Everything needed to take the Six Sigma Green Belt Foundation assessment
Module 1: Introduction to Six Sigma, Quality and Standards
This module introduces you to the meaning and use of the Six Sigma approach, the underlying concept of variation, the relationships to related Quality Management approaches, basic Six Sigma tools, international ISO standards for Six Sigma, and the nature of Six Sigma improvement projects.
Module 2: Defining the Project Mission
This module will focus on creativity and creativity tools that can be used in coming up with creative formulations and solutions in (Lean) Six Sigma improvement projects.
In the various stages of DMAIC it is important to think `outside of the box`, rather than thinking in the same old way, with the same constraints. We need creative solutions.
Module 3: Project Reviews and Management
This module concentrates on the review and management of Six Sigma projects.
Project management is a very big subject. It provides concepts, tools and techniques to manage relatively small projects, such as Six Sigma projects, through to mega projects like sending men to Mars.
You should use these concepts and tools to a depth suited to your particular project. In this module we will explore the basic concepts and tools of project management, and recognize their application to Six Sigma projects.
Module 4: Introduction to Statistics and Excel
This module concentrates on Statistical techniques for summarizing data, and makes extensive use of Microsoft Excel. It assumes no previous knowledge of Excel.
If you are already familiar with Excel, you may find some of the explanations unnecessary and you will get through this module more quickly than others.
Module 5: Statistical Process Control (SPC)
This module concentrates on Statistical Process Control. This is one of the most powerful and frequently used tools in Six Sigma projects.
Exams / Assessments
Students of this course will be assessed via several short end-of-module quizzes and interactive exercises, as well as the submission of a work project to a Six Sigma tutor. On successfully completing these assessments, students will earn a certificate of completion which will verify their understanding of Six Sigma as well as their ability to apply the knowledge within real-world organizations.
Throughout the course, a Six Sigma Tutor will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have and provide you with guidance as you work your way through each module.
