  • 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. 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.
