The City of Titusville is committed to developing a culture of continuous improvement using Lean Six Sigma techniques. Another round of Green Belt training has occurred with ten staff participating and six new process improvement projects in Community Development, Police, Support Services and Water Resources.
Currently there are six projects in process in the City Clerk, Community Development, Fire, Public Works and Support Services departments.
Previously the City trained and certified one Black Belt and eighteen Green Belts in Lean Six Sigma techniques. The Black Belt and Green Belts completed twelve process improvement projects resulting in better service to our citizens, more efficient procedures and reduced costs to the City.
A Lean Six Sigma project uses the DMAIC model for process improvement, progressing through the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control phases of the model.
In order to achieve Green Belt certification, candidates are required to complete four steps: attend training, pass an exam, complete a project, presentation of the project demonstrating use of the Lean DMAIC model and knowledge of Lean Six Sigma techniques.
