EQUIBT's experienced advisors draw upon a range of proven problem solving and continuous improvement tools, combined with the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.
Lean encompasses both a philosophy and a series of tools and techniques designed to identify and eliminate waste from business processes, resulting in faster, slicker processes which enhance customer satisfaction and reduce cost. The focus is on creating increased value for customers with fewer resources.
Six Sigma is a structured methodology for identifying and removing the causes of defects and minimising the variation that leads to errors in any business process. Data and statistical analysis are used to measure and improve operational performance.
Lean Six Sigma
There are proven benefits of combining the tools of the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies to solve business issues where improvements in both waste reduction and error reduction are required.
Structured Design Methodologies
Improvement methodology tools are applied in the design or re-design of products or services:
- Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)
The Six Sigma tools are used to develop products or services with very low defect levels, thereby meeting customers' needs more consistently and profitably.
- Lean Design
Applying the philosophy of Lean, with its focus on eliminating waste, competitively-priced products can be designed that meet customers' needs with the minimum of cost and resources and with the fastest time to market.
- Structured Innovation Techniques
Applying a structured methodology to the creative processes of innovation enables new opportunities to be uncovered and rapidly developed into commercial products or processes.
The culture of an organisation supports or undermines changes to differing degrees. Adopting a structured approach to involving the people affected by change can greatly improve the success of any transition.
