In today’s global economy, the introduction of new methods, designs, products and processes have been accelerating in geometric progression due to changing consumers’ needs in the face of global competitions and technological advancement in product development. Product development managers and design stakeholders are facing real pressure to continuously adopt new system architecture and operational parameters to remain competitive. The viability of the product development and manufacturing firm now depends largely on how well they are able to respond to these changes in order to meet the customer requirements while becoming lean. The study will also provide a tool for monitoring the relationship between product performance and the Lean Product Development Tool (LPDT). It evaluates the relationship between Maggi spice production, of a Consolidated Foods Limited, in Nigeria and its relationship with DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) model, a lean six sigma tool, for evaluating root causes of product defects. At the end of the lean implementation, product performance of the pilot line, Omori Line 1 increases from 60% to 76% and a cost savings of NGR 12.03 million were realized at the end of the project.
