With the Lean and Six Sigma training, you will be able to:
Learn how to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation, by combination of lean manufacturing/lean enterprise and Six Sigma.
Lean looks at ways to reduce waste while Six Sigma focuses on achieving consistent results.
Lean thinking is a mindset – a way of viewing the world. Lean is about focus, removing waste, and increasing customer value Establishing value allows organizations to create a top-down target price. The cost to produce the products and services is then determined. The organization focuses on eliminating waste so that they can deliver the value the customer expects at the highest level of profitability.
Lean is about smooth process flows, doing only those activities that add customer value and eliminating all other activities that don’t. If it doesn’t add value then it must add cost.
Lean manufacturing is a methodology that focuses on minimizing waste within manufacturing systems while simultaneously maximizing productivity.
Also known as lean production, or just lean, the integrated sociotechnical approach is based on the Toyota Production System.
Find most used Lean tools: Kaizen, 5S, SMED, Root Cause Analysis, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping, PDCA, from a big toolbox that you can use as needed to reduce waste.
Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving toward six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process – from development or manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.
Six Sigma is a method that provides organizations tools to improve the capability of their business processes. This increase in performance and decrease in process variation helps lead to defect reduction and improvement in profits, employee morale, and quality of products or services.
To achieve Six Sigma — statistically — a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. A Six Sigma defect is defined as anything outside of customer specifications. A Six Sigma opportunity is then the total quantity of chances for a defect.
The participants will attend a theoretical training session in Lean and Six Sigma and a workshop that will concentrate on a project to use the most appropriate tools and methodologies.
The Lean and Six Sigma training workshop will be performed using specific templates and a benchmark example.
