Does anyone have a simulation or game to demonstrate how to identify waste ? If so, please contact me if you're willing to share. Thank you.

Robin,
I like to use a lego game that is excellent in not only showing waste but also a major difference between push and pull. Here is the website: http://bbasicsllc.co..

  1. What level of Lean Six Sigma is your organization in (1-5 year deployment)?

    We will hit six years next month (March)

  2. What certification do you hold in Lean Six Sigma?

    I have LSS Black Belt. We also have 30 Green Belts and 16 other Black Belts

  3. Do you have a Lean Six Sigma committee?

    We have a monthly meeting with the CAO and Directors to discuss updates and upcoming large projects and initiatives.

  4. What Lean Six Sigma tools do you use?

    We try to focus on "Continuous Improvement" instead of LSS. LSS is one of the tools we use. For LSS we have the typical process maps, SIPOC, fishbone, FMEA, and others as they fit through the normal DMAIC process. We are trying to run most as Rapid Improvement Events as opposed to 4-6 month projects. Outside of LSS we have invested a lot of energy in Daily Management, 5S, Staffing to Demand, and Waste Walks.

  5. What are you looking to learn from the group?

    What is working well for others, new initiatives that are beneficial, shared project ideas, what roadblocks have been encountered and overcome.

The City of Roanoke would like to pass along the following information to the Consortium members.

Additionally, the City is also partnering with Va Tech to establish a Lean Academy. The first session, an Executive Overview on Lean, will be held on March 30th and 31st also here in Roanoke. I will post the brochures for both conferences and the agenda for the Lean Conference.

  1. What level of Lean Six Sigma is your organization in (1-5 year deployment)? -- the City of Roanoke, VA has been involved with Lean and Lean Six Sigma since the spring of 2012.
  2. What certification do you hold in Lean Six Sigma? -- I am not Lean or Lean Six Sigma certified though I have a previous background in work management. I am involved in the administration/coordination efforts of the program. The City has approximately 35 people Lean Certified and approximately 10 certified as Green Belts in Lean Six Sigma. We initially worked on Lean certification, switched to Lean Six Sigma green belt certification, and then switched back to Lean certification for our City staff.
  3. Do you have a Lean Six Sigma committee? -- the City has a Lean/LSS Steering Committee consisting of several senior managers as well as several LSS green belts responsible for overall direction of the City's Lean/LSS efforts.
  4. What Lean Six Sigma tools do you use? -- we partner with Virginia Tech University for Lean training on a variety of the basic lean tools -- value stream maps, 5-Whys, brainstorming, Nominal group technique, etc.
  5. What are you looking to learn from the group? -- primarily to find out what other local govts are doing in Lean and LSS and for benchmarking and networking.
