After that, we analyze current state and use the information to provide results in Analysis and Synthesis section. Introduction: Process Improvement or Business Process Improvement
Incorporation of Lean Six Sigma without prior streamlining and optimization of the process will limit the opportunity to benefit from the speed and robustness that the technology proposes. The dearth of theoretical and empirical evidence on the applicability of Lean Six Sigma technology in research conducted by medical device and pharmaceutical companies led to this position paper to present the proficiency of this technology with real-time illustrations. The excerpts on application of Lean Six Sigma DMAIC
