The following essay compares the Lean Six Sigma and Uniformed Army Scientists and Engineers (UAS&E) transformation efforts of the United States military. This analysis will identify key factors which led to the transformation as well as, policies which were enacted in order to effect this transformation. A discussion of the leading forces which shaped these policies for the success of the transformation will follow; followed by an assessment of the desired effects of the transformation compared to the actual outcomes. Finally, the researcher will synthesize the insights gained by this study; resulting in preparation recommendations for soldiers as they prepare for future challenges.

Due to LSS success, soldiers are receiving much needed equipment in half the time as before LSS was implemented. [...]

One of the leaders in creating a viable career track for uniformed Army engineers and scientists (UAS&E) is General Paul Kern, commanding General of the Army Material Command. [...]
