Very pleased with the Six Sigma training support we have received from TMEP for the Black and Green Belt classes he has conducted for us. The consultants industry experience and knowledge of the Six Sigma tools & methodology were well received by our employees and have resulted in significant improvements in our business leading to improved profitability.
A TMEP Six Sigma consultant provided Green Belt training for 20 employees. The GB training consisted of 80 hours of training for each participant. The training was conducted on site at Mohawk facilitates and included a mix of traditional instructor led lecture and hands on practice with the statistical software required to properly implement a Six Sigma program. The training covered the DMAIC process, basic statistical functions, root cause analysis, problem solving, and the principles of lean manufacturing. In order to receive certification, each Green Belt candidate was required to complete a project identifying a pre determined amount of cost savings. Candidates were coached throughout the project implementation process by the TMEP consultant and the Mohawk champion. After completing Green Belt certification, the candidates completed an additional ninety six hours of in-depth training and project implementation to achieve Black Belt certification.
