Congratulations to the 2018 Lean Six Sigma Class

Lean Six Sigma is a continuous improvement, problem-solving, and business process optimization methodology that delivers great results on Covia’s toughest challenges. Across Covia, 23 employees received certifications as either Champion, Yellow Belt, Green Belt, or Black Belt in 2018.

A completed project is required to fulfill the certification requirements. The project teams, led by the Black Belt candidates, meet for 10 to 15 percent of their work time between the class sessions to follow the Lean Six Sigma project protocol. The teams are currently working on projects that aim to yield annual savings or revenue increases.
