Training Information

The Six Sigma Green Belt takes the role of a Project Leader of Six Sigma Improvement Projects. He is responsible for the success and the improvement of the 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 10-day Six Sigma Green 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.

Goal(s):

  • 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 Green Belt -Project in your direct environment of responsibility.
  • You can handle standardized tools of Project management in order to manage and guide your Green 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 Green 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..

Target group:

Employees and Management staff from all departments of production and Service companies

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 they 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. You should be aware that there are many potential obstacles and risks along such complex projects and if you can’t receive help because of a lack of coaching then the probability for a collapse of the project will increase.

Training dates:

  • Module 1: 3 days
  • Module 2: 4 days
  • Module 3: 3 days
  • Coaching as necessary
The goal of the Define phase is to 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 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
  • Basics of statistics, KPI‘s
  • Basic requirements for reliable and representative data collection Measurement system analysis (Gage analysis)
  • Determination of suitable sample sizes
  • Analysis of process capability
  • Graphical data analysis
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 visualisation
  • 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
  • Basics of regression analysis
  • Analysis of variance
  • Design of Experiments (DoE)
  • Determination of transfer functions in the sense of Y=f(x)
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
  • 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 by an experienced Master Black Belt (limited)
  • Numerous data files, tools for exercises
  • Certificate “Six Sigma Green Belt”
  • Free space for exchange and knowledge transfer

The following requirements apply to the certification of Six Sigma Green Belt projects:

  • The Green Belt project was evaluated by the client according to the following criteria with at least satisfactory:
    • The project achieved measurable results
    • The project was appropriately communicated in the organization
    • The applied methodology and lessons learned are not only known to the project leader but shared with others
    • The scope of the project was kept as documented in the project charter
    • As part of the project further optimization potential was identified
    • The Green Belt project was evaluated by the Master Black Belt (instructor) according to the following criteria:
      • The project has completed at least the improve phase
      • The project was recognizable by the DMAIC methodology
      • Project charter exists according to the template
      • SIPOC or a process flow diagram is available
      • The customer voice is available and CTQs / CTBs have been derived
      • A cause – impact analysis was made and the inputs were prioritized
      • A data collection plan has been prepared containing the main CTQs / CTBs as well as the main inputs
      • Where applicable, the improvement of the process has been demonstrated by statistical and / or graphic comparison between the process’ reference performance and the improved state
      • Where appropriate, performing a measurement system analysis (Gage R & R)
      • Where necessary, a project risk analysis or process risk analysis has been performed
      • At least one of the listed statistical test methods was used: hypothesis testing, regression analysis, variance analysis
      • Where appropriate, control charts were introduced in the improved process
