The U.S. Army Materiel Command has a website dedicated to information about the Lean Six Sigma efforts currently underway. There is even an entire page devoted to Lean Six Sigma project case studies and results. Over 20 success stories are shared including a video that highlights the ways Lean Six Sigma is directly impacting U.S. troops overseas. The video is about 5 minutes long and worth every minute.

One project at the Fort Knox Unit Maintenance Activity increased the number of M1 tanks serviced by 40 percent. The increased throughput allowed the team annihilate the service backlog (from 85 tanks to zero in only 6 months). Another Lean Six Sigma project ensures that HMMWV armor plated door kits are shipped mistake-free.
