Good news America. Manufacturing is not dead in the USA. Today, factory output is 40 percent greater today than in 1998, albeit with 5 million fewer workers. All this is being accomplished at well-managed companies that are implementing new technologies and introducing new products while running Continuous Improvement (CI) programs like Lean and Six Sigma, reducing costs, improving profits and helping firms grow.
This workshop will review the benefits of Lean and Six Sigma programs and discuss the key tools with each program (e.g., TAKT time, 9 Wastes, Balanced Lines, Kaizen, Data Mining, Statistical Analysis, Process Capability). Both programs are commonly used in the Manufacturing sector in Military, Banking, Insurance, Retail, Government and in Healthcare. The two programs are in high demand by employers for cost saving activities, improved quality, and reduced lead times.
Key Benefits for Participants:
- Gain an understanding of Lean and Six Sigma, today’s entrance pass to work in manufacturing and healthcare.
- Learn the key tools of Continuous Improvement and how they’re used in today’s workplace
- Learn how continuous improvement methods are reshaping manufacturing, financial services and health care
- Gain an understanding of the different levels of training (Black, Green and Yellow Belt) and the project work required to become certified in Lean-Six Sigma
Who Should Attend? With rich, useful content, a ½ day commitment, and low price, the class is great for engineers, operations people, managers in manufacturing, financial services, health care, biotech, and any industry where efficiency, lower costs, and reduced production time are important. You’ll gain the knowledge you need about continuous improvement methods to become more marketable and to help decide whether more advanced training in Lean and Six Sigma is for you. This course is not part of a certification program but provides you with the knowledge needed to move forward in this field.
