Our alumni talk about Six Sigma :
Prior to taking the six sigma training, I collected vast amounts of data across several product lines and shifts. This data could be difficult to navigate and I wasn't completely sure if the information gathered was the most critical to help increase efficiency. My black belt project utilized this data, and with the training and help of the instructors, I was able to clearly identify problems. Using previous data as a baseline, I was then able to experiment with multiple theories as to how and reduce waste, cost, and increase efficiency. These gains were not theoretical. The results of this one black belt project equated to over $100,000 in savings in scrap and rework cost and led us as a company to make changes in multiple policies. All of these gains were only attainable after learning how to interpret and utilize the data that was already available.
