In the Improve stage of the Six Sigma DMAIC process, you will use the Lean and Lean Six Sigma tool set to find ideas to help facilitate business process improvement. That will help you resolve process problems that you've identified in an earlier stage. And this in turn will help drive process improvement, process control, and process design. In this course, you'll learn about the key tools, such as cycle-time reduction, continuous flow, setup reduction, kaizen, kaizen blitz, and other Lean tools, that lead to continuous improvement. The course is aligned with ASQ's 2015 Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • calculate cycle time and takt time, given a scenario
    recognize the benefits of cycle time reduction
    identify characteristics of the continuous flow approach to cycle time reduction

  • sequence the core steps of the single-minute exchange of dies (SMED) method
    determine the appropriate type of kaizen event for a given project
    recognize examples of activities typically performed during each day of a kaizen blitz
    recognize activities a team carries out while implementing kaizen in an organization
