    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 root 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 training for manufacturing

    With this training you will learn to achieve statistically significant improvements. The training also dives deeper into designing processes from scratch. This 10-day Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course is the most comprehensive Black Belt training in our offer. The training consists of 2 days of Lean theory, 6 days of Six Sigma DMAIC project structure and 2 additional days of Design of Experiments (DoE) and Measure System Analysis (MSA).

    After the course you will be able to conduct high complexity Black Belt projects that require DoE approach.

    You will find more detailed information such as the program and competency overview in our prospectus.

    The theoretical part of the course consists of a two-day Lean module and an 8-day Six Sigma module.

    In addition to studying the theory, you will need to implement your knowledge and bring an improvement project to a successful conclusion. At the start of your assignment, the Master Black Belt will determine if your project is appropriate for this Black Belt training. The criteria on which the performance of the practical assignment will be assessed are based on international standards.


    Part 1 - Lean Thinking

    Two-day course covering Lean Techniques such as:

    • The 5 principles of Womack
    • The 7 wastes
    • Value Stream Mapping
    • Multiple improvement techniques

    These two days are set up around a simulation. 

    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.

    Our courses follow this standard and adhere to the competencies described therein.

    With its origins dating back to the 80’s, Lean Six Sigma is truly a well proven and globally recognised methodology in process improvement.

    Nevertheless, there was often some ambiguity surrounding the qualifications in Six Sigma, Lean and Lean Six Sigma.

    For example, if an organisation advertised for a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, how could they be sure of the level of ability of a ‘Black Belt’? If a supplier said it had deployed Six Sigma or Lean, how could a customer be sure of their real capabilities?

    It is exactly for this reason ‘The International Organization for Standardization’ (ISO) defined a universal standard for Lean Six Sigma in ISO 18404.

    This International Standard for Lean Six Sigma sets out to clarify the required competencies for personnel and organisations in Six Sigma, Lean and ‘Lean & Six Sigma’. In doing so, it has created clarity for what third parties can expect from Lean Six Sigma professionals.

    As our courses adhere to this international standard, the company looking for a Black Belt in the example above, can now be sure what competencies to expect from a Lean Six Sigma Black  Belt certified by The Lean Six Sigma Company.

    The Lean Six Sigma Company courses adhere to the ISO18404 standard which defines the competencies for the following Lean Six Sigma professionals:

    • Lean Practitioner

    • Lean Leader

    • Lean Expert

    • Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

    • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

    • Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

    Our certification criteria are directly derived from the ISO standard. Participants who completed the course, fullfill internationally recognised and objective requirements (ISO18404), which may be expected from Lean Six Sigma professionals.

    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.
