TODAY'S FOCUS

Army G-4 Lean Six Sigma

What is it? This program helps focus G-4 efforts in leading business innovations while delivering logistics readiness at best value to our nation and the United States Army.

What is the Army doing? We are committed to delivering logistics readiness at best value to our customers. In 2006, we embarked on an aggressive campaign to train LSS principles and apply them to improving our high value logistics processes. Our LSS projects focus on our highest priorities: equipment reset; retrograde and redistribution; requirements determination; financial accounting; in-transit visibility and policy development. The process improvements we are targeting will significantly improve our logistics readiness and ensure our limited resources are most effectively applied.
