As a Lean Six Sigma improvement team moves into the Improve phase of a DMAIC project, it begins to generate a list of solutions to address process problems. Lean offers several techniques to reduce waste and cycle time, as well as improvement tools such as kaizen, theory of constraints, and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). After appropriate methods and tools are used and solutions developed, the implementation of proposed solutions needs to be tested and verified to ensure that optimal choices are made. This course looks at some of the popular Lean methods and implementation planning in Six Sigma. It examines Lean tools used for reducing waste and cycle time, and the Japanese principles of continuous improvement - kaizen and kaizen blitz. It also looks at some other process improvement methodologies such as theory of constraints and OEE. Finally, the course examines planning for proposed solutions, including conducting pilot tests and simulations. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.
