Green Belt

Learn how to run a Lean Six Sigma project using the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) roadmap, and learn the individual Lean Six Sigma tools in detail (6 day training)

Certification:

To become a certified Green Belt each student will need to complete these three steps;

  • Attend the training
  • Complete an online exam (80% pass rate)
  • Complete a Lean Six Sigma project

 

What to Expect

Lean Six Sigma combines the speed and simplicity of Lean with the statistical predictability of Six Sigma to create solutions for better business practices and dramatic bottom line results.

With Lean, the student will learn how to apply Single Piece Flow, Cellular Manufacturing, Kanbans, and 5S, Visual Controls, Error Proofing and Quick Change-overs to reduce cycle times and speed up production without reducing quality standards. Lean will focus on the removal of non-value added steps, thereby simplifying the process.

With Six Sigma, students learn how to make data driven decisions by using applied statistics. Over 35 tools are taught to allow students to gain process knowledge to make their processes Better, Faster, Lower Cost, and Safer. They will deploy these tools through a project using the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) roadmap. The Six Sigma tools strive to reduce process variance, measure the process, and find optimal settings in a pursuit of perfection.

Focus on using the Lean Sigma Tools to ensure sustainable process improvements. We give students many proven support tools and document files to ensure proper Lean Sigma project execution and documentation. Fun classroom exercises used to give students a “hands on” exposure to the Lean Sigma Tools and Concepts. Often our clients will require a completed and approved project demonstrating at least $50,000 cost savings for the organisation to then certify their people

Yellow Belt

A two-day course to give you the tools and skills to lead small-scale improvement projects in your workplace using Lean Six Sigma

Who Should Attend?

As this is a hands-on workshop, participants will leave the course with skills they can implement immediately and understand the project methodology to run & complete a Lean Six Sigma project.

White Belt

A one-day introduction to the tools and skills you can use to bring change and improvements to your workplace using Lean Six Sigma

Who Should Attend?

As this is a hands-on workshop, participants will leave the course with skills they can implement immediately. Strongly relevant to business owners, sole-traders, managers responsible for the results of their teams, as well as anyone connected with a process in need of improvements. Equally suitable for non-profit organisations.

What to Expect

This workshop is a combination of both the Variance Reduction workshop and the Lean Manufacturing workshops.
The purpose of Variance Reduction is to understand the steps of improving a process and the outcome of this training is learning how to apply quality tools and simple statistics to improve process performance and increase cash flow.
The purpose of Lean Manufacturing is to learn what Lean, Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma are, as well as how they can be used to improve your processes. You will also receive a complete understanding of the tools involved in Lean Manufacturing.
