  • I don’t this it was completely pointless. In fact I am glad you posted. I have been trying to get in touch with someone who trained in LSS because my company used to think highly of it until a new leader came in place.

    Thanks Bob
    Yes that does help.  I’ve heard that when you have good and bad parts use Shainin.  If its more of a process flow like you mentioned or a transactional type of issue then 6s works better.  Does this type of decision tree make sense to everyone?

He is completely unselfish with his time and will sacrifice his job to support those who work with him.
    That’s a tough act to follow in…[Read more]

    Hi Arora,
    Thoroughly confused huh? It will be a good idea to speak to companies in India who went thru the process. Speak to WIPRO, Tata Quality Management Services and even Pidilite. They all have embarked on this process, some with the help of consultants and some after their core team got trained.
    Good Luck
