Over 30 participants received a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate at the Inaugural Alabama Lean Six Sigma Conference in Huntsville, AL. Lean Six Sigma practitioners from the Office of Operational Excellence of the University of Alabama in Huntsville provided the half-day course where participants learned the basic concepts of Lean and Six Sigma and how these concepts can be applied to achieve continuous improvement. The discussion included concepts such as continuous flow, 5S, value streaming, quick changeover, pull/kanban, and total productive maintenance. The course included hands-on simulations where the participants applied the concepts and learned how to utilize the tools.

Participants in the course were from a wide range of industries including electronics manufactures, aerospace and defense organizations, healthcare professionals and graduate and undergraduate students in business, nursing and engineering.

What participants are saying:

The hands-on assembly in the Tube Factory was so relevant to this training! It allowed immediate practical application to the discussed material.

Instructors made the PDCA and DMAIC concepts relatable.

These are all great concepts that I will use in the near future.
