The 7 Basic Quality Control Tools + 2, Day 2 of 4

June 20, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0

  • Are you looking to get solutions to problems as they occur and on the spot?
  • Trying to find ways to engage the entire workforce?
  • Want to leverage the skills and talents of the people doing the work?
  • Have a desire to develop in-house facilitators for problem solving but not quite ready for Six Sigma?

Program Overview:

These 7 Basic Quality Control tools +2 are the foundation for building a culture of immediate problem solving.  Many of the daily issues that occur on the shop floor can benefit from a more simplistic solution.   Identify the possible fixes, prioritize, implement the easy ones, and go back to work.  Armed with these basic tools, front line personnel will be able to have an immediate impact on getting things back on track.  The tools are also perfect for establishing a baseline, gaining consensus, diving deeper into the root cause, and monitoring the effectiveness of the implemented solutions.  Armed with a knowledge of which tools are best for the situation (Following the PDCA cycle), how to lead a team in using them and how to interpret the results will give the facilitators a powerful skill to keep your company on a continuous improvement path.

Sessions will consist of classroom learning and hands-on practice using the tools.
