Lean Manufacturing / Six Sigma Jobs

A defined improvement procedure is a crucial consideration for any company looking to obtain a competitive advantage with their products, services and/or processes. This is referred to as a continuous improvement process and it is an ongoing effort. There are a number of different tools and techniques used to achieve continuous improvement, including Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing.

Lean Six Sigma combines key methods from both Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma to form a key business management strategy. Each continuous improvement project implemented has defined financial expectations on how it will impact the business (i.e. reduce waste and therefore increase profitability). To achieve its goals, the project will follow a defined sequence of steps which are consistent across all projects.
