Master black belt project


Dwayne swearington II Jacksonville, FL

Good evening,
I am currently in the process of going through my LSSMBB training. My issue is after I finish the exam, I will have to find a project to submit. Since I am still active duty(for a couple of months), I will have no way to submit a project from my command. The good news is that I can submit a hypothetical. I tried to find hypothetical projects, but to no avail. Need help. Thank you in advance!

Black Belt projects are those that provide a financial impact for a company and include things like: reducing defects, reducing machine setup, correcting areas that were rejected in an audit, reducing added labor and reducing extra material.

Since you work for the Government, could you consider that your Company?
Is there a trade off of three hypothetical projects vs one real world project?

Some ideas?
Compare infrastructure required and implementation costs for EVs verses Hydrogen Powered vehicles, and Hydrogen storage vs Battery storage. Recent advances in Hydrogen Powered vehicles are being tried in Australia.

Reducing the cost or improving efficiency of any government operation.
For example, more efficient ways of financing government.
Compare operations of one country to another & suggest improvements.

Water conservation.

Better ways for Government personnel recruiting.

You could volunteer to help one of the many Federal (Congress?)
State or local government committees with your research.
