Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Outline | Credits: 5.6
The course is designed to facilitate appropriate application of Lean and Six Sigma tools in the minimization of process waste and the reduction of process variability. Emphasis is placed on providing trainees with the well known concepts, tools and methodologies to apply the DMAIC and Lean methodologies to assist in problem solving initiatives associated with costly problems. The course is project-based and process-oriented. It is designed to promote quick application of the tools to save both time and money. MMTC strongly recommends that certification candidates have a managerial sponsor support their project selection and completion.
Over eight days, individuals are introduced to:
- Lean Six Sigma definitions and concept correlations
- Understanding losses attributed to waste
- Selecting and organizing a good starting project
- Define– Measure– Analyze – Improve– Control
- Value Stream Mapping and Swim Lanes
- Project Charters
- Standardized Work
- Reliability and Asset Utilization
- Basic Statistics
