Course description
Learn how to statistically analyze data with the Six Sigma methodology using inferential statistical techniques to determine confidence intervals and to test hypotheses based on sample data. You will also review cause and effect techniques for root cause analysis. You will learn how to perform correlation and regression analyses in order to confirm the root cause and understand how to improve your process and plan designed experiments. You will learn how to implement statistical process control using control charts and quality management tools, including the 8 Disciplines and Failure Modes and Effects Analysis to reduce risk and manage process deviations. To complement the lectures, learners are provided with interactive exercises, which allow learners to see the statistics “in action.” Learners then master the statistical concepts by completing practice problems. These are then reinforced using interactive case-studies, which illustrate the application of the statistics in quality improvement situations. Upon successful completion of this program, learners will earn the TUM Lean and Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification, confirming mastery of Lean Six Sigma fundamentals to a Yellow Belt level. The material is based on the American Society of Quality ( Body of Knowledge up to a Green Belt Level. The Professional Certificate is designed as preparation for a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt exam.
