The Black Belt training program integrates online learning with hands-on data analysis. The course material provides an in-depth look at the DMAIC problem-solving methodology, as well as deployment and project development approaches. The course flow follows the DMAIC methodology, with the appropriate tools and concepts taught at each stage of project deployment. Since software will be used for data analysis, the course material concentrates on the application and use of the tools, rather than on detailed derivation of the statistical methods. Workshops are incorporated extensively throughout the training to challenge the student's analytical and problem-solving skills.
Prerequisite: Black Belt candidates generally have college degrees in industry-related fields, including business, engineering, or sciences. They're comfortable using mathematics, are experienced problem solvers, have college-level reading comprehension skills, and are proficient in using Windows-based computer software, including Microsoft Office and general statistical software packages.
- Participate in the development of a successful Six Sigma program.
- Contribute to the definition of project selection criteria and develop project proposals to meet those criteria.
- Lead a Six Sigma project team, using the DMAIC problem solving methodology and team building skills.
- Apply and interpret basic and advanced Six Sigma tools, as necessary, for project definition, process baseline analysis, process improvement, and process control.
