Green Belt Fall Graduation

Moraine Park’s Six Sigma Green Belt training is a comprehensive and flexible system for achieving and sustaining results. Organizations that deploy Six Sigma methodology within their business are able to improve processes, eliminate defects and enhance satisfaction to drive bottom-line results. Participating companies who recently completed Six Sigma Green Belt projects reduced errors within their operations, yielding an immediate return on their organization’s training dollar. On Thursday, January 23, 2020 the Six Sigma Green Belt Fall 2019 class presented their final project results which is estimated to have a combined saving of over $1 million in revenue to their companies through waste reduction, improved process and increased production.

Five participants from the manufacturing and health care industry received their certifications upon successfully completing the program. The program participants included Josh Smith a Quality Resources Analyst at Grande Cheese Company, Kimberly Collins an Operations Support Specialist at Regalware, Ann-Liese Ellis a Nursing Supervisor at Marshfield Clinic, Angela Heinbuch a RN in the Quality Department at Marshfield Clinic, and Joshua Eastman a Quality Engineer at Gateway Plastics. The ceremony took place on the Moraine Park Technical College Fond du Lac Campus with business representatives, sponsors and project champions present.

The participants completed 88 hours of class time and additional time working on their independent projects which included developing a project team, collecting and analyzing data in an effort to reduce waste, eliminate re-work and improve customer satisfaction through product improvements. The return on the investment from these project resulted in over $1 million dollars in hard savings which averaged with projected opportunity to continue the saving as the projects are fully implemented and scaled.
