Airport Security is Lean Six Sigma Based

Lean Six Sigma-based airport security reports that airport security concerns not likely to dampen optimism in the business travel industry.

According to the results of a survey conducted by the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) 63 percent of the respondents (44 companies representing an aggregate $400 million in annual travel expenditures) indicated that they expected to spend either the same or more on business travel in 2010.

Because of this, airport security is tightened by introducing full-body, three-dimensional scanners to detect hidden weapons or explosive. This may make checking in a bit time consuming, but Canada airport management will see to it that no bottlenecks will happen, and operations won’t be affected as cumbersome day-to-day processes are being streamlined.

It’s interesting to note that ACTE Canada will be hosting an education forum in Toronto on March 9th which will highlight the principles of Lean Six Sigma as one strategy to improve business processes and improve quality.
