Purdue MEP’s Six Sigma Green Belts are trained in a subset of Black Belt tools and methodologies. Green Belts assist Black Belts with major projects and can independently lead minor projects. At many companies, Green Belts have a part-time continuous improvement role. Participants will leave the training with a thorough understanding of the DMAIC process, data collection techniques, and the statistical methods used in Six Sigma projects.

PRINCIPLES OF VALUE STREAM MAPPING
OCTOBER 18  |  8 AM to 4 PM  |  $295  |  20 seats
Southern Indiana Career & Tech Center – East Side of Assembly Hall, 901 Lynch Road, Evansville, IN 47711
In this course, you will learn how to create a value stream map (VSM) of current-state and future-state processes. Value stream mapping is a lean technique that allows you to document, analyze, and improve the events that take a product or service from its beginning through to the customer. This technique helps the manufacturer understand the total flow of the value stream, see the sources of waste, determine common language about the process, show links between information and processes, develop an improvement plan, and prioritize activities. Through creation of a VSM, you will learn how to eliminate the waste in the system and achieve dramatic improvements to your processes.
