Toyota is a Six Sigma company. Toyota:

  • has Profound Knowledge of every process in the company,
  • competes by maximizing Operational Excellence,
  • 10 of 15 cars held for 15 years by the original owner were Toyota’s,
  • Decreases Supplier cost year over year

Lean Six Sigma is part of the Toyota Production System (TPS) but, TPS is so much more than Lean Six Sigma. TPS is a complete system that engulfs the company, its suppliers, and its customers. You can approach TPS utilizing Lean Six Sigma but alone, it will not get you all the way there.

  1. Determine and Publicize Roles and Responsibilities for ALL employees
  2. Define Value – what adds value to the customer and what doesn’t
  3. Map the Value Stream – this gives you a view from customer order to delivery
  4. Flow Where You Can, Pull Where You Must -Flow is the goal. It means that product travels from station to station without hesitation. Pull is driven from a customer order and replaces Push which is much less efficient.
  5. Perfection or Continuous Improvement – now that you are optimized, use Improvement Kata to continuously improve by averaging 132 ideas per person per year.
