Need of Lean Six Sigma in Indian Manufacturing Industries

Authors(3) :-Naveen Virmani, Siddharth Singh, Md. Mahmeen

Improving the quality of the product and reducing the defect have become the pre-requirement for the industries to survive in the market. Lean system tries to reduce the all the activities which do not add value to the product and six sigma tries to reduce the defects to minimum possible level. Lean six sigma is hybrid system of both lean and six sigma; the purpose of which is to reduce the cost and defect so that industries can harness more and more profits.
