Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America Adds Six Sigma Black Belt to its Credentials

Jan 05, 2010

January 5, 2010 – Buffalo Grove, IL – Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America recently added Six Sigma Black Belt Certification from the American Society for Quality to the credentials of its Enterprise Consulting team. Black Belt Certification indicates understanding and experience in applying Six Sigma philosophies and principles, including supporting systems in a variety of business situations. A certified Black Belt demonstrates team leadership in all aspects of the DMAIC model (define, measure, analyze, improve, control), understands lean enterprise concepts, and uses tools to identify non-value-added activities.

“Black Belt is one of the highest levels of certification for those who help provide continuous improvement through the six sigma process. So we are very proud to announce that Mike Cieslinski, Senior Solutions Engineer, recently reached this level of expertise,” commented Faisal Pandit, Director of Solutions. “This achievement underscores Panasonic’s commitment to expanding our value-added solutions in order to help customers maximize the productivity of their enterprise, maintain their competitive position, and be better prepared for changes in the economic environment—no matter which brand of manufacturing capital equipment they use.”

Cieslinski is part of Panasonic’s Enterprise Consulting team, which seeks to maximize customers’ productivity, not only as it relates to their equipment, but also to the processes extending throughout their enterprise. Offerings include assistance in Kaizen initiatives, Green Belt training, and Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), as well as metrology, calibration, certification, and various equipment services.

The technology experts of the Enterprise Consulting team bring many years of their own experience in the manufacturing industry along with experience from performing operational consulting engagements for many top-tier EMS and OEM companies. Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America benefits from the expertise of global manufacturing leader Panasonic Corporation. This powerful combination of both equipment and product manufacturing expertise can help transform customers’ facilities to best-in-class levels.
