CAMMS – Cork Institute of Technology 


Lean Sigma is a very successful methodology for Service Design and Operational Productivity Improvement. For over ten years we have used a blend of Lean and Six Sigma philosophies to deliver proven education that has been highly successful. By engaging students in methodologies that sustain gains they have been successful in achieving project savings of €100,000 for their organisations and, in many cases, much more.

Lean Sigma is based on the elimination of waste and the reduction of variability in processing through engagement and respect for all staff.

Unlike many other programs Lean Sigma is applicable to large or small organisations, in public and private sectors and in all types of service or production operations. CIT accredited courses to suit all levels of your organisation are available through CAMMS and QMOne. Log onto www.cit.ie and search Lean Sigma courses or www.QMOne.com for more information.
