Lean Six Sigma Deployment

I currently work in a manufacturing business which is currently training a number YB's, GB's, and BB's. The 3 BB's are in different fuctional parts of the business (Assembly, Commercial, and Manufacture). I am currently mulling over which way to deploy these guys effectively, my initial thought is to have these guys running improvement projects (with GB's and BB's) but also looking at there respective Value Streams in terms of applying LSS tools. I was initially going to have the guys apply VSM to identify waste, FMEA to identify areas of possible weakness/variation, and get them to come up with appropriate metrics to measure their Value Stream. Do you think that this is appropriate method of initially deploying LSS in the business?

:thanx:

This is a good "Bottom up" approach. I would also supplement this with a "Top down" approach based on another two areas: 1) What is causing your external customers the most pain? 2) What is causing your internal customers the most pain?
