Foundries today often struggle with problem solving, and have a need for training with a focus on metal casting issues. This 2.5 day course provides participants with basic root cause analysis training. At its core, this course provides foundry personnel with disciplined problem solving techniques, and emphasizes tools to better understand process data and performance using unique examples and case studies drawn from foundry settings. Some of the topics taught include: problem solving approaches, process thinking, problem characterization and a look at types of data, collecting and analyzing data, tools for analyzing process variation, process capability, testing the root cause, developing solutions and countermeasures, and methods for sustaining improvement.

NOTE: 1st and 2nd Day starts at 8:30 - 3:30PM and 3rd Day starts at 8:00AM-NOON
