The purpose of this paper is to present a framework for integrating Lean Six Sigma DMAIC methodology and belt based training infrastructure with ISO 9001:2008 standard based Quality Management System.
A new model called L6QMS 2008 has been developed from the process based quality management system model of ISO 9001:2008 standard based Quality Management System. This model integrates the Lean Six Sigma requirements as appended additional sub‐clauses in the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
L6QMS 2008 aids an organization in implementing a Lean Six Sigma programme with minimum effort and expenditure.
Results of case studies illustrating the implementation of this integrated approach are presented in this research paper.
This paper presents a unique approach of integrating the three main management models, namely Lean, Six Sigma and ISO 9001:2008 standard based Quality Management System, as a single framework benefiting contemporary organizations.
