What is Lean Six Sigma
The Six Sigma methodology for problem solving stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control.

There are two main concepts behind this methodology: “finding causality” is one of them, i.e., solving root causes rather than the symptoms they produce. The other is variability or the obstacles to making, doing, serving or producing always the same (quantities, quality, lead times, cash…).
