Lean Six Sigma
Having problems with long lead times, poor cash flow, low profitability, increased customer complaints, excessive returns or low first pass yields? Do you spend more time firefighting than improving? Do you lack the hard data to support decision-making or gauge progress? For issues that spring from waste and variation, there’s no better solution than Lean Six Sigma. Designed for small and midsize manufacturers, Lean Six Sigma is a comprehensive business improvement system that combines the speed and flexibility of Lean with the data-driven analytical tools of Six Sigma. It increases precision and reduces variability, driving speed, quality and cost simultaneously across your enterprise.

ISO 9001: 2015 Certification
Get certified under the new standard within the 3-year transition window
ISO 9001: 2015 responds to current trends, is compatible with other management systems such as ISO 14001, and keeps the standard relevant for the marketplace.
Act now! Companies with ISO 9001: 2008 certification have until September 2018 to be certified under the new 2015 standard.
The benefits of ISO certification go well beyond improved quality. Designed for small & mid-sized manufacturers, typical results include $300,000 to $10 million in sales increases, improved on-time delivery, reduced defects and fewer product returns.
This is a business system that addresses quality – not a quality system. What results is a more focused and efficient business operation that delivers improved results for the company, for employees and customers.
Summary of the key changes in the 2015 standard:
- Greater emphasis on building a management system suited to each organization’s
- Top management of an organization will be involved and accountable, aligning quality
with wider business strategy
- Risk-based thinking throughout the standard makes the whole management system
a preventive tool and encourages continuous improvement
- Less prescriptive requirements for documentation, allowing the organization to decide
what documented information it needs and what format it should be in
- Alignment with other key management system standards through the use of a common structure and core text
