Dimensions has announced that members of its first cohort of Six Sigma students have graduated from their training programme and have achieved the Green Belt level.
The objective of the Six Sigma methodology is to implement a measurement based strategy that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction through the application of improvement projects.
The programme works across two sub-methodologies that first focus on identifying improvement and looking for incremental improvement. Students are then encouraged to look deeper at the improvement areas and develop new processes that meet high quality levels set by Six Sigma. Students will first gain their Six Sigma Green Belts then progress to Six Sigma Black Belts.
The programme was rolled out to members of staff from both Dimensions’ Castle Donington office and the Long Eaton Logistics Centre, and has been very well received.
Steve Cassapi, logistics director, said: “I’ve never seen a group of more dedicated students. From working their full time jobs to going home and completing their homework, they’ve all just been fantastic. The Six Sigma philosophy of change for the better through continuous improvement fits in with what I try to do in our Logistics Centre and what Dimensions’ do as a company. We are constantly looking to improve our service offering and our customer journey, Six Sigma empowers our employees to make those changes to improve. Overall, I’m delighted with the programme and the students’ progress and I’m looking forward to the changes that will be implemented as a result.”
