Six Sigma Green Belt for Process ImprovementMarch 27 - 30One full day Monday, Half-days Tuesday - Thursday
The Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology can be thought of as a roadmap for problem solving and product/process improvement.
The Six Sigma Methodology focuses on removing inconsistency from the process or service in an effort to reduce defects or in the case of ergonomics, injury.
Because people are involved, there will always be inconsistency in process or service, and therefore it is increasingly important to analyze the ergonomic risk factors involved.
This seminar, the introductory course in Six Sigma, will give you a thorough understanding of Six Sigma and its focus on eliminating defects through fundamental process knowledge. The course has been designed to cover all of the recognized Six Sigma green belt topics efficiently. The class includes those concepts and tools that provide immediate value when applied at all levels of an organization's operations. IIE instructors have had years of experience applying these to real processes ranging from manufacturing to healthcare to financial services to government. Topics covered in addition to DMAIIC and Six Sigma philosophy include basic statistics, statistical process control, process capability, financial implications and root cause analysis. This seminar is offered both in the classroom and online.
It is the first true introductory course and is intended for individuals at all levels within the organization. The IIE Green Belt course is shorter than many other Green Belt courses because we include only the tools and information necessary for immediate application. Instead of padding our hands-on courses with black belt topics that the beginner practitioner does not need, we keep the black belt topics in the advanced courses and allow the beginner practitioner to learn the basics quickly to improve operations.
Overview: Learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a Six Sigma green belt, you will be equipped to support and champion Six Sigma implementation in your organization. Participants will take the green belt exam online. The exam is included in the course fee. Participants who pass the exam receive IIE's Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate.
Prior seminar participants have reported significant savings from implementing their projects.
