Lean Manufacturing and 6-Sigma Problem Solving

Fast. Accurate. Agile. Lean.

At GLOBALFOUNDRIES, we have already traveled quite a long way on our Lean Six Sigma journey and are several years into the roll out of L6S with programs that have delivered significant results benefiting our clients, the quality of our solutions, and efficiency of our business operations.

Lean Six Sigma (L6S) is a highly effective methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically reducing variation and eliminating waste, and has achieved corporate-wide adoption in many areas of manufacturing at GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

Projects are selected based on business need and Return On Investment (ROI), and are completed in five phases: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control (DMAIC) using a toolkit that comprises all of the existing Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.

Carefully selected GLOBALFOUNDRIES staff are trained through a "belt"-based system and successful trainees are awarded Yellow Belts, Green Belts, Black Belts or Master Black Belts.
