Medeco and Arrow Employees Learn Six Sigma

During the class, mornings were spent learning the principles of Six Sigma in detail and afternoons entailed a six sigma improvement project simulation. Additionally, small teams were developed to choose a current process within their daily work and develop a potential improvement plan. During the project simulation, the employees were divided into two teams to do research, develop a solution, and present it to a mock company president. Both teams were praised and awarded for their efforts.

In addition to taking the class and learning the principles of Six Sigma, most participants sat for the American Society of Quality Six Sigma Green Belt exam in early December. Ron Bruintjes, Jennifer Riley, John Saunders, Donnie Havens, David Sutherland, and Susan Sutherland are now certified Six Sigma Green Belts as a result of the exam. We look forward to seeing the new Green Belts improve processes in the near future.
