- Former ASC officer certifies as Lea Six Sigma Black Belt
A field-grade officer has been certified as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, the Army Sustainment Command has announced.
Maj. Mathew Guerrie, who previously was assigned as a systems integration officer to the 407th Army Field Support Brigade at Fort Hood, Texas, received certification on Oct. 28.
His project was titled "AFSB Acquisition Integration" in which Guerrie developed a disciplined, repeatable, knowledge-driven process for system acquisition within the AFSB, resulting in a cost avoidance of $267,543 for fiscal 2009.
During the year, Guerrie held a conference with other AFSB Acquisition Corps officers throughout ASC. The conference served as a solution to the project to determine ways to provide customers optimal value.
He also taught a Brigade Logistics Support Team course at ASC and created a Knowledge Center on the web-based Army Knowledge Online.
Guerrie focused his efforts on communication between other AFSB Acquisition Corps officers in order maintain a continuous flow of information and knowledge, creating an effective acquisition position based on the improvements implemented.
Guerrie is now serving a one-year fellowship with the RAND Corporation.
