Measurement & Basic Statistics

0.6 CEUs


IISE and MoreSteam are pleased to present this online course.

Measurements are the foundation of any Lean Six Sigma project; they drive actions and provide the reliable feedback that is absolutely essential to progress. Without reliable and meaningful measurements, the path is uncertain at best. Organizations can communicate their values - what they care about - in a visible way by measuring those activities. The visibility and accountability that flow from measurements prompt activity: what gets measured gets done.

Translating measurements into useful business information is the role of Statistics. Our goal is to give you a practical introduction to Measurements and Statistical Methods so that you can implement a successful process improvement project within your organization.

What You Will Learn:

After completing this course, you should be able to DO the following:

  • Communicate using Lean Six Sigma concepts.
  • Use a histogram to show the relative frequency of observations within categories of your data.
  • Determine the process center.
  • Quantify and evaluate the process dispersion.
  • Determine when and how to build and correctly interpret pareto charts.
  • Understand the basics of variation, the tyranny of averages, and the difference between accuracy and precision.
