SQPS Ltd. has successfully implemented 5S, A3, and Lean Six Sigma programs across many diverse industries.
Lean Six Sigma
Lean Six Sigma focuses on reducing waste and standardizing processes across ogranizations. This approach uses careful measurement and statistical analysis to understand which areas companies needs to focus their efforts to reach their goals.
Lean Six Sigma relies on the DMAIC Cycle which is used to fix problems with existing processes. The five stages of the DMAIC process are:
- Define the opportunity
- Measure the baseline performance
- Analyse the root causes
- Improve the process
- Control the improved process to prevent regression
The 5S methodology creates a culture that establishes, improves, and supports a productive work environment. Among other benefits, the 5S Program offers continuous improvement of workplace safety, productivity and employee satisfaction.
The 5s Program in Lean Six Sigma represents the following areas:
- Systematize (or Set in Order)
- Sweep (or Shine)
The A3 Program offers companies an organized system for understanding opportunities for improvement in the workplace. The program focuses on continual improvement, timeliness, efficiency and other quality-related benefits.
The development of an A3 Program will produce a culture of improvement and change, which is at the very core of the system. When implemented correctly, the A3 Program will assist companies to flourish in their fields.
The A3 Program represents the following areas:
- Logical Thinking
- Organization of Information
- Focus on Critical Information
- Align Effort with Strategy / Goals
- Consistency across Organization
- Problem Solving
