The other principle of the lean technique is to purport that there should be no unnecessary delay in production department procedure by reason of unavailability of the material, labor or any other necessary things. It support efficient transportation of the products and decreases the quantity of defective and unusable products.

Lesser the defects more the revenue and these are better for the business. Lean six sigma can offer a wealth of Tangible benefits, when skillfully applied.
