Authors
Purpose
Design
Main findings
Limitations
Conclusion: further studies

Paul Alexander, Jiju Antony, and Bryan A Rodgers
are affiliates to Heriot-Watt University, Department
of Business Management.
The purpose for their study was to “explore the
most common themes within Lean Six Sigma (LSS)
relating to Small and Medium enterprises (SMEs)
within manufacturing organisations and to identify
the research gaps in the existing literature” (p. 378)

Research Design
• The authors used Tranfeild et al's
(2003) systematic review methodology

• The methodology comprised three
stages:

1. Planning,
2. Conducting, and
3. Reporting/dissemination.

Main Findings
• The study’s findings included:
a. “52 journals have been reviewed
b. there are many areas in which LSS has been utilised with varying successes
c. It is vital that LSS practitioners are fully aware of the benefits, limitations
and impeding factors when implementing a LSS initiative

Limitations
• The systematic review were peer-reviewed papers available in English
• The authors excluded all conference and white papers



Although LSS is a powerful methodology, there are many gaps that exist in the literature and
further research is needed to address these in the field of LSS.

Valuable insights should be obtained from the study to be used in ensuring that maximum value
is obtained from LSS implementation in SMEs.
