Abstract

Many factories employ a higher percentage of temporary employees as the number of experienced employees dwindles with each retirement and unemployment remains low. I am a fan of lean Six Sigma, in its proper time and place. Often, improving quality must be treated as a triage situation, with longer term care to follow. Such scenarios require quickly taught and understood approaches. A simple three-legged stool approach is an easy first step to long-term cultural improvement.
