Six Sigma quality improvement for small manufacturers set April 10-11 in Lincoln

LINCOLN, NEB.--With typical savings exceeding $100,000 per project, it’s easy to understand why small manufacturers are eagerly participating in Six Sigma, ‘a fact-based, data-driven philosophy of quality improvement that values defect prevention over defect detection,’ according to the American Society for Quality.

Plant operations and quality managers, and process and quality engineers will have that opportunity April 10-11 in Lincoln when “Implementing Six Sigma in Small Manufacturing Organizations” is offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s (UNL) Main Student Union, 1400 R St. 

Dr. Ram Bishu and Bret Gengenbach, both certified Six Sigma Black Belts, will provide small manufacturing representatives with an overview of the benefits and achievable costs, as well as a road map for Six Sigma implementation. Bishu, is a UNL professor, with 37 years of experience in Quality Control, Manufacturing, Information Systems and Ergonomics whose experience includes product/process evaluation, and use of sophisticated statistical techniques. Gengenbach, quality manager at Molex Incorporated in Lincoln, has 25 years of experience working in manufacturing quality and five years training Six Sigma and Automotive Core Tools. He has a Master’s Degree in Engineering Management from UNL.

Two Fortune 500 companies, General Electric and Motorola, have developed and implemented Six Sigma strategies that have saved billions of dollars and helped them surge ahead in market shares. Small manufacturing companies also can achieve Six Sigma benefit levels without black belt structure that help them identify key customer needs and focus on key business practices using proven problem-solving tools.
