Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma Overview

Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization (“Black Belts”, “Green Belts”, etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction or profit increase).

The term Six Sigma originated from terminology associated with manufacturing, specifically terms associated with statistical modeling of manufacturing processes. The maturity of a manufacturing process can be described by a sigma rating indicating its yield, or the percentage of defect-free products it creates. A six sigma process is one in which 99.99966% of the products manufactured are statistically expected to be free of defects (3.4 defects per million). Motorola set a goal of “six sigma” for all of its manufacturing operations, and this goal became a byword for the management and engineering practices used to achieve it.

Lean Six Sigma Tailored Training

It may be better for you to arrange Lean Six Sigma tailored training for a group of staff. If you have more than 5 delegates to train on a course it is likely to be more cost-effective. There are several benefits which can achieved from this option including:

  • Training is at a venue of your choice (considerable cost savings can arise from using your own venue)
  • Delegates do not need to travel long distances or stay away from home
  • Training can be tailored to suit your company terminology, environment and culture
  • Dates can be arranged at your convenience
  • PMWEB can run any of its training courses at your own venue or somewhere close to your organization.

What are the costs?

PMWEB can provide you with a breakdown of costs for your course, including details of:

  • A “per delegate” fee for manuals, registration fees, exams
  • Daily trainer rate
  • Expenses – trainer accommodation and travel

As an example, assuming that a course is held at your venue in the UK, a 5-day Six Sigma course for 5 delegates can work out as little as £1,000 per delegate.  These costs will vary due to location.

We may sometimes be beaten on price but we won’t be beaten on quality.

Please contact PMWEB for more information or a quotation for a Lean Six Sigma tailored training course.
