Six Sigma Training Boosts Quality at Bison

Martin Swarbrick, president and CEO at Bison Gear and Engineering Corp., discusses the classroom training used to achieve Six Sigma quality principles and techniques at Bison.

Employees partake in five days of classroom training, an examination and a project and receive certification from an external body. This ensures Bison has trained employees in place to achieve cost reductions and the best value available to its customer base through Six Sigma.

Swarbrick talks about the differences between “potential” and “actual” quality and how Six Sigma focuses on the elimination of waste to achieve higher quality standards. By incorporating Six Sigma, the company not only maximizes the value of its products but it also increases the skills and capabilities of its workforce.
