Rapidly Pilot Process Designs with Process Playground

Good process design requires experimentation. Creating a digital twin of a new process is the best way to quickly and easily test your design. Discrete event simulation is a powerful technique used to build process models that accurately mimic the variation we see in our processes.

This course teaches you how to build a good process from day one and validate your successful improvement decisions. We'll teach you how to use Process Playground, our web-based discrete event simulation tool, by following a straightforward case study to experiment with different design ideas easily. Once you're comfortable with the software, you'll have a chance to experiment with your own process designs.

Agile Process Design Curriculum

MoreSteam's Agile Process Design course is a twist on a traditional Design for Six Sigma training curriculum that integrates Agile methods with product and process development through design thinking and Six Sigma methodologies. Master a systematic approach to design that not only meets but exceeds customer expectations. View a detailed outline of the course content.
