Macroergonomic Approach in Development of Lean Six Sigma

Rama Dani Eka Putra, Nilda Tri Putri, Desto Jumeno


Lean Six Sigma in recent years has experienced a significant development. This is Because many adjustments must use other approaches to resolving failures in the implementation of lean six sigma in previous studies. Previous research saw Several aspects of failure based on organizational elements, operators and work environment. The elements that Become failures in implementing lean six sigma are elements that can be refined with Macroergonomics. This study aims to see to what extent the methods available in macroergonomics can be integrated with lean sigma. The results of this study are the work steps of the integration of macroergonomics with lean six sigma methods.
