Lean Six Sigma Training

Streamlining processes with Lean Six Sigma

TOPIC INTRODUCTION

In earlier times, organisations depended on the experience of the professionals for their projects to succeed. The way to success depended upon how a manager had solved a particular problem earlier. Sometimes success was not even granted and led to incomplete projects and losses to the organisation. It was Motorola in the late 1980’s who took the initiative to start following an approach called “muda” (Japanese) or waste reduction. According to this approach, the unwanted processes are removed from the production line to achieve better results and productivity. Sometime later “muda” came to be known as Six Sigma and along with Lean, it became Lean Six Sigma.  While Lean relies on a collective team effort that helps improve operations by reducing variation, Six Sigma removes the eight kinds of wastes.

  • Remove waste processes with Lean Six Sigma

  • Understand the 5S Techniques

  • Know What is MUDA and the DMAIC

  • Learn an Industry independent Methodology

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Lean Six Sigma helps remove the eight kinds of waste from the production line. These can be classified as:

  • Transporting
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-Processing
  • Over-Production
  • Defects
  • Under Utilization of employees

 

To tighten up the links between the processes, Lean Six Sigma removes the process variations occur in the process steps of a project. It is the Japanese 5s technique that is followed to implement this methodology. To streamline, five processes to be followed are listed below in that very order:

  • Sort
  • Straighten
  • Shine
  • Standardise
  • Sustain

 

In the Lean Six Sigma training at MSP Training, the training contains Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade courses.

Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course serves as a foundation level course to those delegates who are new to the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It teaches the basics of the Lean Six Sigma methodology to the delegates who are new to it.

A professional can be certified as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt if he/she is a Yellow Belt Professional already. In case the delegate is not a Yellow Belt professional, the course content of the Yellow Belt course will be covered in the Green Belt course also.

The highest level of a Lean Six Sigma that the MSP training covers is the Black Belt course. A Black Belt professional leads a team of Green Belt professionals. It is a must for the delegates sitting for the Black Belt course that they come along with a Green Belt project to be completed after the Black Belt course. The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course is the highest level achievable by a professional undergoing the Lean Six Sigma training.

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Upgrade course is another course for which a professional can opt at MSP Training. Though equal in value to the Black Belt course, it is different in that it does not teach the concepts up to Green Belt rather starts directly with the Black Belt concepts.
