Lean Six Sigma:

Method: Set operation to order using 5S and visual factory; identify where in the material and information flows waste exist and eliminate it.

Measures: Operational costs.

Industry: Manufacturing

DMAIC Six Sigma:

: Reduction of variation in all processes of the operation

Method: Search for differences in performance between groups, within groups, and over time to identify primary contributions of variation; develop additional understanding of multivariate causes by studying relationships between process inputs and outputs; put controls in place to minimize the contribution of input variation on output variation.

Measures: Variance, standard deviation, Process Capability (Cp and Cpk), sigma value, operational costs.

Industry: Process environments
