Six Sigma Green Belt

This course is designed to certify participants in the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program.  This certification program will equip Green Belt candidates with tools required to support Lean Six Sigma process improvement projects in their organizations and ensure technical competence in the key Six Sigma disciplines.  Upon completion, students will be knowledgeable in the five stages of the DMAIC model, and be able to use fundamental process improvement tools in each stage of the Lean Six Sigma process.  As a component of the course, statistical software will be used to analyze data.  Certification is awarded upon successful completion of a comprehensive final exam and completion of a Green Belt project.  Cost of class includes student materials. Several simulations are used in the class to allow hands-on experience in using the DMAIC model and how to problem solve to determine root causes of problems.

New Production Technician Program:

Interested in obtaining employment in manufacturing? Just finished high school and want to work? A new program will begin in July, 2018 to provide training and skills to anyone interested in working in a production environment.  Students who complete the class will have an OSHA 10 hour safety certification, Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification,  First Aid/CPR and AED training, assembly training, metrology, blue print reading, fork lift safety, participate in a Lean Production Simulation and learn interviewing skills and participate in practice job interviews.  Manufacturers will conduct interviews for jobs on the final day of the three week program. Classes meet five days a week and 8 hours per day until completion of the three week program.  If you are interested, please email: dself@forsythtech.edu

The Kaizen Blitz

Let our experienced Six Sigma Black Belts lead or assist with your next Kaizen event.  You can gain foundational information needed to understand, plan and implement kaizen blitzes. Such events are opportunities to make focused improvement changes in the workplace. This multi-day, onsite training event takes participants through the critical steps in conducting a very effective kaizen event – one that is well planned, well implemented and well documented

 

Lean Production Simulation (LPS)

The Lean Production Simulation (LPS) is an 8 hour, hands-on workshop that teaches continuous improvement methods in a simulated vehicle assembly process.  Based on the concepts of the Toyota Production System, teams build or take apart truck cabs in a miniature factory setting.  Working as teams, problems are solved, and root cause issues are eliminated, while working safely and making it right the first time.  As quality and safety issues are eliminated, velocity goes up and costs go down during the three production runs.  The LPS is also a powerful teambuilding tool that unites a group, develops team problem solving skills and improves overall creativity skills. To schedule a LPS for your employees, please contact Dianne Mounce at 336.734.7732 or dmounce@forsythtech.edu
