Michigan Tech Lean Training: Understanding the Impact--Collecting and Visualizing Metrics to Support Improvement

Metrics help us describe what we currently know about the current situation, confirm whether an identified potential cause is contributing to the problem, and verify that our countermeasures are working the way we want them to. In this course, we’ll learn some simple methods for collecting and visualizing data to support improvements. In most cases, any employee can collect and interpret the data they need to improve their work. After this class, you’ll have a better understanding of: Data plans, Tally Charts, Pareto Charts, Histograms, Scatter Diagrams, and Run and Control Charts.

Registration for off-campus and community participants can be completed in our online store.
