Operations Management Trainee Blog Week 6 2016

Last week the Operation Management Trainees got to work with the Lean Six Sigma Institute (LSSI) on Yellow Belt Training. This type of training focuses on the lean systems, which is used to maximize efficiency and minimize waste. Our leader, Eduardo, taught us the importance of these tools. More importantly, he also taught us how to implement them.

The types of systems learned were Kaizen, Kanban, Gemba, Poka Yoke, and 5S. LSSI has proven success stories from using these systems, so we were able to look at real cases and cost saving examples. We also used different activities to demonstrate where problems could arise and about the system’s theory works. Overall, it will be very helpful to know how to identify the waste and solve the issue using this tool. We are excited to use the tools in our projects beginning next week!
