Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification Training

The fundamental objective of the Six Sigma methodology is the implementation of a measurement-based strategy that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction through the application of Six Sigma improvement projects. This is accomplished through the use of two Six Sigma sub-methodologies: DMAIC and DMADV. The Six Sigma DMAIC process (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) is an improvement system for existing processes falling below specification and looking for incremental improvement. The Six Sigma DMADV process (define, measure, analyze, design, verify) is an improvement system used to develop new processes or products at Six Sigma quality levels. It can also be employed if a current process requires more than just incremental improvement. Both Six Sigma processes are executed by Six Sigma Green Belts and Six Sigma Black Belts and are overseen by Six Sigma Master Black Belts.

Black Belts save companies approximately $230,000 per project and can complete four to 6 projects per year. GE first began Six Sigma in 1995 after Motorola and Allied Signal blazed the Six Sigma trail. Since then, thousands of companies around the world have discovered the far-reaching benefits of Six Sigma.

Our BlackBelt training is designed to be 100% online andself paced. It is structured in 5 sections that follow the DMAIC methodology(Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control ). Eachsection contains several content units that are professionally narrated andinteractive eLearning modules. Each module is followed by a 10 question interactivequiz. At the end of each DMAIC phase is a chapter test and at the conclusion ofthe entire course is a certification exam. You must view all eLearning modules,pass all quizzes, tests and the certification exam to achieve your Lean SixSigma certification. The certification exam can be taken twice and must bepassed with a score of 80% or better.

Lesson Navigation

Below is a screen shot of the default viewof an eLearning module as well as the lesson material for your whole course. Toefficiently navigate through your course you will need to become familiar witha few key navigational components. Below you will notice 5 key areashighlighted by the yellow numbered boxes:

  1. Lesson Controls: You must advance each slide manually for all lesson modules by clicking the play button or forward/back buttons.
  2. Action Icons: Report errors, set bookmarks, advance to the next lesson etc.
  3. Lesson View: Each time you click this buttom your view will change (default view, full screen view or index view)  
  4. Lesson Material: This is the entire course curriculum. You can expand or collapse the views for each phase to show or hide its lessons. Clicking any lesson will open it. You may follow the suggested sequence or jump around if you prefer. All lessons must be viewed, all quizzes must be passed and all tests must be passed to achieve certification.Lessons will take 5-15 seconds to load depending our your connection speed.
  5. Progress Bar: The progress bar will show your percentage of units complete. Each lesson will "auto complete" by simply launching it. The quizzes and tests must be passed to receive completion credit.  All passing grades are 80% or better. Below the progress bar there are two completion rules. Completion rule #1 is that you must see all units. Completion rule #2 is the you must pass all tests (including quizzes). When both completion rules are met you will have satisfied course completion requirements.

Six Sigma – what does it mean?

a. Six Sigma at many organizations simply means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving toward six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process – from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.

Who should enroll for our Six Sigma Certification?

Six Sigma Certification can be applied to many aspects of business, and therefore can benefit almost all companies. By enrolling your employees, Six Sigma can drastically improve your organization's bottom line, and at the same time help your employees climb the corporate ladder. Six Sigma has become the flagship method for separating your organization from its competition.

The Benefits of Six Sigma Training

The Six Sigma Strategy was originally created by a fortune 500 company as a means to reduce waste and the costs that are associated with developing new products. What the strategy grew to become, after its methods and directives were implemented, is something far more than anyone could have envisioned. The benefits of six sigma training can be proven by corporations and the individuals that have taken the time to obtain the training.

Can any project be a Six Sigma project?

No. Typically, Six Sigma projects address situations where the cost, quality or delivery of a process is not meetingthe customer needs and the solution is not known. Six Sigma utilizes three methods to manage these projects,DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control), DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) and Lean (Discover and eliminate unnecessary steps within a process).

What is DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control)?

The Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology has five steps:

  • Define: The customer requirements, clarify the problem and set goals.
  • Measure: The current processes and collect relevant data for future comparison.
  • Analyze: To verify root causes and determine the relationship while considering all factors.
  • Improve: To generate and apply solutions. Modify existing processes or develop better processes.
  • Control: By monitoring to assure continued high-quality performance.

Six Sigma Black Belt Certification Eligibility:

Pre-requisites

  • Participant must be a Six Sigma Green Belt certificate holder
  • Participant must have at least two years of experience in Quality Management and Process Improvement

Does the course fee include the IASSC Certification examination fee also?

No, the course fee is only for the Black belt training. One needs to apply for IASSC for certification exam and it can be applied online on https://www.iassc.org/
