Black Belt manufacturing

Lean Six Sigma Industry experts who design robust processes

Variation. Production processes are full of it. Variation in output, variations in customer demand and variations in the quality of raw materials. You know variation costs money, but reducing it is not simple. A rigorous research plan, data, and advanced analytics can help you find the causes of variation and eliminate them. If you are responsible or would like to be, for the quality of the production processes, then you really can’t do without Lean Six Sigma knowledge.

Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course for industry

With this course, you will learn to achieve statistically substantiated improvements. The course also delves deeper into designing processes from scratch using Lean Six Sigma methods and tools. The 10-day Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Manufacturing course is the most comprehensive Black Belt course in our offer. The course consists out of 2 days of Lean theory, 6 days of Six Sigma DMAIC project structure and 2 additional days covering Design of Experiments (DoE) and Measurement System Analysis (MSA).

After course you will be capable of reducing the variation in industrial processes in a structured and project-based manner. With Lean Six Sigma you create solid, high quality processes. With Lean Six Sigma projects you work, amongst other things, on the percentage of rejects and re-work. By doing this, you also reduce the operational costs and therefore your projects contribute to strengthening the competitive position.

  • to successfully implement a defined solution within an organisation in the service industry and industrial sector.

After successfully completing the exam you will receive the internationally recognised Lean Six Sigma Black Belt theoretical certificate. After completion of your practical assignment you will receive the practical certificate and you will be a practical certified Black Belt.

Part 1 - Lean Thinking

Two-day course covering Lean Techniques such as:

  • The 5 principles of Womack
  • The 7 wastes
  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Improvement tools

These days have been set up around a simulation which runs as a guideline through the course.

Part 2 - Six Sigma

The next 6 days will cover the Six Sigma project structure and associated techniques. The main thrust of these days are:

  • Background of Six Sigma
  • Define phase: Selecting a project and determine customer demand
  • Basic statistics
  • Measure phase:Determine critical impact factors
  • Analyse phase: Root causes and analyzing data
  • Hypothesis Testing
  • Improvement phase: Generating solutions and piloting
  • Control phase: Control plan and project closure

Part 3 - DoE and MSA

The last two days are focusing on more advanced statistical tools that are often used in industrial working environment, such as:. 

  • Design of Experiments
  • Measurement System Analyses

Part 4 - Practical Assignment

After passing theory exam, you are expected to complete your practical assignment. Under the guidance of your Master Black Belt you should complete a project that will have improved process according to the Lean Six Sigma standards as a result. Such project usually delivers hard benefits in the range of $50.000 to $1,000.000.

ISO18404

Process improvement is a profession and a skill. To successfully improve processes with Lean Six Sigma various competencies are a must. The organisation that determines the international standards, the ISO,  has set the standard of competencies needed to fill the critical roles within a Lean Six Sigma organisation. The roles they have defined are:

  • Lean Practitioner

  • Lean Leader

  • Lean Expert

  • Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

  • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

  • Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

The Lean Six Sigma Company has used the ISO 18404 as a starting point when developing the courses. For this reason, each course consists of a theoretical part and a practical part. Competencies and skills can only be shown in practice. Our certification criteria derive from the ISO standard so we can assure ourselves of the fact that participants who received their certification through us have the required competencies to help organizations with Lean Six Sigma.

Lean Six Sigma in your company

Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organizational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organizational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction, and customer satisfaction. 

Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organization is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organization.
