E & E Medicals offers a very unique Six Sigma program that is designed for the Healthcare industry. While much of the Lean Six Sigma methodologies are applicable to any process improvement program, there are certain unique qualities of the Healthcare environment that require a full understanding of what providers are currently facing.

Six Sigma is a process improvement initiative used to eliminate defects from processes. The goal is to create near perfection through continuous improvement that aligns the "voice of the process" with the "voice of the customer". No more than 3.4 defects per one million opportunities (DPMO) is the goal of Six Sigma level of quality.

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a separate and emerging business-process management methodology related to traditional Six Sigma. While the tools and order used in Six Sigma require a process to be in place and functioning, DFSS has the objective of determining the needs of customers and the business, and driving those needs into the product solution so created. DFSS is relevant to the complex system/product synthesis phase, especially in the context of unprecedented system development.


Lean Six Sigma provides a systematic approach which reduces waste in the value stream. It not only covers defective products, but all types of defective work. It identifies defects, overproduction, inventories (in process or finished goods), unnecessary processing, unnecessary movement of people, unnecessary transport of goods, waiting, and designing goods and services that don't meet customer's needs.


Our Approach integrates the principles of DMADV (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, and Verify). This results in product designs that consistently meet customer requirements, target costs, target release dates, and manufacturing requirements.
