In today's competitive environment, daily increases in business excellence and competitive strength is the common goal of all activities (processes) carried out by all competitive industrial sectors. Industrial organizations’ perspective on problems appears to be the most important determining factor when seeking motivation to identify and solve problems. Kaizen kobetsu is a Japanese approach, consisting of a number of systematic studies in which employees work by a specific plan focusing on a problem, detecting its source and according to its type, develop and test countermeasures to eliminate it. The 6 Sigma uses experience as well as process information and data to put forward cause-effect relationships, determine the problems (variability) source and develop the appropriate solution. These two approaches are applied in our factory to solve problems occurring in our assembly process. We've brought forward recommendations to identify the strengths and weaknesses, and get more effective results from each approach.
