Eduardo Moura presents
"The Need to Integrate TOC, Lean, Six Sigma and
Management by Processes"
this presentation, the authors show the need and advantages of
integrating TOC (Theory of Constraints), Lean Production System, Six
Sigma and BMP (Business Management by Processes) into a coherent system
for organizational development and improved business performance.
Besides the unique contributions that each one of those methodologies
provide, there is a synergistic effect between them that are not
currently recognized and exploited in most organizations around the
world. The vast majority of consulting companies typically specialize
and offer just one of those methodologies, but their client companies
do have a need to reap the benefits of a holistic approach, in order to
continuously improve their competitiveness. The authors also emphasize
the importance of creating an organizational environment where the
know-how provided by those four methodologies are built upon a
philosophical base (the know-why established by the core values,
mission and long-term vision), with the improvement efforts oriented
around a few critical aspects of the business system (the know-what
summarized in the National Quality Award criteria). Guidance is also
provided about how to start the practical implementation of the
proposed approach, and a case study is presented.
