PROCESS EXCELLENCE and SIX SIGMA
2 days course
Prerequisites : CPIM certified or equivalent knowledge
DMAIC project methodology
- Process flow mapping
- Cause and Effect analysis
In this course we explore Six Sigma in more detail. Starting with the structured approach we will guide you through the 5 basic steps in Six Sigma :
- Control (DMAIC)
We explore different tools which we can use in the different phases of the DMAIC method. Popular tools are Process flow mapping, Fishbone diagram, FMEA, Cause and effect diagram and much more. The different tools will be explained and more important, they will be placed in the right sequence. In this module we also combining the statistical approach combined with practical experience and give you some tips to start implementing (or improve) Six Sigma in your own company.
This course provides you with the necessary insight and tools to detect where you can make the biggest leap forward in your operations and supply chain. The lean and six sigma approach has been assimilated over the last decades to enable you to detect opportunities and transform them into real improvements, as fast and as effective as possible. During the program you will learn about the tool set, the roadmap and philosophy. In this course we explore Six Sigma in more detail.
Starting with the structured approach we will guide you through the 5 basic steps in Six Sigma : Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC). We explore different tools which we can use in the different phases of the DMAIC method. Popular tools are Gage R&R, Process flow mapping, Process Capability analysis, Fishbone diagram, FMEA, Cause and effect diagram, ANOVA and much more. The different tools will be explained and more important, they will be placed in the right sequence. In this module we also combine the statistical approach with practical experience and give you some tips to start implementing (or improve) Six Sigma in your own company.
LIFE IS A SCHOOL OF PROBABILITY’ – Walter Bagehot
- The most commonly used six sigma roadmap will be demonstrated: Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control. The strength of these logical steps prove to be extremely useful in executing projects both for individuals frequently involved in project work as for individuals less at ease in a project environment. One of the main objectives is to transfer this logic to the participants.
- Process flow mapping
- Not merely process mapping will be addressed but also how you can add value to your process map by adding important information like cycle time, batch size,… Examples of these process and value stream maps will be provided and discussed.
- Process Capability analysis
- How well does your process answer the requirements of your customers? This tool will help you identify your current process performance, typical for a six sigma environment.
- Tools : Fishbone, FMEA, Cause and effect diagram
- In the Improve phase is a crucial phase to bring your project to a successful end. Tools like a fishbone diagram or Ishikawa, FMEA or Cause and effect diagrams can help you identify where the improvement opportunities can be found.
- Six Sigma and statistics
- Typical in six sigma is the pragmatic use of statistics to prove relationships between variables and help to define improvement actions. Have you ever wondered whether a certain warehouse or production shift really outperforms the others? We will show you how to collect the hard, statistical evidence, required for to create the buy-in in the improvement phase, in a very pragmatic manner.
- Lean Physics
- Lean Physics tries to underpin many common sense ideas which arise in the lean and six sigma spectrum. Academic research pointed out that the ‘level of lean’ can be quantified and underscored with hard numbers, if the appropriate modeling effort is undertaken. Moreover, we can illustrate this with examples from lean physics projects conducted in various industries, including services and non-profit organizations.
