Six Sigma

six sigma poster

LEM has embraced Six Sigma as its methodology in pursuit of business excellence. The main goals are to create a common language and a corporate culture in which effectiveness and efficiency play a major role.

Six Sigma is a methodology that provides businesses with the tools to improve the capability of their business processes. This increase in performance and decrease in process variation leads to a reduction in defects and a vast improvement in profits, employee morale and product quality.

Six Sigma is a rigorous and a systematic methodology that utilizes information (management by facts) and statistical analysis to measure and improve a company's operational performance, practices and systems by identifying and preventing 'defects' in manufacturing and service-related processes in order to anticipate and exceed expectations of all stakeholders to accomplish effectiveness.

Eco-Design

Design


When designing high performance products, LEM is committed to respect the environment and the principles of sustainable development. A step further is the concept of Eco-Design.

This approach consists in designing products while limiting their maximum impact on the environment such as:

• human health and safety,

• natural resources: consumption of raw materials and energy,

• ecosystem conservation: pollution of water, soil and air, climate change.

Eco-design : Product lifecycle

When using this approach, the whole product lifecycle is taken into account from its early design to its end of life at the moment of its recycling. It is a well-known fact that the design decisions for a product will condition its abilities to impact the environment.

For each step of the product lifecycle, an analysis is performed to keep the design solutions which will contribute to a sustainable environment, by reducing its environment impact as much as possible.

The three stages of the product lifecycle that are screened include:

Design Use End of Life

For each of these stages, LEM has defined rules to respect in order to achieve this main environmental goal:

To design a product with as little impact on the environment as possible throughout its life!
