orders.
This level of performance is a tremendous improvement over where most organizations currently operate at a three sigma-level, which results in more than 66,000 defects/errors per million opportunities and where 80%-90% of the process does not add value to the product/service from the customer’s perspective. The Lean Six Sigma methodology utilizes the DMAIC approach: Define the problem Measure the process performance Analyze the cause of the problem Improve the process Control the improved process and fix the problem permanently Lean Six Sigma Green and Black Belts are among the most sought after professionals today.
