A client known in the industry as a leading Lean manufacturer needs a well-trained, functional Team of Six Sigma problem solvers.
Advanced Process Optimization guided the selection of the projects for the Team. We planned to visit four of the locations in the United States and Mexico to train and work the projects while on site as a Team. APO’s trainer, Jason Merschat, created a challenging course and schedule, but acted as a mentor and safety net for the students to bounce issues off of and seek guidance throughout the multi-week learning journey.
The Team returned over $500,000 in value to the company across both manufacturing and distribution functional units. This was the first of an expected series of training which will include Lean, Six Sigma, 8D and other problem solving and skills development initiatives.
