About the program
This program, created in affiliation with MindEdge and Six Sigma Black Belts, is inclusive of all topics covered by the International Association for Six Sigma Certification. This program prepares students for the MindEdge Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Exam (purchased separately) and provides information to those interested in learning about Six Sigma processes.
Six Sigma is a management approach meant to improve the quality of products or services by eliminating the variation that causes of defects and errors and dates back from the mid- 1980’s. Six Sigma seeks processes where outputs are 99.9997% statistically free from defects.
The methodology of six sigma has two sub-divisions. They are DMAIC & DMADV. The former is used to improve an existing business process, while the second one is used either for creating a new product or for process designs for predictable and defect free performance. By DMAIC it means giving importance to defining, measuring, analyzing, improving and controlling a process to meet its better quality. The implementation of the six sigma methodology, helps in providing a logical sequence for existing concepts and the problem solving tools, by sufficient repackaging of the tools and concepts. The second approach is the DMADV approach: define, measure, analyze, design and verify. This methodology is especially useful when implementing new strategies and initiatives because of its basis in data, early identification of success and thorough analysis.
Students who complete the Six Sigma Green Belt certificate are awarded a total of 32 PDUs (5 Strategic and Management PDUs, 11 Leadership PDUs and 16 Technical PDUs) and 3.2 IACET CEUs.
