Xerox Chalks Waste Prevention Success Up to Lean Six Sigma

Xerox, which manages Procter & Gamble’s worldwide print operations, has been able to help P&G cut operational costs 20-25 percent by helping control when and how printers, copier and fax machines work.

Xerox used Lean Six Sigma to uncover methods to manage a company’s document strategy. Xerox then incorporated the methods within its own operations and at P&G, according to a press release.

At P&G, it’s predicted that the improvements will cut printer-related power usage by 30 percent and paper consumption by 20-30 percent.
