(Approximately 75 to 90 minutes)
This webinar focuses on introducing a basic framework for process problem solving. We’ll cover a set of simple tools to solve common process problems without any special software or sophisticated Lean Six Sigma training. You don’t need a complete Lean Six Sigma project for every problem, but some of the tools and principles can be valuable. We’ll study real-life case examples where these tools have been used to save hundreds of thousands of dollars and give you ideas for immediate on-the-job application.
Unplanned delays, incorrect or missing information, poor quality materials, broken down machines – any single instance can be over looked, but repeat occurrences add up over time and end up wasting time and costing real money. Attacking these process problems and addressing their causes will not only save your company real money, it will lead to happier employees and more satisfied customers.
