PowerSteering to Drive Six Sigma and Lean for Tyco

Published: Sunday, April 25, 2004 - 22:00

Tyco International Ltd. has selected PowerSteering Software’s enterprise program management solution to support Six Sigma and lean initiatives in all five of its business units.

At full deployment, employees across the company will use PowerSteering to manage thousands of Six Sigma projects while allowing the executives at Tyco to compile a real-time corporatewide view of financial benefits, staffing and project status. In addition, PowerSteering software will facilitate best-practice sharing across business units.

"Our Six Sigma and lean program is critical to the company’s future," says Naren Gursahaney, senior vice president of operational excellence at Tyco. "PowerSteering’s solution will provide us clear visibility into our efforts, so we can ensure we are making progress and driving results on all fronts."

Tyco will use PowerSteering to track projects through their entire life cycle, from project initiation to completion and realization of savings. Project results will then be archived and searchable for reference and reuse. As a result, Six Sigma professionals at Tyco can make more effective project investment decisions, share experience, report results and reduce costs.

"One of PowerSteering’s core strengths is to build great relationships with great clients," explains David Boghossian, CEO of PowerSteering Software. "Tyco’s commitment to its Six Sigma/lean program makes it a perfect partner for us. PowerSteering provides the industry’s best tool for managing and tracking Operational Excellence initiatives to save customers time and money, and is the only solution powerful enough and flexible enough to meet the challenge of Tyco’s five independent business units, numerous physical locations and diverse program approaches."
