The Manufacturing Institute’s Six Sigma Green Belt course helps equip manufacturers with the tools to implement cost savings of up to GBP100,000.

It is targeted at manufacturers who find they are making too many products that are rejected under quality control, using too much raw material and producing too much scrap at start-up.

Six Sigma, originally developed by US electronics company Motorola, has become the adopted strategy for manufacturing businesses to improve the quality of their production through the identification and removal of defect causes and the minimising or, in some cases, elimination of those processes that may cause a variability in output.

By guiding the business through the six Sigma ‘levels’ of increasing percentage product yield, by the time they reach Sigma level 6, the manufacturer will be producing 99.99 per cent right-first-time products.

With some business starting from a low as 31 per cent right first time, this means reduced rejection and waste, and proportionally increased yield – resulting in an increase in bottom-line profit.

The Manufacturing Institute’s 2011 Six Sigma Green Belt Course, in two blocks of five days, takes place during the weeks beginning 24 January and 7 February respectively.

Run by qualified practitioners and offering real-life case studies supported by mentoring facilities, the course is aimed at improvement team leaders and members in production, manufacturing, works and operations.
