Recognizing the need to implement quality and remove waste, companies welcome Lean, Six Sigma, or a combination of the two, typically taking a broad technique that seeks to remediate every process, vital or not. When this takes place, efforts end up being distracted, enhancements indefinitely postponed, and results average at best.
The Ultimate Improvement Cycle (UIC) incorporates Lean, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints into a combined technique that will assist you immediately focus your efforts on those locations that will make the greatest difference. The book presents standard laws of factory physics that reveal why the UIC provides significant fundamental enhancement while other initiatives so frequently fail. It describes to you why focusing your efforts on obvious problems instead of systemic priorities is wasted effort.
Concentrate on key locations and take enhancement to the next level
The Ultimate Improvement Cycle: Maximizing Profits through the Integration of Lean, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraintsreveal you ways to draw the best from Lean and Six Sigma by employing principles drawn from the Theory of Constraints. This technique will ensure that your effort is focused in the ideal place, at the right time, using the right devices, and the right amount of resources. This multi-pronged technique addresses cost accounting, variation, waste, and efficiency measurements. However most notably, it focuses your company on the ideal locations to enhance.
Applying years of hands-on work in numerous environments, Bob Sproull has established a special proven approach that profits from a time-release formula for evoking the secret devices that enhancement requires. He reveals you ways to benefit from the cyclical nature of enhancement to implement change that is perpetually effective, and his technique does not need more resources than you have on hand. Although originally established in manufacturing, the UIC works similarly well in any environment whether it be making or service-oriented, consisting of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) and Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM).
