Plano, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/30/2012 -- Every year, Industry Week Magazine surveys US manufacturers about the improvement methods being used and 70% were using Lean, and 29% were using Six Sigma.
US manufacturers are trying a variety of tools to improve their competiveness. Fewer than 25% of the companies report significant progress towards world class.
According to Pinnacle Strategies’ President & CEO, “Many organizations struggle with their continuous improvement (CI) efforts; achieving real bottom line results, whether in cost savings or increased revenues, has proven to be difficult. In spite of the widespread implementation of Lean and Six Sigma principles, poor results persist. The TLS process generates 15-?20 times better performance than Lean or Six Sigma. The root causes of poor CI program performance must be examined and a systematic framework formed to create ongoing bottom line results.”
Woeppel noted, “Even though many organizations try to improve their performance, most of the time, their results fall far short of expectations.”
