Abstract:

Many organizations have struggled over the past few decades with a blizzard of process improvement methodologies such as Total Quality Management TQM, Kaizen, JIT Production, and Re-Engineering. These operations are understandably leery of adopting new methodologies given their past experience, especially with a focus on return on investments and leveraging existing practices. This article examines the relationship of Agile, CMMI , Lean Production and the Six Sigma Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control DMAIC roadmap. The intent is to explain how these methodologies might be synergistically combined for a cohesive approach to enhance continuous process improvement.
