Training Information

The Six Sigma Yellow Belt takes the role of an active supporter and / or team member in Six Sigma projects. Therefore he must have an overview about the whole tool set and methodology. Yellow Belts should collaborate with single Six Sigma Green Belts and Black Belts during Six Sigma improvement projects.

Very often a qualification to a Six Sigma Yellow Belt is the first step to the Green Belt qualification or Six Sigma Black Belt, later on. A Six Sigma Yellow Belt -Training provides the basics for the most important methods and it will be a contributor to a better understanding of Six Sigma in your organisation. The contents fulfil and exceed the requirements of the American Society for Quality (ASQ).

  • You will get a fundamental understanding about the Six Sigma process (DMAIC Roadmap)
  • You know the way of a typical project and most important tools
  • You will be able to support Six Sigma projects, active

Target group:

Employees and Management staff from business segments and departments of producing companies and also Service providers

Training contents:

The most important methods will be presented in an end-to-end case study and, in some cases, deepened in the workshops. Part of the contents of the Green Belt training will be used.

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 of the 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
  • Process diagram (SIPOC, Supplier, Input, Process, Output, Customer)
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 system analysis (Gage analysis)
  • 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)
  • Development of hypothesis and planning of trials and measurements
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
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)

Scope of services:

  • Detailed training documentation (in paper and as .pdf.-files)
  • Numerous data files, tools for exercises
  • Certificate “Six Sigma Yellow Belt”
  • Free space for exchange and knowledge transfer
