Abstract: Reducing wasteful or non-value processes is one of the most important concerns in an organization. The organization, which approaches to reduce its wasteful processes, will achieve business improvement and satisfied customer and boosts its profit. To reach this goal organizations use various quality improvement methods such as Lean Management, ISO 9000 Series, Total Quality Management, Six Sigam and etc. Base on the situations companies often use more than one method simultaneously to increase the effectively of those models and to benefit their advantages. Organization which knows how various Quality improvement methods should be integrated can profit more and increase the affectivity of those methods. Although, there are some studies, which are investigated the possible integration between two models like Six Sigma and Lean Management, however, there is not clear how to integrate and optimize various quality and management methods to reduce wasteful or non-value activities. We propose an integrated method for some quality and management methods such as Total Quality Management, Lean Management, ISO 9000 Series, Six Sigma and EFQM Excellence Model, which could be used by organization to improve its quality, reduce wasteful processes and optimize quality improvement methods.
