Training

Training about excellence should exhibit excellence. We don't believe in online training. All of our courses are in-person and led by a practicing expert on the topic; not just a theorist. An MBB Consulting™ expert will provide real life examples describing how they've actually used the technique(s). Classes are also fun. Students learn better in a fun and comfortable setting. Case studies and exercises keep our classes interesting and make them much better than boring monologues done by some of our competitors. Many improvement techniques rely on Statistics. And many people find statistics boring. We've found ways to make it fun.

Attending my Six Sigma classes was a great learning experience. Our Master Black Belt had the credentials and the ability to make the classes exciting. Working as a production engineer in the HVAC industry I have been able to apply Six Sigma to problem solving situations saving valuable minutes on the assembly line and increase quality in the fabrication process. I believe with an excellent highly trained instructor everyone will appreciate the Six Sigma discipline.

Steve was one of the great managers that I was fortune to work with and from whom I learned many of my improvement techniques. He was my Master Black Belt in 6 Sigma. I contribute much of my success to him for teaching me the first steps along my journey to excellence. His encouragement and leading by example continue to be the guidance for many of my engineering projects. Many great managers and engineers are his students and receive the benefit from his training.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt in a high-tech manufacturing company where formal continuous improvement was a new concept. I was impressed with his ability to translate the concepts and skills needed to start down the path of the discipline in a way that was not only accessible to the employees, but excited them and moved many of them into being active, positive participants. I saw an immediate improvement in overall engagement, which helped in areas well beyond the tactical and functional areas included in the improvement project, itself.

This training is very good for Inspectors, Technicians, or Engineers to learn the fundamentals of GD&T. This course will help me a lot in my task of performing measurements. Our instructor is really good. He is very knowledgeable on all aspects. Regarding Gage R&R, the activities are fun. The course will help us improve our measurement analysis as we don't have this at work. Our instructor has so much enthusiasm in training. Please tell him that his training helped me gained confidence. Confidence comes from knowledge, right! He is a good trainer. I am thinking of searching again at your website and find what other courses you offer that will be beneficial to the group.

Our Master Black Belt introduced improved quality and manufacturing processes. Our company was moving to become ISO certified. He and I, plus one other, came from the automotive side and certified in ISO. Further, we had QS experience which was a more concentrated standard to allow all automotive companies to work to the same quality and manufacturing standard. He was also familiar with TS quality standards.

I had the pleasure of working with our Master Black Belt at our energy tech firm. There, he created an internal mentorship and training program to teach lean/six sigma concepts. The training was made available to employees spread both horizontally and vertically throughout the organization. Executives, managers, assemblers and receptionists alike were soon finding and eliminating waste within their workday. This divide-and-conquer philosophy in executing the continuous improvement program was not only an incredibly efficient way to find and implement cost savings, but also created a culture of empowerment within our organization. Our MBB encouraged all of his students to use these techniques to add value to the organization, in-turn making them more valuable employees.

Six sigma training experience exceeded my expectations. The course was easy to understand, and the Material was written for a novice, with practice example from our office. I had some problems with MiniTab, however, the help I received from our Master Black Belts was great and helped me a lot. This has been a great and valuable experience that helped me understand all topics related with this methodology. He showed lot of tools, templates and information that you will definitely use lots.

When I attended MBBC's 5S Training, I did not know what to expect. I went into it with an open mind and was presently surprised. While I was listening to the presentation I imagined all the ways I could apply the training to my facility. The class was upbeat and engaging and the instructor referenced real world examples to connect with issues we face every day. I left the training inspired and eager to apply what I learned to my facility. I would recommend the 5S Training to anyone who is looking improve their efficiency in manufacturing.
