Combinations of Lean and six sigma and use of Mindmap
In last few days i learned about how different authors made different combinations of lean and six sigma and how they implemented the combined methodology in real businesses. The compatibility of two approaches will depend upon the type of combination made by different tools. some combinations of lean and six sigma as first implement lean to reduce waste and then implement and increase efficiency then implement six sigma to reduce variation and improve quality. the other type of combination is implement six sigma first and follow DMAIC methodology as a framework to implement lean tools. Another type of combination is implementing lean and six sigma simultaneously as a holistic way. so every combination has its own thinking, but ultimately needs some practical experiments to see compatibility of each type of combination.
Also wants to share some good experience while doing PMA, I got lot of help form mindmap as this tool helps to diversify over thinking and keeps us motivating to think out of box.. i found this tool very important for planning PMA and then for executing the plan. We can start with mindmap then gradually we can edit it according to our need as we progress on our work.
