    Hi Shruti & All,

    I have been in the technology industry for 24+ years, primarily doing pre an post sales technical support in the infrastructure space for local and foreign multinational companies. I decided to take a short break from my career since last week, so I can re-assess what I wish to do in the coming years ahead. Found this website very useful for online training, but with so many courses to choose from, am more confused than ever. Anyone here can offer some expert guidance will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello, my name is Rob Fruehan and I am an operations/assistant plant manager and at time floating plant manager for Trident Seafood's. I currently run the day to day ready to eat smoked salmon facility in Everett Washington. I and several coworkers are taking the green belt certification. I have 26 years experience in the seafood industry most in Alaska in most of our facilities and having dealt with all of the species we do. My interests are reading, traveling, and time with my family. In my work we began the lean manufacturing Journey at the end of last year but we have stalled a bit so thought better understanding would help them to see the immense improvement that understanding will achieve. I have a few questions, the first one is there a standard set of audit questions to audit your 5s+1 programs? a template if you will? We already do safety audits, gmp audits, food safety audits. I am hesitant to start yet another one however i beleive it is likely that if we pass the 5s audit, its likely that you pass all the others as a result.

    Evan Loenser here and I'm fresh to simplilearn. I have been working as a Quality Control Manager at a Mortgage Audit company in St. Paul, MN and i wanted to get my Green belt in Lean Six Sigma since I've gotten my feet wet with a similar lean project but don't know where to take it. I understand a few of the solutions but testing and finding metrics to report is another story. I'm not sure how much of this training will directly translate to the mortgage/finance industry but our company runs similar to a production line, so there is hope. Glad i'm part of the community and please feel free to reach out. I also enjoy traveling with my daughter and wife.

    Hello Shruti,

    I am Gail Gardner from GrowMap.com and am taking the DMCA and Masters courses. I don't want to say anything that will get me locked out, so maybe I should not mention what I do. If anyone wants to know they can look at my GrowMap LinkedIn profile.

    I would love to find one link that explains the entire process as I have no idea how all the pieces fit together. Also, please point us to any rules for this forum as I may have inadvertently broken one early on and need to make sure I don't do anything they don't want done here.

    Also, if you want to increase participation by people in other countries, your emails need to provide additional time zones that are easier to convert. Americans are not used to trying to figure out what time it is elsewhere, but most can now convert time zones within the U.S.
