Army Nears $2 Billion in Lean Six Sigma Savings

From Army recruiting to the Bradley fighting vehicle (and everything in between -including meal scheduling), the US Army continues to improve processes and save dollars through Lean Six Sigma.

“Lean Six Sigma techniques implemented throughout the Army continue to prove successful, and leaders anticipate reaching a $2 billion-savings mark this year.”

Yesterday’s article on showcases several of the Army Lean Six Sigma projects that Green Belts and Black Belts have been working on:

  • More efficient meal scheduling
  • Streamlining the communication process across the chain of command through lieutenant generals
  • Army recruiting process reduced from 32 steps to 11 steps
  • Reduction in clothing outlet inventory

    Was this real savings or was the money wasted elsewhere?
    Too often projects are claiming savings based on unbudgeted avoided costs. In other words bogus savings. How much of the $2B was returned to the taxpayers?
