    I have read an interesting article that comapred Six Sigma and ACE (Achieving Competitive Excellence from UTC) quality strategies.
    It highlight strenght and weakness point of both, but as similar article never is reported about the different level of investiment to do, so that isn’t possible to do any ROI simulation.
    There is someone that have any data  to compare  investiment between SixSigma and ACE program ?

    ACE is just Lean with a different name.

    From article I read and from UTC web site (http://www.utc.com)  ACE seems  be a complete quality strategy based on two decade of work by Yuzuru Ito previously in Matsushita of Japan.
    Why you say it is just lean ?

    Therefore, you are saying, what is reported about ACE isn’t true ?

    $$$ performance counts whether you use lean or six sigma or combined version.
    ACE main ingerdient is lean and start adding TQM tools along the journey.

    ACE has incorporated TQM since day one. It is much more than lean…it is a quality first mindest that changes the culture at UTC toward EVERYONE working toward continuous improvement. The ACE operating systems affects not only ,manufacturing, but the business processes as well. 9 basic tools are used…and another 6, or so, (such as SPC) are used for advanced data analysis.
