The choices you make in design determine your fate in manufacturing. Integrated Product and Production Development (IPPD) goes well beyond simple design for manufacturing into the realm of concurrent engineering. IPPD techniques align everything from design intent through saleable production to ensure that processes are scalable, repeatable, in-control and all decisions maximize the benefit to your company.Show similar events in:
These courses will allow all attendees to participate in interactive exercises that demonstrate in a practical manner the application of basic Six Sigma principles and problem-solving tools. The application of these improvement techniques applies equally to the plant or office, whether service or manufacturing. Consider bringing a laptop to the workshops. Participants who would like an introductory overview of Six Sigma principles should take the Intro to 6 Sigma workshop prior to attending Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.

This introductory overview course will allow attendees to participate in interactive exercises that demonstrate the application of 6 Sigma principles and the interaction of Lean tools. These improvement techniques apply equally to the plant or to the office, in service or manufacturing. In addition to qualifying as an elective workshop in our Lean Practitioner Certification, this workshop is recommended for those who want an introductory course prior to enrolling in our 6 Sigma Green Belt Certification.Show similar events in:
In this workshop, you will learn two different tools for improving new and existing designs: FMEA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate a design and determine potential negative effects, prioritize the effects by quantifying their magnitude, and identify and implement actions to address the effects. DFMA will enable a cross-functional team to evaluate components to ensure they are manufacturable, evaluate parts to ensure they are “necessary,” and evaluate the characteristics of an assembly: part-to-operator interface, part-to-part interface, fastening methodology, non-value steps.
As a Lean tool, A3 reporting addresses the root causes of problems that arise every day at work. When used properly, the A3 process dramatically increases the probability of success. Leading companies, such as Toyota, to use the A3 report to train engineers, supervisors and managers in a proven and structured problem-solving approach.Show similar events in:
“Without Standard Work, there can be no improvement.” This statement is a central truth of the Toyota Production System. Standard work defines the current best work process. It is the baseline for continuous improvement and is a tool used in auditing processes. Therefore, conformance to standard work contributes to the results you need to stay competitive, but is something we really don’t want to do. Until you can apply repeatable standard work successfully, improvements will yield less than their full potential and backsliding will be prevalent.Show similar events in:
