Overview/Description
Lean is a continuous improvement initiative that streamlines processes and improves overall performance by identifying and eliminating waste and non-value-added activities. This course shows you how to use Lean tools, such as 5S, the eight wastes, and value stream analysis to identify and eliminate waste in service and manufacturing processes. You will also learn how to conduct a Failure Mode and Effects analysis (FMEA), which is a technique used to identify potential failures in a process and assess the risk they pose. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Yellow Belt candidates toward their certification and also to become productive members on their Six Sigma project teams. |

Target Audience
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification and any other individuals involved in quality and process improvement at the organizational or departmental level
