A potent combination of legendary cost-reduction and quality systems!

If lean manufacturing moves your products through processes faster, and Six Sigma improves their quality, just imagine what combining these two powerful disciplines will do for you! Lean Six Sigma That Works provides the key to transforming your results in any manufacturing environment, giving you detailed, practical processes that let you leave the conference room, and get right to work.

A strong and sensible combination of the “why” and the “how,” this book gives you a step-by-step improvement plan, plus a thorough understanding of:

• cost, cash flow, materials velocity, lead time, balance, waste, and non-value-added processes

• and much more
