After finished the PIUSS course, and submitted the PMA, it makes me realized that Lean and Six Sigma methodologies are very useful for being applied in the management field in any organizations. By integrating these concepts, it could help the organization eliminate wastes and reduce variation in business processes. Besides manufacturing and transactional industries, the methodologies can be applied in service industry. Through my PMA, from reading in many literatures, it seems like to combine these two methodologies together is quite difficult, and somehow confused, due to traditionally, they were developed from totally different roots. However, in these days, many organizations are successful from deploying the LSS approach for achieveing continuous improvement in terms of quality in products, service, and processes. Some tools and teachniques of LSS are utilized for particular problems and opportunities. Many literatures and research papers mention that it is better for organizations to deploy LSS methodologies rather than deploy only either Lean or Six Sigma.
To sum up, I think I am enjoyed studied in this course, especially the teaching style (for instance, the plane manufacturing line, and helicopter experiment). Also, I really enjoyed doing PIUSS PMA due to I think the Lean Six Sigma approach is very beneficial for my business, as well as, it is interesting topic which I chose to be a topic for my dissertation.
