Craft Production and Six Sigma and Lean

Apart from mass production and lean production discussed in Louis's blog I came across this production method. Its is a higly flexible production method. It is basically a few skilled people working on a product and custom make it for the customer (For example make the car more decorative). It can be quite expensive and the out put less compared to lean and mass production. My professor in my previous school told me that mass production started in US. It was practised by General Motors. Lean started in Japan and is practised by Toyota. Craft Production originates from Europe. I really like the idea of Craft prodction. In India I do see some traces of Craft Prodution. Its practised by this person D. Chabaria. He customizes a car for the customer. He is highly successful in following craft production. I think  six sigma can be applied to craft production also. Some processes in craft production too might be standarised. In those processes six sigma can be applied. Six six sigma can be applied to mass production too. The DMAIC circle can be applied too. But I think its most effective with Lean.
