Course Description

Lean manufacturing or lean production, often simply lean", is a systematic method for the elimination of waste within a manufacturing system. Lean also takes into account waste created through overburden and waste created through unevenness in work loads. LEAN manufacturing is something every person, at every level, can use to solve problems in their area of control. This one-day class will consist of 5S, 8 Wastes, Deep Observation, Value Stream Mapping, A3 One-Page Corrective Action Reports, and Kaizen Events."

LEAN Six Sigma improves business performance by removing waste through Lean manufacturing methods and reducing variation in processes that cause defects by applying Six Sigma Statistical Process Control tools. In this 8-hour LEAN Six Sigma Yellow Belt course you will learn how to minimize waste with A3 problem solving, value stream mapping, Kaizen and 5S organization. You will also learn practical Six Sigma tools including DMAIC (Design, Measure, Analyze, Implement and Control), project charters, statistical process control with performance boards and pareto charts, and Failure Modes Effects Analysis. It will provide you with an understanding of LEAN Six Sigma methodology so that you can perform LEAN process improvement to minimize waste and participate in Six Sigma projects to reduce variation in processes.
