Abstract:

"The book demonstrates how to use the Six Sigma methodology to make process-focused decisions that will achieve the goals of sustainability and allow organizations to gain true benefits from process improvements. It covers sustainability and metrics, Lean manufacturing, Six Sigma tools, sustainability project management, sustainability modeling, sustainable manufacturing and operations, decision making, and sustainability logistics. These tools help sustain results while keeping organizations competitive regardless of economic conditions. While continuous improvement techniques look good on paper, the implementation of the techniques can become difficult and challenging to maintain. Without utilizing Lean Six Sigma tools and leading the change, companies will become less and less marketable and profitable. This book supplies a blueprint on achieving sustainable results from high-quality improvements and making organizations competitive and first in class in their marketplace."--Back cover.
