This book explores synergies between Lean Six Sigma, Design for Six Sigma, and Value Engineering. It identifies opportunities where they can be used together to increase the likelihood of obtaining improvements beyond the capability of just one approach. Developed as business process improvement initiatives, with distinct origins and different methodological phases, each initiative presents a distinctive approach to problem solving. The authors provide a unique examination of these processes, with an analysis of possible synergies that can provide a competitive edge.
