Abstract:The six‐sigma systems can promote the enterprise competitive ability, such as pursuing cost improvement, promoting quality, the customer's satisfaction and valid strategy performance. This paper explored the synergies resulting from the combination of state‐of‐the art quality initiatives, lean and design for Six Sigma, and develop an integrated SCOR with lean and design for Six Sigma methodologies for their applications to service process improvement and design/or resign. We used the concepts of strength and weaknesses of supply chain operations, lean, and design for six‐sigma, for developing a lean design for six‐sigma through supply chain model. We discussed a lean and design for Six Sigma through supply chain methodology.
