U.S. Army saving $2 Billion from LSS
We've had a few posts about the LSS efforts of the military, including the Army and Air Force.
Here's an article from the Army (hat tip to iSixSigma's blogs) that spells out the savings. It looks like they are focused on good basic “blocking and tackling”:
- Reducing mass hall waste at West Point (officers-in-training receiving Green Belt training and being asked to work projects)
- Streamlining communication processes to reduce waste and delays
- Reducing recruitment process steps from 32 to 11
It's hard to see, on the surface, how that adds up to $2 Billion. There must be multitudes of projects all throughout the Army that start adding up.
Sounds like good work by the Army. Congrats! Thanks for using our tax dollars more efficiently.
