6 SIGMA VS. KAIZEN/LEAN Manufacturing Systems Analysis
2 Comparative Analysis Improvement Methodologies Similar in Structure Improvements measured against established process Team oriented Similar improvement tools Measure effectiveness of improvements Maintain new performance level Standardize & Proceduralize Results More Efficient Processes Comparison Both are Effective Improvement Mechanisms CPI/6s best applied to large complex problems Kaizen/Lean best applied to achieve incremental changes and eliminate wastes. Measure - Data Collection - Determine Process Potential / Goals Evaluate - Root Cause / Vital Few - Statistical Analysis Improve & Verify - Implement Improvement - Validate Improvement Standardize - Standardize / Leverage - SPC - Update Procedures Evaluate - Baseline Process Performance - Establish Target Decide -Compare solutions - Choose Act -Communicate - Implement improvement - Control Measure - Validate improvement - Standardize - Update Procedures Focus - Reduce Process Variation - Identify Critical Cause and Focus Resources for Maximum Impact Focus - Eliminate Waste 5S - Seek Incremental Process Changes Kaizen/Lean 6 Summary - Technical Approach based on Statistical Analysis - Requires Significant Data Collection - Best applied to Manufacturing Processes - Typical Projects 1-3 Months Summary - Common Sense Approach based on Observation - Applicable to all types of processes - Defined improvement strategy - Typical Projects 1 week
3 What is 5S ? An essential step required for Waste Elimination An integral step in Kaizen A required element to implementing Lean Manufacturing. Systematic Organization “Seiri” Orderliness “Seiton” Cleanliness “Seiso” Cleanup “Seiketsu” Cleanup “Seiketsu” Standardization/Perseverance “Shitsuke”
