Training Information

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 ware 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:

CEO Level; Manager of business units; Leaders with an ambition for change; people who are involved in OPEX initiatives; Leaders for Industry 4.0 implementation; suppliers who need to start Six Sigma; customers who require Six Sigma; specialists in Data Mining and Process Mining

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 one project if they belong to the same company. Selection can be supported by the trainer. The trainer 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 we can arrange an intensive Coaching. 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
  • Module 3: 5 days
  • Coaching as necessary
The goal of the Define phase isn’t o get a 100% concrete understanding of the project and the existing process situation in the business. Also the scope oft he project must be defined realistic as as well as the goal(s) which must be achieved.. The Project charter fixes all of the general conditions and takes care of all relevant aspects. The project charter can be compared with a contract.

Important tools are:

  • Project Charter
  • Project KPI
  • Six Sigma –Project organisation and Management
  • Project risk analysis
  • Process diagram (SIPOC, Supplier, Input, Process, Output, Customer)
  • VoC, Voice of customer
  • Tools for prioritisation (C&E Matrix, Pareto)
the second stage of a Six Sigma Project contains data collection in order to calculate the actual process capability.

Important tools are:

  • Measurement variables and data type
  • Measurement variables and data type
  • Basics of statistics , KPI‘s
  • Basic requirements for reliable and representative data collection
  • Complete roadmap for Measurement system analysis (Gage analysis) , procedure 1, 2 and 3 inclusive attribute agreement analysis and destroying test procedures
  • Development of suitable  sampling strategies – complete roadmap
  • Process capability analysis for continous and discrete items – complete roadmap
  • Multi vari analysis
  • Modern tools for data analysis with Case Studies
The Analyze-Phase contains a systematic process analysis and it’s the starting point for a root cause detection. It takes the existing process performance as an input and continuous the development of causal chain. All of the potential causes will be investigated and concrete hypothesis will be developed. Then trials and measurements will be initiated in order to prove the hypothesis. The whole root cause will become transparent by data analysis and graphical ones, too. Finally the responsible causes will be known.

Important tools are:

  • Methods for process visualization
  • Risk analysis (Data based FMEA)
  • Ishikawa
  • XY-Matrix
  • Development of hypothesis and planning of trials and measurements
  • Detection of patterns inside of data
  • Hypothesis tests
  • Regression analysis – complete roadmap
  • Analysis of variance – complete roadmap
  • Design of Experiments (DoE) – complete roadnap with Screening experiments, Response surface designs, D-optimal Designs as well as the interface to Data Mining
  • Determination of transfer functions in the sense of Y=f(x)
  • Simulations
In the Improve  phase the process will be modified in a manner that the  Output(s) meet all of the customer requirements

Important tools are:

  • Generation of solutions
  • Generation of solutions
  • Tools for a systematic selection of the best solution
  • Implementation of a solution
  • Cost-Benefit-Analysis
  • Pilot phase
  • Before / after – comparison
In the Control phase there is are developed and implemented a suitable process control concept to avoid that it becomes worse again

Important tools are:

  • Development of a control plan
  • SPC-Control charts (Design, application, interpretation)
  • Process Controlling
  • Project closure

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”
  • Free space for exchange and knowledge transfer

Exam / certificate of attendance Black Belt certificate:

After completion of the training each participate will receive a certificate of attendance for “Six Sigma Black Belt”. After a fulfilment of the certification requirements each candidate will receive an official certificate for a „Six Sigma Black Belt“.
