It’s important to know what kind of Lean Six Sigma project you’re considering. These are 5 classic project types to help you decide. If you’re looking to conduct a Green Belt or a Black Belt project, then you should be working on a Process Improvement Project.
- Implementation of a simple solution to a known issue
- The problem is contained in one department, the root cause is known and the fix is painless
- Also called “Just-Do-It” or Fast Track
- Incremental reduction of defects, cycle time or cost
- The presenting issue has an unknown cause and solutions are not predetermined
- Also called DMAIC, Lean, or PDCA

- Creation of a brand-new, non-existent process
- There is no existing process to analyze which require benchmarking and collection of VOC
- Also called DFSS or DMADV
- Overhaul of non-capable, existing process
- The process exists, but incremental improvements will not be able to satisfy requirements
- Also called Reengineering
- Establishment of key measurement systems
- Monitoring of process capability and VOC are established to better focus improvement efforts
- Also called Process Management
