DMAIC Training Program

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (DMAIC)

ON SITEOFF SITEONLINE

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Lean Six Sigma Greenbelt is a five-day interactive course intended for organizations and individuals charged with improving process performance. It is intended to teach a structured approach to improve the quality of products and services, outcomes, and the bottom line, by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors), minimizing variability, and improving workflow in business processes. Participants can expect to be fully engaged while learning and applying principles, tools, and techniques for completing breakthrough improvement projects. Participants are expected to pass a quiz and complete a work-related project as part of this course.

The DMAIC methodology breaks down as follows:

• Define the project goals and customer requirements
• Measure the process to determine current performance
• Analyze and determine the root cause(s) of the defects
• Improve the process by eliminating defect root causes
• Control future process performance

COURSE OBJECTIVES

To provide participants the skills and abilities to increase customer satisfaction, reduce cost, increase quality, improve reliability, improve speed, while making internal processes more robust, effective, and efficient. At the end of this course you should be able to:

• List the 5 phases of DMAIC
• Define the “baseline” of the process scope
• Define “Waste” in the baseline process
• Determine where and how to collect data
• Define the value of a project “Charter”
• Define “Value Stream Mapping”
• Define the difference between “Time Analysis” and “Value Added Analysis”
• Define how to verify the cause of the problem
• Identify potential root causes
• Define criteria to verify potential causes
• Define criteria to select improvement ideas
• Define criteria to measure process improvement based on ideas
• Define measurement criteria to sustain process improvement

COURSE OUTLINE

The training will include an overview of Six Sigma and an introduction to Minitab statistical software. The training will follow the 5 DMAIC steps of: Define; Measure; Analyze; Improve; and Control. The following defines the inputs and outputs of each step:

Step One: Define

The Define Phase creates the Project Charter that includes a high-level view of the process and defining the needs of the customers. The Define Phase inputs and outputs include:

• Review Project Charter
• Define Problem Statement and Goals
• Define the Voice of the Customer and Business
• Define the project Benefits
• Define and communicate Plan
• Define Team
• Develop the Schedule

Step Two: Measure

The Measure Phase starts with establishing the current state (Baseline) of the process to determine the value of any process change. The team collects data to determine the starting point of the Baseline process and uses the data to look for clues to help identify root causes for waste or defects in the process. Detailed process maps are created as an output of the Measure Phase as a foundation step of the process. The inputs and outputs of the Measure Phase include:

• Define initial process map
• Identify Key Inputs and Metrics
• Develop Operational Definitions
• Validate Measurement System
• Develop Data Collection Plan
• Define the value of Baseline Data
• Determine Process Capability

Step Three: Analyze

The Analyze Phase reviews the collected data. Often different people collect different sets of data for review by the team. The team analysis of the data is processed to narrow down and verify the root causes of Waste and Defects. The team conducts Time Analysis, Value Added Analysis, and Value Stream Mapping to help determine where Waste can be removed from the process. Inputs and outputs of this phase include:

• Identify Potential Root Causes
• Reduce List of Potential Root Causes
• Confirm Root Causes to Output Relationship
• Estimate Impact of Root Causes on Key Inputs
• Prioritize Root Causes

Step Four: Improve

The team uses different techniques to collect improvement ideas to resolve the issues identified during the Measure Phase. The team identifies idea evaluation criteria to be able to choose between conflicting ideas. Process maps are created based on the various ideas that reduce rework loops, waste, and wait times to guide the team toward a refined process. The team conducts mini testing cycles known as “PDCA” or Plan-Do-Check-Act, which is used to refine the ideas. The inputs and outputs of the Improve Phase include:

• Develop Potential Solutions
• Evaluate, Select, and Optimize Best Solutions
• Develop “To-Be” Value Stream Map(s)
• Develop and Implement Pilot Solution
• Confirm Attainment of Project Goals
• Develop Full Scale Implementation Plan

Step Five: Control

Once it is proven the refined process has resulted in measurable improvement, the process enters the Control Phase. The Control Phase is based on sustainment of the achieved improvement and becomes part of process management. The team defines the measurements they want to maintain for ongoing monitoring to ensure the process operates at the optimum level. This phase also recommends reviews of the project results to determine if the improvements can be transferred to other areas of the business. The inputs and outputs of the Control Phase include:

• Implement Mistake Proofing
• Develop SOP’s, Training Plan, and Process Controls
• Implement Solution and Ongoing Process Measurements
• Identify Project Replication Opportunities
• Transition Project

Tools and Processes Covered During Training

Introduction to Minitab statistical software
• Project selection for Green Belts
• Project and team management tools and parameters
• Process mapping
• Introduction to analysis of measurement results
• Understanding customer requirements (CTQs)
• Supplier-Input-Process-Output-Customer (SIPOC)
• Variation – common versus special cause
• Measurement systems analysis (MSA)
• Hypothesis testing
• Process analysis
• Correlation and regression analysis
• Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
• Statistical process control (SPC)
• Control plans
• Mistake proofing
• Improvement plans and techniques
• Cultural assessment tool review
• Control strategies

COURSE PREREQUISITES

This is a Level One foundation training module and does not have required prerequisite training or experience. However, this course is a prerequisite for higher level Lean Six Sigma training and certification (Black Belt, Master Black Belt). It is recommended that the participants have access to Minitab statistical software throughout training.

COURSE RECOMMENDED PARTICIPANTS

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt operates in support of or under the supervision of a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, analyzes and solves quality problems, and is involved in quality improvement projects. A recommended Lean Six Sigma Green Belt candidate is someone with at least two years of work experience who wants to build or demonstrate his or her knowledge of Lean Six Sigma tools and processes.

This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training program is intended for all industries including but not limited to:

Commercial
Medical
Utilities
Aerospace
Consumer Lifestyle Products
Civil Engineering
Tooling and Equipment
Oil and Gas
Trains & Railroad Equipment
Military [DOD]
Government
Phones & Personal Devices
