SFMA #1 Resource For Manufacturers






South Florida 


This live-virtual online course follows the Define/Measure/Analyze/Improve/Control (DMAIC) format. This course focuses on Lean’s process efficiency concepts and tools (productivity) and reducing processing or service cost without affected customer performance. This 24-hour training consists of 40+ modules / lessons, a pre and post-course survey, case studies, and a closed book exam. To get certified, the participants must successfully complete a project, which will benefit their organization with immediate results.

NOTE: Participants in this course are required to have either completed the Lean 101: Introduction to Lean course, or have foundational knowledge of Lean Manufacturing / Process Improvement concepts.

Any organization that intends to thrive in the 21st century must continually be looking inward and at their operating costs. A Yellow Belt is trained to be on the constant hunt for waste and opportunities for cost reductions. It is these “wastes” that negatively affects every organization’s bottom line. Participants in this program will learn:
