Indium Engineers Earn Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has announced that three company engineers have earned their designation as Lean Six Sigma Green Belt-certified. With their recent designation, Daniel Siedsma, Chemical Process Engineer; Adam Murling, Technical Support Engineer; and Michael Wood, Manufacturing Process Engineer, join a number of employees who are Lean Six Sigma certified at Indium.

Lean Six Sigma is a business approach that focuses on improving workplace performance by reducing waste and process variations. The certification process involves two weeks of training that culminates in an examination in statistics, designed experiments, statistical process control, and "lean" continuous improvement concepts.

Daniel_Siedsma.jpgSiedsma joined Indium in 2011 as a chemical process engineer and performs research and development with Indium's metals and compounds products. He earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) with a minor in general psychology.

Adam_Murling.jpgMurling joined Indium in 2014 as a technical support engineer. He is responsible for providing leading-edge technical support for Indium's global account initiatives through SMT process optimization, material recommendations, and customer training. He is an active blogger and has authored numerous technical papers. He earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University.
