    I used to be an ACE deployement manager since 2005 and have been able to record significant business results, as a result.
    ACE is a Pratt version of Six Sigma and I was wondering if anyone had made some analysis comparing the pros and cons of ACE versus Six Sigma or other Improvement initiatives.


    can you post some links to this as I’d like to check.Hopefully this is not the British slang version of the word Pratt.Regards,Adam


    Thank you Adam, for your reply.
    The word Pratt refers to Pratt  & Whitney – The American and Canadian company known for Aircraft Engine manufacturing.


    I was interested in a comparison of ACE and Six Sigma as well.  I found the following thesis by an MIT business student:


    Hi Kurt,
    Very informative piece of information.
    Hope it would be possible to read the whole content of the thesis report.


    Dawit for posing this question and Kurt for finding this thesis. I think I have the correct order.
    A company I am preparing a strategic plan for is interested in adopting a Six Sigma approach however many manufacturing companies employ a Lean approach. Who would have known of ACE? Six Sigma may be less appropriate than a Lean approach but now there is the ACE approach to consider as well.
    There are many “lean” approaches out there and until researching the “Sikorsky Gold Standard” and its requirements, I would not have put 2 + 2 together. With all these acronyms, it is hard to keep it together.
    Thank you for shortening research time.
