Assisting manufacturers to be more productive- reduce start up times, increase the speed of changeovers, reduce scrap, improve on time delivery and reduce variation and quality issues.
Many organizations are relying on inspecting in quality instead of controlling the process.
Many production lines are managed by employees who have many years of experience but with varying opinions on how to manage product quality. Typically, each shift adjusts the machine settings based on their own feel for the process instead of on scientific knowledge. This "Tampering" causes excessive variation and reduced quality levels.
Strategies for manufacturers include:
We assist you in implementing a Quality Management System based on the following standards:
The Black and Green Belt Training utilizes the Blended Learning method which utilizes on line training through Moresteam.com and hands on workshops.
A Master Black Belt will mentor you One-on-One through the tools and completion of two projects (one lean and one six sigma). This course usually takes about 8 months to complete and obtain certification.
The Yellow Belt 8 Hour Workshop takes you through the basic DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) framework and problem solving process.
You will begin to build a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) toolkit that will help you both in your job and in discussions about cost saving projects.
You will learn about waste and variation, why they are a problem in an organization and how to reduce them.
The specific learning objectives are designed to help you to not only become aware of LSS, but also to become familiar with the practical application of the tools you’ll learn about.
During the Yellow Belt workshop, you’ll learn several basic tools which are the foundations of any successful DMAIC project. These tools include the following:
We also provide training in many of the Quality Tools (tailored to your organization!)
Some of the General training that we provide:
We work with manufacturers to reduce the variation and waste of their products. These operations are more of an Art than Science.
Many companies have been focused on regulatory and safety but not Operational Excellence. We have found a significant gap in process and variation knowledge in these organizations.
Improvement Projects are found in the following areas:
We assist organizations in streamlining their operations and reduce waste and redundancy by utilizing the latest Lean Manufacturing methods.
Companies and organizations are realizing that they need to reduce waste in their processes to better serve their customers and clients.
Many processes are inefficient and are not documented, managed or improved. These complex processes lead to frustration and loss of profits for businesses.
We conduct Process Mapping of the current state and brainstorm ideas with your team to improve the process.
Some strategies include the following;
