QUESTION:For The Black Belt Training, I See A Project Submittal Is Required. Do You Supply A Mock Project Or Group Project To Work? What If I Cannot Get On A Black Belt Project At My Day Job? How Does This Work?
We do supply an example of a project submittal in the Black Belt Training. The project example is from our Bahama Bistro setting used throughout the course. You will also have a project template that can help guide you with project content.
Although work-related projects are the most ideal, the DMAIC process can be applied with personal use, but it will still require the rigor associated with Black Belt level projects. All projects will go through an approval process by a Master Black Belt.

QUESTION:I Thought Discrete Data Requires A Smaller Sample. Is The Following Statement True, “Discrete data, such as the number of mistakes per invoice, will require smaller samples than Continuous data, such as time and money.”
Actually the opposite is true. The sample sizes for discrete data are always larger than continuous. Think of this example, if a child seems sick, a parent will need more information to confirm if they are truly sick. Sick or not sick is discrete data. The next question is usually, “What is their temperature?” which is request for continuous data. If the temperature is 99 degrees Fahrenheit then the child is probably fine, but if the temperature is 104 degrees Fahrenheit then the child is very sick and needs to go to the hospital. Only one point of continuous data provides enough information to make a decision.
I hope that helps. If you try any online sample size calculators you’ll find the sample sizes to be very different. Continuous is always smaller.

QUESTION:How Can I Apply The Lean Six Sigma Concept In A Mining Company?
Mining has many applications for Lean Six Sigma! There’s a great return on investment when it’s applied to projects that can increase utilization of expensive equipment and improve work practices of highly skilled people. Here’s some project outcomes:
- Improving conveyor belt maintenance and use to have belt life greater than 2000 hours
- Improved maintenance of large haul truck tires increased hours of use, thus deferring tire replacement by 3 months
- Reducing soft tissue injuries of underground mining staff by active use of a fitness coach and exercise to strengthen muscles
- Reducing inventory by 50% by tracking forecast accuracy on a line item basis, increasing the forecast frequency, and focusing on no stockouts for standard items. Customers were able to reduce inventory on hand where before improvement they carried one month’s inventory to ensure available stock
Keys to the success of these projects were selecting a key performance measure that tied to a specific process that could be studied. I hope this gives you an idea of how you can apply Lean Six Sigma at your mining company!
