    The same way you apply it to any other process….follow the DMAIC methodology.

    Start by creating process flows for each separate process
    to see exactly what part each form or copy plays. This
    should help you to spot redundancy. To improve each
    process, as already noted, use theDMAIC approach.

    aabha,
    The “a lot of paper work” does not have anything to do with it. You can launch a SS project in any process with two questions:
    1. What is a defect?
    2. How do I measure that defect?
    Answer those two questions and then do exactly what Darth said. You do it the same as you would any other project.
    Good luck.

    Do a simple value stream or process mapping on your existing process to remove those NVA steps and also kick off 5S housekeeping campaign to clean up “sxxi” from your workplace.

    Automation is the answer.
    Do you want do Six Sigma because you want to apply it. If more paperwork is involved, what Six Sigma has to do with it, just replace the paperwork with automation.

    While automation might be the eventual solution, a good analysis of the process is still in order.  Automating a bad, inefficient process just lets one produce crap at a faster rate.  Once DMAIC has been applied and the process improved and leaned, then you might find that automation might not be needed or….it might be the solution.  Jumping straight to automation without analysis might not be the way to go.

    Do the right thing first, not do the thing right. Don’t over-emphasised on IT (unless your are a sale person for IT company!) and IT automation shall be come last after you have redesigned your process to lean and mean. I may only need a low cost desktop instead of buying an expensive server to automate fat and inefficient process flow. 
    For example, you can run a paperless production line without any IT system involved if people willing to use their brain power to think out solutions.
