Six Sigma Green Belt

This course starts with a two hour web meeting. Classroom week 1 of this 2 week course will focus on Lean. Lean is a focus on process flow. This methodology generates a picture of a process and identifies “waste” that inhibits process flow. It can be applied to processes in manufacturing or processes of information such as order handling. Classroom week 2 is primarily Six Sigma methodology. The DMAIC (Design-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) methodology is used for complex problem solving when one knows he/she has a problem but is not sure of the solution. This methodology allows for the subjective beliefs of a root cause to be objectively eliminated or confirmed.

Course objectives

Students will gain an understanding in Lean (manufacturing and office application) and Six Sigma (DMAIC) methodology. They will leave this class with the ability to apply Lean Six Sigma tools to solve complex problems, exploit improvement and optimization opportunities. Students may pursue Green Belt certification (included in the cost of the course) by attending and participating in class, passing the exam with a minimum score of 80%, and completing a project within 6 months of the start of class.

Recommended for

Engineering managers, reliability engineers, project managers, production and application engineers, business managers and marketing positions at all levels, sales engineers, quality, or anyone interested in solving complex problems in business, manufacturing, administration, etc.
