The Lean Six Sigma minor is open to all majors. The minor melds two compatible methodologies: Lean and Six Sigma. Lean focuses on increasing efficiencies and eliminating waste in the supply chain, especially the processing stage. Six Sigma is a quality-focused problem solving methodology. Though both Lean and Six Sigma have their roots in the manufacturing setting, both, expecially in combination, are widely applied to construction, mechanical design, banking, education, health care, and many other service and technology industries.
