lean 6 sigma:

LSS is an approach that combines the process improvement benefits of the Six Sigma method with the cost reduction benefits of lean production. As a combined management approach, LSS amplifies the strengths and minimizes the weaknesses of both approaches when used alone. Increasingly popular, Lean Six Sigma first emphasizes the use of Lean methodologies and tools to identify and remove waste and increase process velocity, then follows that with the use of Six Sigma methodologies and tools to identify and reduce or remove process variation. Most deployments (organizations that run quality initiatives within a company) now choose to use Lean Six Sigma rather than just one or the other methodology.
