I do not think 6 Sigma, TPS or Lean implementation can solve all the problems individually. But used as a system they can make drastic improvements to an organization. However, this takes a great deal of time, dedication and effort to implement and execute this system properly. This can really transform an organization but the organization must have clear goals for the system

In my opinion quality control should not interfere with value added activities and most important should not increase cost of service. Take Dabbawala for example; in 1998, Forbes Magazine found its reliability to be that of a six sigma standard. This food delivery service is admirable being able to control at high performance with very low tech and low budget. Dabbawalas service has a great room for mistake, although committed to quality each member of the organization contributes to make less than one mistake in every 6 million deliveries. Once all members of an organization are delivering and committed to quality as a result the organization becomes a well oiled machinery error proofing itself in every stage.
