ABSTRACT

NASA has been using Lean Six Sigma since 2005 with great success in improving a variety of processes. We are complex organization and began our journey as a grass roots effort at Marshall Space Flight Center. During that time, we focused primarily on Kaizen events using our NASA trained Belts as facilitators for those events. Since then we have gotten more senior leader support and have also opened up our LSS toolkit to include DMAIC projects, 6S events, workout sessions, and Design for Six Sigma. One of our unique aspects of our program is the application of Lean Six Sigma to continually improve the effectiveness and efficiency of our Lean Six Sigma Program. Some federal agencies Lean Six Sigma programs deliver lass than optimum results. We use LSS to drive program improvements while spending considerably less per year for equal results. Our presentation will focus on the history of NASA LSS, our approach to continually improving our program, project successes, lessons learned, and where we are headed in the future. We offer White Belt, Green Belt, Black Belt, and Master Black Belt. One of our major projects for FY2015 was a blended Black Belt course that features virtual webinars. Our Black Belt training is 120 hours and this course will allow us to cut down the amount of travel
