Lean is an operation strategy which aims to reduce the time between taking an order and receiving the cash for the delivered product or service.

It does this by improving flow efficiency first and then improves the resource efficiency to reduce operational expenses. Flow efficiency in this case is the speed a product or service runs through a process from end to end. Resource efficiency is the level of value-added utilisation of the resources (operators and equipment) in each of the process steps.

SixSigma is a problem solving methodology which aims to solve complex problems by using statistical tools to understand trends and patterns in data so that root causes can be identified and understood.

The methodology works with a standardised logical sequence of analysis steps (DMAIC) to ensure the problem solving process has a high chance of success.

Theory of Constraints is an on-going process, and the foundation for achieving sustainable change through TOC is by defining a set of three essential measurements that drive the change process.

Conventional accounting systems do not always provide the right support for TOC, or lean-based efforts. We recommend to steer away from traditional measures derived from the "product cost" accounting methods.
