Please note: This course is from a pre-recorded Real-Time Seminar held in 2016. Attendee questions and answers will be included. 

MODULE 1
Energy Reduction Using Six Sigma, and Kaizen 

This session will provide you with understanding of how energy reduction can occur and be enhanced by using various improvement processes. During this first day we will cover the overall change equation, and how to then fill this equation, and achieve energy reduction, using Six Sigma, and Kaizen Energy Treasure Hunts. Each program will be defined and broken down to show how it can be used for energy reduction. Specific examples will be shown for all programs – steps as well as results.


Learning Objectives:

  • Define and understand the universal change equation and its applicability to energy reduction, where Change (C) = D + V + S
  • Learn how to define and apply Dissatisfaction, or the D
  • Learn how to define and apply your improvement Vision, or the V
  • Steps to achieving Vision – Six Sigma, and Kaizen Energy Treasure Hunts
  • The elements of Six Sigma – DMAIC
  • Importance of proper Six Sigma project definition
  • Using a Six Sigma Cause and Effect matrix
  • Example Six Sigma energy reduction projects
  • The elements of Kaizen Energy Treasure Hunts
  • Considerations, and scheduling Kaizen events for maximum efficiency and benefits

Example Kaizen Events process steps, and results


MODULE 2
Energy Reduction Using 5 S, Lean Thinking, and Behavioral Energy Change

This session will describe how to apply 5S, Lean Thinking, and Behavioral Energy change for energy reduction, further meeting the overall universal change equation parts. Each program will be defined and broken down to show how it can be used for energy reduction. Specific examples will be shown for all programs – steps as well as results.


Learning Objectives:

  • Steps to achieving Vision – Lean Thinking, 5S, and Behavioral Energy Change
  • Define Lean Thinking, and its applicability to Energy Reduction – stand alone or as an indirect consequence
  • Define the seven (7) wastes, and their energy applicability
  • Define 5S – sort, set (straighten), shine, standardize, sustain
  • Show how each S impacts energy, and can be used for energy reduction
  • Provide example 5S check lists
  • Explain the how’s and why’s of Behavioral Energy Change (BEC)
  • Defining BEC’s ABC model
  • Example BEC programs that work, and why
  • Summary of all programs, their similarities and differences
