About Lean Six Sigma: Lean Six Sigma is a business and data-driven approach to reducing waste, and minimizing defects and variability in all types of processes, from manufacturing to administrative. It incorporates Lean philosophies with Six Sigma methodology and focuses on the reduction of waste, and increased profitability and customer satisfaction. The Lean Six Sigma methodology uses the DMAIC approach (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control). It is a method used by organizations to more effectively and efficiently meet the needs of their customers.
Companies are achieving astounding results by implementing a Lean system in their businesses: reduced inventories, and lead-times, improved delivery performance and fill-rates, increased throughput and productivity, lower operating costs, and improved margins. Your company can be more efficient and more profitable.
Services: Depending on your needs and level of learning you’d like, we’ll tailor our curriculum to your organization. Most organizations will have an overview of what Six Sigma is and go through our training program titled, “Facilitating the Change to a Lean culture” In this program we’ll provide your staff with the tools and training to become change agents in your organization. Utilizing Lean concepts such as DMAIC, TPM, OEE, 5S, kaizen, value stream mapping and others, we’ll drive through hands-on processes to show participants the processes, methods and benefits of using Lean Six Sigma in your organization.
Our goal: is to give your company the tools to pursue systematic elimination of waste so you can be more competitive in the marketplace.
The end result: will be a group of educated employees with knowledge and skills to implement Lean Six Sigma projects and become change agents in their own organizations.
“After recognizing we needed a change in our processes and practices Thermaline turned to Kocer Consulting + Engineering for help. The KC+E team had a “hands on“, “part of the team“ approach. They worked side by side with every member of the Thermaline transition team, both in the office and rolling up their sleeves with the shop floor personnel.
Not only did KC+E guide us on our lean journey but played a vital role in changing our cultural landscape. They fostered creativity and made sure everyone had a clear understanding of our new processes.
As a result of working with the KC+E team we were able to transform to lean manufacturing in a short period of time and quickly reach our goals.
a) Deliver products to customer in 3 days – previously 45-50 days
b) Improve profitability – 2.5% to 12%
c) Increase capacity without hiring more people
d) Decrease overtime and eliminate manufacturing chaos
e) KPl’s that make sense
f) Create a visual factory floor, reduce set up times and implement a 5-S program
g) “Buy in“ from EVERY employee
KC+E did not have the typical “do it my way“ consulting approach. They were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend the services of KC+E.“
