Vestas Blades appointed Paloma Consulting Limited to provide Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt training, coaching and certification.
Paloma advised and helped us develop the constituents of a tailored Black Belt programme which fitted past experience. They helped us select suitable course content, skill set and behavior and advanced process variation analysis techniques.
They coached us to deliver a project which improved paint quality and process capability for our 44m blades. They helped us with technical discussions at meetings with our paint supplier, Manckiewicz in Hamburg, Germany. Their consultants spent several days on site working in the paint booths with our six paint teams, to help us maintain product quality and process capability whilst reducing excess paint. They were able to engage and inspire our paint operators, make substantial improvements to measurement systems which required measurements in microns without additional capital investment, and agree technical specifications with technology department which formed the basis of process improvements.
Throughout, the Paloma Consulting Limited consultants, were professional, creative and knowledgeable. They imparted their knowledge and experience clearly to us when coaching and mentoring our improvement teams, to allow us to deliver 2 projects which saved in excess of approx € 500.000.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Paloma Consulting Limited to other companies wishing to apply Lean Six Sigma techniques to aid staff development, improve processes, improve customer service and reduce cost.
