In second part of 2008 with the assistance of Hubertas Petruzis the Network Technology Department (NTD) of Omintel (the biggest mobile operator in Lithuania) has implemented some of Six Sigma solutions that led to significant cost reduction.
We had an ambitious cost saving targets for 2008 and those targets were raised to even higher level in a course of the year. In a course of our Six Sigma project our company service volume has doubled, but we managed to bring down the cost level to two time s lower level than it was planned (meanwhile, providing our customers with the same high level of service).
The Six Sigma project has generated an impressive outcome – each euro that was spent by our Department provided with 4 time higher value compared to initial plan.
