Industry is constantly attempting to improve procedures which control processing and production efficiency and profit. Lean manufacturing, which materialized out of Japanese industrial manufacturing settings, revolutionized minimizing waste from production lines. As the impact of lean manufacturing became clear, several methods to achieve leaner operations developed, including 5S. Quality management is another popular way to increase efficiency and profit; a prominent technique which falls into this category is called Six Sigma. This research explores the origins, applications, and viability of attempting to incorporate the best practices within each system on a manufacturing level.
