Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma are a set of techniques and tools for process improvement developed by Motorola (now a division of Lenovo) to achieve operational excellence.
A Six Sigma process is one in which 99.99966% of all opportunities to produce some feature of a part are statistically expected to be free of defects.
Sigma is defined as: a metric, a methodology and as a management system. At the heart of the methodology is the DMAIC model for process improvement. DMAIC is five phase acronym for:
1. Define opportunity
2. Measure performance
3. Analyse opportunity
4. Improve performance
5. Control performance.
The Lean method is like Six Sigma in stressing greatest efficiency in all characteristics of operations. Six Sigma emphasises eliminating errors within processes. Lean strategy focuses on identifying needless steps that consume effort and resources.
The Six Sigma certification has three levels as Yellow Belt, Green Belt, and Black Belt, all of which are available through CM Training. These include the introductory Six Sigma Awareness and Yellow Belt courses which introduce delegates to the basics of Lean theory and a good understanding of the tools and processes to lead to the more advanced Green Belt Practitioner, Black Belt, Master Black Belt and Design for Six Sigma (dFSS) courses.
Yellow Belt certification is an efficient way to learn the basics of Six Sigma. It is ideal for those who lead limited improvement projects.and those who are supporting improvement projects in a limited role in a Six Sigma team.
Green Belt certification is ideal for those who are part of a Six Sigma Management Team and . those who are assisting with data collection and analysis for improvement projects. Green Belt training will allow you to implement Lean Six Sigma proficiently.
Black Belt certification is for team leaders who manage big improvement. It also helps in problem-solving projects. At the Black Belt level, you will have a thorough understanding of all aspects of Lean Six Sigma
It is not necessary to be certified in all three levels. You can select the level which is most appropriate to organisational needs and/or an individual’s career objectives.
