Lean Six Sigma

This project includes a complete course design for teaching the course with related learning materials. It also includes a sample schedule for delivering the course. **** In LEAN SIX SIGMA learners will examine two models of problem solving/continuous improvement (the PDCA/PDSA and the DMAIC models). Learners will utilize an A3 report to identify the current process condition, identify improvement goals, establish root causes, specify improvement activities, and confirm results. Learners will utilize the seven SPC (Statistical Process Control) tools and selected Quality Management Tools in the improvement process. Learners will examine the steps of planning and executing a Kaizen Event as well as supporting daily Kaizen activities.
