Overview of Six Sigma Courses

Six Sigma refers to a data driven approach for analyzing the operational and transactional processes of a company and modifying or eliminating inefficient steps to improve overall effectiveness and to reduce errors.  The method allows for no more than 3.4 errors every million opportunities.  Today, most manufacturing organizations are unable to meet 6 Sigma requirements due to poorly optimized operational processes. This course trains our students on how to apply the methods they learn to processes they face in a real business setting.  Our teachings combine the proven DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) problem solving method with powerful statistical tools to construct a reliable roadmap to improve any business operation.  Once completed, enrollees to our course will have all the tools and discipline necessary to utilize these methods to optimize their company’s process and achieving Six Sigma status.

Six Sigma Training Services

Here at MMTC, we offer a few various 6 Sigma training programs that reward different levels of certification.  Students have to option to participate in either of the following Six Sigma programs:

    • Black Belts have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles. They have basic knowledge of Lean enterprise concepts, are able to identify non-value-added elements and activities and are able to use specific tools
  • Green Belt Training (3.5 credits, 2 weeks)
    • A down-to-earth blend of DMAIC project management methods and practical data analysis techniques provide employees, at any level of the organization, with new ways to contribute to the bottom line. From executive leaders to front-line employees, Six Sigma Green Belt training enhances the way employees approach their day-to-day work. And when Six Sigma Black and Green Belts are strategically positioned to support each other in the workplace, the improvement potential expands.
