I’ll tell you my story. I am a production engineer and would like to share something very important with you: The secret for the production engineer to never get unemployed, get promotions and constant salary increases. And most importantly, be satisfied with your performance at work.
Most companies today face an increasingly crowded market and this makes it very difficult to increase their revenue because any 1% more in sales volume is not easy. So how do you increase your company’s profit without increasing your sales volume? It’s simple, just controlling your expenses and eliminating wasteful processes. And how to do that? Today there are many methodologies that address the elimination of waste, but we have two of them that are well known by the market. LEAN MANUFACTURING and SIX SIGMA. Both were developed, tested and validated in well-known companies such as Toyota and Motorola, who were the creators of LEAN and SIX SIGMA, respectively. So these methodologies are very important tools in the training of production engineers, but it is a shame that the faculties almost do not approach this subject, and sometimes they want to touch on the subject during the 5 years of college. I “was lucky” to have worked in a company that had this concept very well implemented and I could see the benefits that these two methodologies bring to all the processes of the company, from the first contact with the customer until the delivery of your product. At that time I was encouraged by my superior to become certified in BLACK BELT. I had no idea what it was, so I went to research and became interested, because I saw that the course contemplated all the tools LEAN AND SIX SIGMA and would take away many doubts that I had about the operation and application of these tools that I heard so much speak in the my day-to-day work. I can say that it was the best decision I’ve made in recent years, because after I finished the course and delivered my project, I was no longer the same. My mind opened up and I was able to see the processes, their problems and the opportunities for improvement much more clearly. After that I had many growth opportunities within the company I worked for and proposals from other companies. I ended up opting to leave because I received a much better proposal to work in another company. What I want to say to you is that the BLACK BELT certification for a production engineer exponentially increases your chance of getting a job because it will leave you light years ahead of other competitors who do not have the certification. This trend of cost reduction has come strong in Brazil and companies are increasingly asking for BLACK BELT certification for mid-level employees up.
If you have any doubts, search the job sites for the number of vacancies that companies require candidates to have BLACK BELT certification for vacancies of engineers, supervisors, managers, directors and etc…
