ABSTRACT

Lean Six Sigma is a fact driven tool that joins two powerful business strategies known as Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma. Lean Six Sigma is adopted in an industry for eliminating waste, reducing process variations, and preventing defective product manufacturing which in turn reduces energy consumption and overall negative environment impacts. In that context, this case study uses LSS framework with environmental considerations to eliminate waste and improve industry’s performance without causing many negative impacts on environment. Steps by step improvement programs, analysis of raw materials and energy usages are performed to reduce process variation, energy usage and carbon-dioxide emission. The framework is used to define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC) method in a popular jute industry named “Company X”. Traditional impact assessment tools were also integrated.
