Six Sigma Training
Six Sigma, developed by Motorola and made famous by GE, is a statistical set of tools used to focus on variance reduction thereby eliminating noise factors. Improving quality, and ultimately providing financial benefits, Six Sigma employs a disciplined methodology which provides a measure of process capability.
Lean Six Sigma Training
In Today’s dynamic marketplace, customers are demanding higher quality, faster service, and lower prices, while shareholders are expecting larger profits. How do you effectively secure your organization’s long-term competitive advantage? VRI’s Lean Six Sigma program will teach you how to implement both Lean and Six Sigma to streamline your business processes, enhance your customer service, and improve your bottom line.
Design for Lean Six Sigma (DfLSS)
Over the last decade, Six Sigma and Lean have been integrated and have generated tremendous success world-wide. While the traditional Lean Six Sigma strategy of DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve & Control) is a methodology that fixes existing processes, the DfLSS strategy of IDOV (Identify, Design, Optimize & Validate) is used to build and deliver new processes which will operate at Six Sigma quality levels.
Customer Focus Workshop
To be competitive businesses must deliver what customers want. This is a simple but often ignored axiom – we often assume we know what they want. The key to achieving high levels of customer loyalty while achieving aggressive corporate goals is to understand the voice of the customer and how it drives higher market share, improved operating margins, higher quality levels and shorter lead times.
Statistical Process ControlStatistical Process Control deals with giving people tools to measure the voice of the customer and the business with a major focus to measure the voice of the process. There are a variety of people that should be trained in this area. We suggest Production Floor Staff and Management, as well as all of Quality Control employees and Engineers.
Design of Experiments (DOE)
All levels of an organization can benefit from Design of Experiments Training. DOE will provide participants a basic understanding of the DMAIC roadmap, however most of the course will focus on the Improve Phase, looking for the best input settings to achieve the required output result.
Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Failure Modes & Effects Analysis is focused on new implementations or change of existing designs and processes. This one-day course focuses on how to develop a methodology for finding and eliminating problems before they occur.
With a process control focus, participants of the Control Charting Basic Training should consist of managers, supervisors and team leaders who need to learn how to implement quality measures in order to increase quality within their organization.
Measurement System Analysis (MSA)
MSA training is used to determine if a measurement system can generate accurate data, and if the accuracy is adequate to achieve your objectives, therefore participants should comprise of engineers, quality professionals, supervisors and metrology technicians.
At VRI, we take pride in the experience, breadth and depth of our educational training and are pleased to provide this experience with one-on-one training specific to your organizations needs.
