Planning for Six Sigma Quality

Planning for Six Sigma Quality (4 days)

Workshop Content

This four-day workshop is the second in the series of Omnex Unified Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt training programs. This program develops knowledge and skills for planning, organizing and leading Lean/Six Sigma Improvement Project Teams as they plan to achieve Six Sigma Quality. This workshop offers instruction and practice in measuring and improving process quality levels (measured as Sigma Levels). Participants will learn how to plan for Six Sigma Quality using The DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) Method for quality improvement. This workshop covers the Define and Measure stages of DMAIC. Participants will learn how to create process maps, to determine the cost of poor quality for a process; and, to measure and report the process yield, capability and sigma level.

Workshop Goals

To develop knowledge and skills for leading Six Sigma Quality Improvement Teams. For the Lean/Six Sigma teams to complete the Define and Measure stages of DMAIC quality improvement process. To be able to identify and quantify the quality improvement opportunities in your process. To be able to perform process capability studies and determine Sigma Levels for any process measure.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is intended for Champions and Omnex Unified Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt Candidates responsible for improving quality and productivity in manufacturing operations. This training is team-based training. The team should include the Process Champion and up to four Omnex Unified Lean/Six Sigma Black Belt Candidates. There is a limit of 3 teams per session.
