Lean Six Sigma is, in essence, an approach to managing business performance improvement. Two individual methodologies – Lean and Six Sigma – were merged into one concept which aims to eliminate seven different kinds of waste. The acronym for the waste is TIM WOOD, which stands for transportation, inventory, motion, waiting, over-processing, over-production and defects.


The Lean Six Sigma concept can help you in tackling waste and waste management both in a literal and figurative sense. At Skippy Nationwide we can help you with the disposal of material waste which is produced during the manufacturing process. By streamlining these processes your business will be able to put a greater focus on core activities.


Waste Management According To Lean Six Sigma


The process flow at any business can be improved with the Lean Six Sigma. It can also help you reduce waste, which is categorised by the previously mentioned TIM WOOD acronym. Let’s look at each of them in more detail.


·         Transportation – unnecessarily moving materials and products.

·         Inventory – overproducing which results in overstock.

·         Motion – inappropriate sitting of employees or equipment.

·         Waiting – downtime of equipment which results in delays.

·         Over-processing – unnecessary processing steps.

·         Over-production – production of more stock or producing it earlier than needed.

·         Defects – handling reworks.
