SIX SIGMA TRAINING HELPS STREAMLINE BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY PROCESSES; FALL PROGRAMS STARTING IN AUGUST AT LCCC

Six Sigma is a tool that can be used by business and industry to streamline processes and ensure quality results while reducing costs. This tool, when combined with the “voice of the customer,” allows a company to achieve huge increases in productivity and customer satisfaction.

Green and Black Belt Six Sigma training starts August 19 at Lorain County Community College’s Six Sigma and Lean Institute.

“You can save 10 times the cost of the class,” said instructor Dan Sommers. “You can’t afford not to send someone to Six Sigma training.”

Benefits of instituting Six Sigma processes include reducing scrap, reducing downtime, reducing returns, reducing rework and shortening the work cycle time, he noted.

“In a world that's demanding speed and quality from business and industry, the implementation of Six Sigma and Lean principles can help companies achieve both while meeting customers' needs,” Sommers said. 

Six Sigma Black Belt training at LCCC provided Joe Stilla, Design Engineer with Parker Hannifin the skills and knowledge to see a return on the training investment.

“I implement my training daily,” Stilla said. “Using troubleshooting tactics to analyzing data, the training has improved my ability to solve problems and clearly work through a problem. This has led to improved production.”
