Enhance management approaches with Lean Six Sigma
Remove waste and ensure quality delivery
Work through the Lean Six Sigma Belt levels with Pentagon Training
Improve processes whilst decreasing costs
Acquire knowledge of DMAIC and DMADV methods
Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation. It combines the ideologies of Lean manufacturing/Lean enterprise and Six Sigma to eliminate the different kinds of waste (muda) which are:
Lean Six Sigma is a joint venture of Lean and Six Sigma. While Lean aims to achieve continuous flow by tightening the linkages between process steps, Six Sigma focuses on reducing process variation, thereby enabling a tightening of those linkages. Just like Six Sigma, Lean Six Sigma also uses the DMAIC phases. Lean Six Sigma builds upon the 5S Lean technique used to keep the production workspace in order and the workforce committed. This 5S technique includes the 5 steps described below:
Lean Six Sigma provides expertise to it's users at various levels.
The first level in the Lean Six Sigma series is the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt. This is an introductory course that teaches delegates the basics of Lean Six Sigma.
The second stage is the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. A Green Belt is supposed to be familiar with the concepts of the Yellow Belt, however, the Green Belt covers Yellow Belt concepts within it's course content. A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certified professional is capable of handling a team of Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts.
The third phase is the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. To qualify for this stage, the delegate must be a Green Belt holder. They should also be capable of handling Green Belt Projects (at least ten of these).
The last stage is the Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt. To attain the Master Black Belt, delegates must have at least 7 years of professional experience, and a minimum of 2 years experience in executing continuous improvement projects based on Lean Six Sigma framework. The delegate should also be currently guiding continuous improvement Lean Six Sigma projects.
Delegates will become aware of DMAIC and DMADV models.
DMAIC is a cycle that depicts what happens following changes to a process. DMAIC stands for:
DMADV is the method used for development of existing products. DMADV refers to:
Define - the project purpose and problems, and customer requirements to outline project objectives
Measure - the requirements and scope of the project
Analyse - define performance goals and the impact of processes
Design - come up with specifics and achieve design authentication
Verify - test the design and come to a conclusion
