You've heard the glowing reports of how giants like GE, NASCAR, and Toyota have implemented "process improvement" tools (e.g., Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, CEM, etc.) to streamline their operations and reduce costs…but what exactly are they talking about? What are Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, and the rest of the tools? And how can you apply these to your operations and reap the benefits?
Join Neal Bolton for the first session in our 4-session Process Improvement for Solid Waste Facilities Master Class Series to answer the question "what is process improvement?", and explore the different analytical tools (e.g., Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Value Stream Mapping, CEM, etc.) and how these can be applied to improve your operations.
In this presentation, we'll explore what process improvement is and what makes it tick. Within this discussion, we'll examine real-world applications, and how you can apply process improvement tools to your operations to better evaluate your current processes and activities, identify in detail what's working and what isn't, and develop streamlined processes and practices to improve your operations. We'll also review the different types of process improvement tools (e.g., Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Value Stream Mapping, CEM, etc.) and the elements and applications of each. And finally, we'll address how the same process improvement techniques that make Wall Street Journal news for international mega-corporations can also be implemented in your waste operations to increase your efficiency and reduce your costs whether you're involved in collection, landfills and disposal, or diversion and recycling.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:
- Understand the origin and concept of process improvement
- Learn the key steps of DMAIC
- Identify and understand the most common tools used for process improvement
- Learn how process improvement applies to the solid waste industry
