Eduardo Moura presents
"The Need to Integrate TOC, Lean, Six Sigma and Management by Processes"

In 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.
