Six Sigma Yellow Belt Workshop (4 Days)

  1. 1. Six Sigma Yellow Belt Workshop (4 Days) To help sigma improvement team members make improvements in their process by using the Design-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) method. Certification Objectives: Six Sigma Yellow Belt The student will have the opportunity to be Certified as a Six Sigma Yellow Belt by Six Sigma Master Black Belt as follows: 1. Successfully completes the 4-day course and the associated Exam 2. Successfully achieves an overall average of 70% or higher on any quizzes 3. Successfully attains a score of 70% or higher on the final examination 4. If all of these requirements are fulfilled, you will receive an industry recognized Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate of Achievement stating that you are a Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt Audience: Any potential or active team member or team leader would benefit from this course. Anyone participating in process improvement activities in their company. Outline: Learning Objectives: At the end of this workshop, participants will: • Be able to explain in general terms what “six sigma” refers to and why it is relevant to process improvement • Be able to identify the steps and their sequence in DMAIC along with the outputs of and tools in each step • Be able to DEFINE your project’s purpose and scope and get background on the process and the customer o Write a problem statement and a team charter for your sigma project o Identify the areas in which your sigma project will have an impact on the business and provide a rough estimate of the level of impact o Identify the process that your work is part of, and describe how it fits into the larger system o Define CTQs (Critical To Quality characteristics from your customer’s perspective) for the process you are studying and set specifications for them • In MEASURE, be able to focus your improvement efforts by gathering information on the current situation o Identify the data you need to collect for your project, where to collect the data, and the type of data you are collecting o Create operational definitions that are specific, concrete, and measurable and can be used consistently by all members of your team o Given a situation involving a specific product or service, explain the customer’s view of quality in terms of the Taguchi Loss Function
  2. 2. o Differentiate between common and special cause variation using time plots and control charts and select an appropriate response o Look for patterns in your data not related to time using frequency plots and Pareto charts o Calculate process sigma using the actual yield (Method 1) o Create either an activity flowchart or a deployment flowchart for your process using the standard flowchart symbols o Use an opportunity flowchart to identify complexity and waste in your own process o Measure cycle time for your process • In ANALYZE, be able to identify root causes and confirm them with data o Write a focused problem statement o Given a focused problem, identify root causes using a cause-and-effect diagram or a tree diagram that demonstrates causal thinking o Given a set of paired data, be able to use the appropriate tool (either a scatter plot, stratified frequency plot, or table) for verifying a cause and effect relationship • In IMPROVE, develop, try out, and implement solutions that address root causes and use data to evaluate your solutions and the plans used to carry them out o Given a problem with a verified cause, use creative techniques to generate a potential solution o Given several potential solutions, create and use a prioritization matrix, including weighted criteria o Identify and use the five (5) basic elements of a plan: tasks and timelines, budget and resources, stakeholders, check, and potential problem analysis o Given the outcome of an evaluation, use the check reaction table to determine next steps in the project • Be able to CONTROL the process and maintain the gains by standardizing work methods or processes, anticipating future improvements and preserving the lessons from your project o Identify the benefits of standardization o Conduct an active follow-up check meeting o Create a Process Management Chart o Identify ways to bring a project to closure in your own organization o Optional: present project documentation in the class environment using a storyboard format Peak Solutions, Inc. 125 N.
