This program, entitled Six Sigma Lean Professional (SSLP)™, is designed to give the student a solid understanding of both Lean and Six Sigma principles and will teach you how to effectively work with Lean principles. These methods work well in a manufacturing environment and are also popular in industries like healthcare, logistics, and government.
Lean is generally referred to as a manufacturing or production improvement methodology. As a term in business, it has a broad-based customer focus that concentrates on providing more to the customer.
It does this by supplying the product that is just what the customer needs – when needed – in just the right amounts and for the right price. It uses the minimum materials, equipment, workspace, labor resources, and time needed. The whole concept of Lean is focused on the removal of any unnecessary waste from the production process. It focuses on producing a high quality output.
Projects working in a lean manufacturing environment don’t generally have a “belt” assigned to their certification, which is why this certification only includes Lean and Six Sigma in the title. If you are looking for a specific belt level, we recommend our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt or Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.
