TMAC’s Lean Six Sigma Program provides a systematic approach to combine the waste elimination methods of Lean with the variation reduction toolset of Six Sigma. The DMAIC process provides the overarching structure for project management, which helps ensure that solutions are sustainable. Students learn through a combination of lecture, student project presentations, exercises, case studies, and simulations. Instructors emphasize practical application of tools and methods. The median payback for TMAC Black Belt projects is $150,000/year.
The LSS Black Belt class is a rigorous course incorporating both Basic and Advanced problem-solving methods. A partial list of tools covered includes value stream mapping, Little’s Law, measurement system analysis, process control & capability, hypothesis testing, kaizen, pull systems, regression, setup reduction, process balancing, and design of experiments.
This program is offered by the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC), a program of Southwest Research Institute.
