MVP Commercial Truck Green Belt Training

MVP Commercial Truck Green Belt Training is a comprehensive 3-day training program based on the practical application of Lean Six Sigma tailored for commercial truck collision repair. MVP has used this proven science to develop curriculum for implementing practical solutions for the commercial truck shop. Participants will learn the application of these principles and how to apply these in their shop’s repair processes. Commercial truck shops have consistently driven best-in-class performance through effective execution of these principles.

Size or volume does not determine the success of a commercial truck collision shop in today’s market place.
The MVP Commercial Truck Green Belt Training is valuable to both high-volume shops and small operators alike. Owners, managers, lead technicians and other key staff can benefit attending this course. Participants should posses a desire to drive improvement and have a vision for the future. This vision combined with a sense of urgency and willingness to change makes for the ideal candidate for this course. We recommend several key staff participate in Green Belt for CT. This enables the formation of a leadership team focused on change when you return to the business.

STRATEGIC THINKING – Establishing a shared vision for change. Participants receive training and materials needed to communicate a compelling vision that excites people about the future—a critical success factor for gaining the shared vision and sense of urgency needed to cause and sustain change.

LEAN FOR COLLISION FUNDAMENTALS – Practical application of Lean Six Sigma tailored for collision repair. Gain an understanding of the core fundamentals of Lean Six Sigma and how PPG has integrated and applied these three proven methodologies into the collision repair process.

LITTLE’S LAW – The relationship between work in process and lead time performance. Learn how to use a simple formula for accurately measuring cycle time performance, a key step in continuous process improvement.

LEAN BASICS FOR COLLISION REPAIR – Lessons in variation, flow, constraint management and production leveling. Learn the root causes of poor cycle time performance, using process model simulations as a way to de-mystify the key principles of Lean Six Sigma.

PROCESS DESIGN & RESOURCE PLANNING – Not a “one solution fits all” model. While best practices can apply to any given collision repair shop, their application can differ from collision repair shop to collision repair shop, depending on such varying factors as sales volume, design layout, resources, capital, competitive situation, etc. With that in mind, this segment instructs participants on how to use data, tools and proven approaches for implementing process design and resource planning.

5S WORKPLACE ORGANIZATION – Creating an environment for increased throughput and Organization for Collision productivity. Learn how to design and implement a visual control system in your collision center—an excellent starting point for improving throughput performance and productivity. Instruction includes Lean Six Sigma principles such as workplace organization, standard tools, standard work and standard materials as proven approaches for creating a world-class performance environment.

X-RAY REPAIR PLANNING® – Eliminating 80% of production waste. This session delves deeply into the repair planning processes of Visual Mapping, Meticulous Disassembly, Discovery, Parts Procurement, Pre-Repair, Production Scheduling and Quality Verification. Participants are also provided tools and materials needed to bring their entire organization up to speed—from orientation and training to implementation.

ROAD MAP FOR EXECUTION – The challenge of process re-engineering is not what to change but how to cause and sustain change. Learn a step-by-step approach for creating and sustaining change and setting the stage for continuous improvement in the collision repair shop.
