Lean Six Sigma has been driving continuous improvement efforts for decades, but its shortcomings have become apparent. Data gathering is labor-intensive and only able to capture small sample sizes. Smart technologies are dramatically changing the continuous improvement landscape. Now it is possible to capture data over extended periods and multiple locations at a fraction of the cost of old manual methods. A digital twin of physical operations can complement the traditional and well-respected tools used in both lean and Six Sigma, leading to significant improvements in safety, efficiency, and costs.
