The purpose of this Joint Applied Project is to analyze the application of Lean Six Sigma LSS within the Department of Defense DoD, and more specifically, to provide successful examples from the Army, Navy, and Air Force using LSS. This research project discusses and analyzes each of the examples from those military branches and compares them to the Lean Six Sigma Principles. Through the data that was analyzed, it was found that all three military branches have done a good job in implementing LSS. During this research and analysis, we found that even though the military branches said everything was going well, that it did not necessarily mean everything was fine. It was very difficult to find any data that mentioned negative aspects or things that could have been done differently when implementing Lean Six Sigma.
