The first half of the course focuses on process improvement to help build an understanding that every employee at a plant has the ability and duty to help improve day-to-day operations. The second half of the course focuses on specific tools to improve the total quality of a process, including safety, monitoring, emergency response, and procedure writing - using biodiesel and pulp and paper mill facilities as the vehicles of learning.
