Lean six sigma methodology continues to gain popularity in various sectors. It is well documented that the tools of lean and six sigma had been used successfully to save companies and other organizations, large and small, millions of dollars and to realize breakthrough improvements in quality and cycle time. Surface mount technology companies regularly use lean six sigma tools that include value stream mapping, 5S, Pareto charts, fishbone diagrams, house of quality, and DOE.
Nowadays, professionals are required to have at least some lean six sigma training. For instance, TheSixSigmaWay had trained professionals from the electronics industry, aerospace, healthcare, banking, hospitality, military, agriculture sector, and state and federal governments.
Attendees of This lean six sigma yellow belt class will receive a complete overview of the five Lean Six Sigma phases (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) with emphasis on the Define and Measure phases. An understanding of the focus differences between Lean and Six Sigma, their history, and their primary objectives. Key tools used for both Lean and Six Sigma will be discussed; however, only tools from the Define and Measure phases will be comprehensive.
PLEASE NOTE: White Belt Certification is not a Prerequisite for this course.
Attendees will understand:
Define Phase – Day 1
Measure Phase – Day 2
Who Should Attend:
This course is intended for all levels of business operation personnel who are concerned about and wish to become familiar and comfortable with Lean Six Sigma and obtain a yellow belt certification. This course will be of benefit to all levels of business operations. White Belt Certification is not a prerequisite for this course.
