    All,
    Brandon (yes you are my partner in this thing) has agreed that I should start a thread. Here are the questions.

    Where (i.e., what level) of an organization should WB, YB, GB, BB, and MBB be located?
    And what does each need to know to contribute to process improvement?
    What are the roles and responsibility of each?
    And how does each of these levels relate or interact with each other?
    I hope this will be a productive contribution to all here.
    Thanks in advance for contributions from all.
    Regards,
    Dr. Scott

    Engine Lady,
    You referred me back to my own post. I am looking for more opinions than my own. I felt like it would be a worthwhile discussion or thread aside from the one that started it.
    Thanks,
    Dr. Scott

    Injun Man – that may well be a wonderful site with a wonderful message…however, it is not pertinent to this discussion.

    Is it just me, or does Melissa look a bit too young for the deceased Gene.
    Now, stop wasting time here and address the forum on the topic.

    Dr. Scott,
    Since I have worked in some pretty close structured organizations I feel I can apply my opinion on this.
    White Belt-Trained in SPC, Daily charting functions, an Operator, Assembly personnel etc. Knows the lingo, and has just enough knowledge to be able to communicate suggestions for improvement.
    Yellow Belt-Trained in SPC, and basic statistical applications like Gage R&R, and other shop floor analysis. Instrumental in laying out Lean and conducting 5S project improvements. Supervisors and other lead type personnel.
    Green Belt-Trained in Six Sigma methodology and capable of completeing six sigma projects with the help of Black Belt or Master BB. This person needs to grasp the concepts of lean and six sigma and be able to train WB and YB and inlist there services for conducting DOE and MSA’s etc through out project life. Supervisor, Engineer, Process owner, etc
    Black Belt-Trained in Six Sigma and has at least 5 successful projects to their name. This person should also be a Champion to Green belts and help give direction and guidance throughout Green Belt Projects. The Link between MBB and Process Owners. Also help direct and provide additional OJT to the WB and YB
    Ah yes and Finally the Almighty Master of the Belts-This person must be able train, lead, and report all things Six Sigma and be responsible for reporting to the big dogs in the company. Provide company direction and leadership in the realm of improvements to the operation and be instrumental in the Design>Build>Product to market phase. Also be able to assist R&D with new product development and transfer to existing applications. The link between marketing, Engineering, and Product out the door.
     
    Just my opinion- I know others will have drastically different views

    Although my place of employment does not designate SS status beyond GB, BB and MBB, I very much like the idea of each employee in the company having a ‘Belt’ status and the structure described by Mr. Vader seems logical and practical.  I would be interested in other structures / definitions of roles from others who have been involved with organizations utilizing the broader range of belt status.

    No, he’s not the famous Dr. Gene Scott – but when he saw Melissa he kinda wished he was for a while.

    Vader,
    Pretty darn good answer. One more question for you; who trains and certifies the MBB?
    Regards,
    Dr. Scott
