Lean Six Sigma Data Analysis (Online)
Prerequisite Course Required:
Before taking this course, registrants must complete Business Process Improvement Using Lean Six Sigma and Performance Metrics.
This course provides both the theoretical background and practical skills necessary to effectively apply the Six Sigma methodology in your business. It uses the powerful and proven concepts developed in statistical process control and provides you with the knowledge, tools and guidelines to apply them quickly and effectively within the DMAIC model. The focus is less on theory and more on how to apply these influential tools to conduct projects in your business. Understanding proper data collection methods and using the proper analysis tool from the myriad of possibilities will be emphasized. Data analysis techniques to uncover the root causes for process failure will be investigated, as well as how to implement lasting controls for sustained process improvement success.
