The industry-specific benefits of Lean Six Sigma


A new level of care

Healthcare professionals understand the importance of making the most of limited means. It’s not about working harder or faster; the most practical solution is to limit the amount of wasteful actions. Lean Six Sigma equips healthcare professionals with the tools and methods needed to emphasize customer-value adding actions and limit distractions. By using Lean Six Sigma, it becomes possible to streamline operations, optimize resource allocation, and standardize care procedures. Systematically addressing bottlenecks and inefficiencies has the added benefit of enhancing efficiency but also fosters patient safety, satisfaction, and well-being.

Lean Six Sigma helps caretakers align care delivery with individual needs, ensuring a tailored approach that ultimately elevates the quality of healthcare provided to a new level. Through Lean Six Sigma, healthcare workers are possess the means to alleviate work pressure and exceed patient expectations, not just once, but continuously.

When details matter most

The difference between a good product and a great product comes down to how well you control your processes. Not just on an employee or task level, but down to the most minute tweaks of substances, chemicals, composition, treatment time and more. Lean Six Sigma’s tools and methods, such as Minitab, Design of Experiment and the Measurement Systems Analysis bring a new level of control and certainty to professionals in manufacturing-related industries.

A significant benefit of standardization through Lean Six Sigma is that consequent improvements to a workflow or process help each individual perform better. The continuous improvement philosphy strives to do away with individual tweaks and preferences that in reality often lead to waste and confusion. A unified standard upon which new improvements are built according to data will bring a new level productivity.

No second chance for a first impression

The packaging industry plays a pivotal role in safeguarding products and influencing consumer perception. Implementing Lean Six Sigma principle in Packaging helps to enhances customer satisfaction and maintains product quality. By applying Lean Six Sigma to ensure adherence to the first-time-right principle, costs and cycle times can be reduced massively. It also ensures consistent packaging quality, meeting regulatory standards and customer expectations.

The methodology’s DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) framework aids in identifying bottlenecks and devising data-driven solutions. As e-commerce expands to new heights every year, the packaging industry must grow with it and embrace Lean Six Sigma to balance sustainability with functionality, meet market demands and minimizing environmental impact.

Our references

Since our foundation in 2002, we have organized many open registration training courses. We have trained more than 8.000 participants from all industries and have seen hundreds of practical assignments. These vary from multinationals to individuals in both the profit and non-profit sectors.

In addition to the open registrarions, we are also very proud of the fact that we have trained groups of students from the organizations listed below in-company.
