Course description Understand the background and meaning of Six Sigma and the five steps of the DMAIC process improvement flow: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control.

You will learn how to set an improvement project goal, calculate process yield, and identify Critical to Quality parameters. You will learn how to map a process and to use the necessary statistical techniques to establish the baseline performance of a process and to calculate the process capability. To complement the lectures, we provide 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.
