Lean Six Sigma is a set of tools and skills to help you “simplify and perfect” your business processes.
The “simplify” comes from the Lean background, which focuses on only doing value-added tasks by removing the 8 types of wasteful activities. Learning to see these 8 types of waste is something you will learn in training. The “perfect” comes from Six Sigma, which is a data-driven way to reduce the amount of variation that exists in your processes. That really means you can be more consistent and reliable with your customers when your processes perform with less variation from customer expectations – it is said that customers don’t experience the “average” level of service they experience the variation which can lead to customer disappointment.
Lean Sigma GREEN BELT Training
Learn how to run a Lean Six Sigma project using the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) roadmap, and learn the individual Lean Six Sigma tools in detail (7 day training)
Lean Six Sigma combines the speed and simplicity of Lean with the statistical predictability of Six Sigma to create solutions for better business practices and dramatic bottom line results.
With Lean, the student will learn how to apply Single Piece Flow, Cellular Manufacturing, Kanbans, and 5S, Visual Controls, Error Proofing and Quick Changeovers to reduce cycle times and speed up production without reducing quality standards. Lean will focus on the removal of non-value added steps, thereby simplifying the process.
With Six Sigma, students learn how to make data driven decisions by using applied statistics. Over 35 tools are taught to allow students to gain process knowledge to make their processes Better, Faster, Lower Cost, and Safer. They will deploy these tools through a project using the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) roadmap. The Six Sigma tools strive to reduce process variance, measure the process, and find optimal settings in a pursuit of perfection.
