Certification

Six Sigma is a set of techniques and tools which seek to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. This Diploma in Six Sigma training course describes how each Six Sigma project is carried out within an organization that follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified value targets, for example: reduce process cycle time, reduce pollution, reduce costs, increase customer satisfaction, and increase profits. The course introduces you to important Six Sigma concepts such as using control charts, Design of Experiments and Taguchi methods which are very important tools used in Statistical Process Control (SPC). The course also teaches you about benchmarking which is the process of comparing one's business processes and performance metrics to industry bests or best practices from other industries. You will learn how Six Sigma processes are powerful tools that managers can use to identify and solve supply chain problems. This Six Sigma training course will be of great interest to all professionals who work in the areas of Six Sigma, Quality Management and manufacturing who would like to learn more about the techniques and tools used in Six Sigma projects. It will also be of great interest to all learners who would like a career in the area of Six Sigma and quality control.

Having completed this course the learner will be able to:
 Describe the basics of Statistical Process Control.
 Describe to use Design of Experiments to understand and optimize process settings.
 Explain and apply the statistical techniques used in Six Sigma.
 Outline the steps in planning Design of Experiments.
 Describe the development of Taguchi Methods by Genichi Taguchi.
 Describe typical Quality Engineering applications.
 Define benchmarking and list its benefits.
 List the steps of widely used benchmarking procedures.
 Define what supply chain management is.
 Describe how Six Sigma can be used in supply chain management.
 Describe management's challenge of integrating Six Sigma processes into supply chain systems.
