Training Information

You have the qualification Six Sigma Green Belt, already and you’re planning an add on qualification to a Six Sigma Black Belt ? In this Training you will get deeper knowledge for a systematic project identification and selection and also you will learn much more details about the DMAIC and several tools. The Six Sigma Black Belt takes the role of a Project Leader of Six Sigma Improvement Projects.

He is responsible for the success and the improvement of more complex and cross functional projects he is leading. Therefore he must know the Six Sigma-DMAIC methodology and must be able to apply its various tools and methods in reality. This requires not only the specialist knowledge, but also a corresponding social competence. After all, it is often a process of change, which must be supported and accepted by all parties involved. He is often a pioneer in the systematic implementation of improvement projects and motivates stakeholders through measurable successes. The 20-day Six Sigma Black Belt training qualifies you to successfully implement improvement projects using the Six Sigma tools and methods. You are empowered to manage and steer Six Sigma projects as project leaders. The course covers and exceeds topics meeting the ASQ (American Society for Quality) requirements.

  • You will know the requirements for a successful implementation of the Six Sigma – Methodology in your company. You are aware that Six Sigma will not be chosen in every problem situation and you will be able to decide in which situations it’s needed.
  • You realize that Six Sigma is definitely necessary if you have an important process problem and the root cause is not known, and you experience that such systematic projects are much more successful than the traditional way of working which consists of „Try & Error“ mostly.
  • You will have learnt all of the important tools and methods and you’re able to apply them in a Six Sigma Black Belt Project, also outside of your direct environment of responsibility.
  • You can handle standardised tools of project management in order to manage and guide your Black Belt Project team successfully. You will be able to close a project within a given time frame.
  • You will be able to achieve all of the goals which have been defined for your Black Belt Project and the expected Benefit will be delivered. This will be possible because you have investigated the significant root cause and developed a causal chain from the top project KPI to the true causes..
  • You will learn tools for modern data analysis and you will be able to apply them in different business situations in order to solve problems. You will get also an overview about some possibilities for a usage of data that are stored in process control systems or if you have an access to historical data..

Target group:

Employees and Management staff from all departments of production and Service companies, Marketing, sales, R&D, Engineering, production, purchase, Quality management.

Training contents:

Each candidate will select a Six Sigma – Project in his company and start to work on it parallel to the training, already.. It is also possible that 2 candidates take a project if the belong to the same company. Selection can be supported by the trainer and he may give some advices regarding tool application.. The trainer takes also the role of a Coach and you may ask him for a support during this period. This Coaching is limited to smaller topics but if you need additional help then we can arrange an intensive Coaching, of course. You should be aware that there are many potential obstacles and risks along such complex projects and if you can’t receive help because lack of coaching then the probability for a collapse of the project will increase.

Training dates:

  • Module 1: 5 days
  • Module 2: 5 days
  • Coaching as necessary

  • Statistical tests – complete Roadmap incl. non parametric tests
  • Sampling theory – Review and add on (interactions between sample size, Power and Risks), Sampling strategy according to ISO 2859, practical meaning, basics of the hypergeometric distribution, Roadmap for a suitable sampling strategy in your company
  • FMEA and data based interfaces between product criteria, sampling tests and capability figures
  • Complete Roadmap for ANOVA and statistical background
  • Regression analysis, complete Roadmap for linear and non linear models, risks of problems with multicollinearity, binary coding, best subsets, provement of models
  • Logistic regression analysis
  • Complete Roadmap for DoE, with screening experiments, response surface designs

  • Six Sigma Deployment

Scope of services:

  • Detailed training documentation (in paper and as .pdf.-files)
  • Coaching of your project ba an experienced Master Black Belt (limited)
  • Numerous data files, tools for exercises
  • Certificate “Six Sigma Green Belt”
