Brilex Employees Complete Lean Six Sigma Training
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Brilex Industries, an international fabricating, machining, and assembly provider, reports 18 of its employees have earned their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certifications by participating in a certification program that included 40 hours of direct instructor training, followed by a successfully executed certification project.
The employees were trained with the ability to apply the quality tools and techniques of all elements in the Lean Six Sigma methodology. Six Sigma operates through both statistical and human processes to eliminate the causes of errors and develop efficiencies in productivity, which consequently reduces costs.
