Discover where the Lean comes from and the other methods, the founding concepts (MUDA, PDCA ...) and especially the state of mind of Lean.
Basis of Lean, Heijunka (translated as "leveling"), reduces variability and boosting effect to control production. p>
Translated by " Continuous Improvement ", this foundation includes all elements of TPM (Maintenance Improvement), TQM (Quality Improvement) and Problem Solving (8D, QRQC, Shainin, Kepner Tregoe ...)
As a starting point for improvement, the standard is the basic tool for problem solving and management. You will find all the tools of the post office (5S ...), ergonomics or the measurement of working time.
Pillar of Lean, the Just A Time group of methods and tools (Kanban, SMED ...) to produce the right needed, at the right time and quality expected.
We have also included the methods and tools of Theory of Constraint.
The Jidoka is the other pillar of the Lean house with Just In Time. Cultural tool par excellence, it aims to stop the actions from the appearance of a problem to solve it immediately. There are tools like the Poka Yoké or the Andon system.
In a world always looking for something new, innovation is at the heart of development strategies. Discover the methods and tools of Lean Six Sigma to achieve this.
At the heart of the house, Lean Six Sigma Management. You find all the elements to organize and deploy the approach, the management techniques as well as the techniques and advice to drive the change.
We also include World Class Manufacturing methodologies and the precepts of Agile Management.
6 Sigma is a methodology for statistical analysis of data created in the 1980s by Motorola. 6 Sigma is a suite of statistical tools used to reduce process variation.
As the first step of DMAIC, the Define phase aims to launch the 6 Sigma project under the best possible conditions.
The Measure phase is a precise and costed measurement of the current situation. It consists of a set of tools, allowing a pragmatic measure of our subject of study.
The Analysis phase consists of looking for the root causes of the problem. It uses statistical tools such as regressions, hypothesis tests ...
Once the root cause(s) identified in the Analysis phase, actions must be implemented to resolve it. For this, we find a whole range of tools to identify and test the solution.
Last phase of the DMAIC, it is very close to the Act of the PDCA: to perpetuate the improvements and to follow the evolutions.
