Basic Principles of Lean-Sigma To Win the Competition

Posted in Lean Manufacturing, and Lean Six Sigma

The term lean is an attempt to pass the renewal and reduce the variety of waste in a company to improve the quality of the product or service so that it will be worth more in the eyes of the customer. The basic concept of Lean-Sigma in the end is the lower costs incurred in the activities of the company. In this case the company concentrates identifying costs that should not be excluded. In other words the savings made by emphasizing the good work efficiency is realized by the member firms or not.

As known in advance that the implementation of lean manufacturing was first introduced by Taiichi Ohno of Toyota Motor Company, a world-class giant company that is always active and doing improvement innovations in the field of efficiency and product quality. With such conditions the company Toyota to compete in world markets with a quality and competitive price.

Six Sigma Improvement Tools: Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)

Posted in Lean Six Sigma

Besides CNX diagram (Fishbone diagram) and Pareto diagram, there are other ways to determine the significant Few opportunities is by FMEA. Pareto diagram requires a lot of data variations to determine the factors that most influence on an event / process. If the data is not possible then the results obtained will be raw and less satisfying. For that use of FMEA is strongly recommended.


The use of FMEA in the beginning was the maintenance of industrial safety or reliability, but later widely used in various processes. From the FMEA results, improvement priorities will be given to components that have a priority level (NDP) the highest.

FMEA is made in tables consisting of columns as follows.
Component: The component to be studied can include machines, processes, etc.
Failure Mode: The model of the failure is often the case.
Failure Effect: the impact if a component called the failure modes fail.
SEV: severity is the quantification of how serious the condition that caused the failure of a result mentioned in the failure effect. This is a level of seriousness that was written 1,2,3,4,5 (not serious to very serious)
