Control is the final step of Lean Six Sigma roadmap; the objective of this phase is to:
  • Test the quality level because it is the result of previous Lean Six Sigma steps

  • Validate the method and its effectiveness used in improvement

  • Standardize the method if its effectiveness is proven

  • Implement control plan to sustain the improved long term

  • Use visual management and an error proofing system to maintain high level performance

  • Verify the applicabilities and possible extensions of the method for other possible problems or company areas
