Lean 6 Sigma book recommendations for young, inexperienced manufacturing Engineers

Dear All,

At the moment I have a number of young, inexperienced manufacturing Engineers under my wing who I am entrusted with "educating" them in the ways of investment casting, machining and coating processes (Turbine parts - Hot section components). They are a mixture of in-house Engineers, and Engineers earmarked for External Supplier Quality roles.

I would also like to set them on a standardised learning route with regard to Quality Techniques. Can anyone recommend suitable texts?

I have already bought them all "The Lean Six Sigma Pocket Toolbook", by John Maxey.

Thanks in advance.......

You might want to try the Lean Pocket Guide http://www.amazon.com/Lean-Pocket-G...72805/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b/104-3250428-2611165

You might also consider some training materials like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Lean-Manufact...2611165?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1173015111&sr=1-3

In the end I find the training weak point is often in guiding hands-on application of the topic. Lean includes disciplines that may be new to these people. Please note that I said disciplines, not skills. Many times people will wish to whip through the diagnosis, or they might want to use superficial metrics. They might not stop to consider if the positive impact they seek will negatively impact another process.

Doing Lean right requires discipline development that I hope you will be sanctioning with guided projects. When looking at the topics in these books, I hope you will identify talking points that are relevant to your current situations. Bring the lessons to life. You can get together as groups and exersize the tools that are in the books and materials.

Once you've done that, you can set them loose with small individual projects and get together singly/in groups to discuss how the methods are working toward the results shown. You can ask each other if the results are what was expected, and if not, what unexpected factors (if any) impacted the results in what manner.

You see, I am making this training into a big, drawn out affair. My intent is to help you avoid what I've so often observed: well-intended but half-baked training that, lacking follow through, does not produce the desired results OR there is too much variation in the techniques' application.

I hope this helps!
