Six Sigma Waste Identification & Removal

International Automobile Manufacturer

An Experiential Alternative to Measure Training Effectiveness

Plant operations and learning leaders for this global automotive manufacturer sought an innovative method for objectively determining the effectiveness of their Six Sigma Waste Identification and Elimination training program.

Previous assessment approaches did not capture the level of data required to comprehensively assess each learner’s level of understanding and ability. Mosaic recommended an experiential simulation method utilizing our online 3D gaming platform to create a highly interactive plant environment capable of objectively capturing detailed performance data on each participant’s actions and decisions for evaluation.

Interactive Practice & Performance Assessment

Mosaic designed and developed a 3D post-training practice and assessment simulation replicating a typical manufacturing plant. Learners use their keyboard and mouse to move virtually throughout the plant and attempt to locate all instances of waste, categorize the specific type of waste with applicable tagging, and determine the appropriate remediation method.

Key performance data points tracked during each scenario include:

  • The number of wasteful situations correctly located
  • The number of identified instances appropriately tagged
  • The number of accurately determined methods for eliminating waste
  • Time to complete specific tasks and the entire simulation
  • Best practice inconsistency trends among participants

Mosaic created a dynamic “Leaderboard” that presents after each completed simulation, detailing how participants rank amongst their peers in real-time.
