Description Course Outline Requirements Intended Audience More Details
Intended Audience
Green Belts include individuals with diverse technical, operational and/or transactional backgrounds. Natural candidates to become Green Belts are people whose current positions are routinely associated with or directed at problem solving. Individuals identified for this intense training should be those who will be expected to become continuous process improvement team members.
Description
In this training, students will work with detailed Value Stream Maps and identify areas of waste, with an in-depth look at the sources of defects and associated quality issues. They will apply Lean Six Sigma tools – including statistical analysis – to reduce waste and verify effectiveness. This course includes interactive simulations, small groups, and a comprehensive, real-world project for certification as a Green Belt.
Course Objectives
  1. Be able to function as part-time members of Lean Six Sigma process improvement action teams within their functional areas.
  2. Work under the supervision and mentorship of a Black Belt.
  3. May be associate team leaders in a closely scoped project or sub-project.
  4. In less complex organizations, Green Belts may lead process improvement efforts.
Outline of Instruction
  1. Apply DMAIC methodology to organize project thinking and work
  2. Apply the DMAIC methodology using lean tools and graphical data analysis tools
  3. Develop and communicate a Project Charter
  4. Apply basic project management skills to identify and manage tasks
  5. Construct high level process maps (SIPOC)
  6. Capture Voice of the Customer (VOC) and convert into measureable Critical to Quality (CTQ) Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s)
  7. Understand of Measurement System Analysis (MSA)
  8. Compare the process to specifications using Capability Analysis (Cp, CPk)
  9. Develop data collection plans
  10. Use Pareto Charts to rank categories and apply the 80/20 rule
  11. Construct Run Charts, Scatter Plots, Box Plots, Bar Charts, Multi-Vari Charts and Histograms to identify process trends and sources of variation
  12. Construct Cycle Time ( Line Balance) charts
  13. Compute Takt time and assess work-load balance
  14. Understand the role of statistics to model and predict real processes
  15. Calculate descriptive statistics of a data set
  16. Determine if a data set is normally distributed
  17. Understand the concept of statistical probability (P-value) using Standard Normal, Z, statistics
  18. Evaluate statistical correlation between two variables
  19. Describe the Y=f(X’s) concept of modeling inputs and outputs
  20. Model input/output relationships using Regression analysis
  21. Compare process means and proportions
  22. Describe the purpose and benefits of Design of Experiment (DOE)
  23. Construct basic DOE designs
  24. Understand the basics of Statistical Process Control (SPC) Chart construction
  25. Interpret SPC charts
  26. Develop control plans
  27. Implement Visual Controls
  28. Implement TPM practices to improve process reliability
  29. Establish and document standard work
