It is highly recommended that you complete the "Yellow Belt Specialization" and the course "Six Sigma and the Organization (Advanced)" before beginning this course.

In this course, your instructors will introduce you to, and have you apply, some of the tools and metrics that are critical components of Six Sigma. This course will provide you with the advanced knowledge of team dynamics and performance, process analysis, probability, statistics, statistical distributions, collecting and summarizing data, measurement systems analysis, process and performance capability, and exploratory data analysis associated with Six Sigma and Lean.

Every module will include readings, videos, and quizzes to help make sure you understand the material and concepts that are studied.

Course 2 of 4 in the Six Sigma Green Belt Specialization


Syllabus


WEEK 1

Yellow Belt Refresher - Team Basics

This module is a Yellow Belt Refresher Area, since some learners may have entered this course without having taken the previous yellow belt material. This refresher area does not serve as a "replacement" for taking the yellow belt specialization. It is only a "patch" for those who already have some knowledge of six sigma, but find the yellow belt specialization to be too introductory for their current situation. If you find yourself struggling with the green belt material in this course, it is highly recommended that you travel through the yellow belt specialization before attempting the green belt content. In this module you will learn about team development, different types of teams, tools for decision making, and tools for communication.


WEEK 2

Process Analysis and Documentation

In this module you will learn the application of process maps and flow charts swim lane. You will also about the application of: written procedures and works instructions, CEDAC, the Pareto diagram, and the relationship matrix.


WEEK 3

Probability and Statistics - pt1

In this module, you will learn how mutually-exclusive events and independent events relate to probability. You will also learn how to solve basic probability problems, including those that require the addition, multiplicative, and conditional rules of probability.


WEEK 4

Probability and Statistics - pt2

In this module, you will learn how to solve probability problems related to combinations and permutations. You will also learn about central limit theorem and how to apply it to the concept of confidence intervals. This module also touches on descriptive and inferential statistics.


WEEK 5

Statistical Distribution

In this module, you will learn about the basic characteristics of probability distributions. You will also learn about binomial, normal, Poisson, t-, chi-square, and F-distributions.


WEEK 6

COLLECTING AND SUMMARIZING DATA & MEASURING SYSTEM ANALYSIS

In this module, you will learn the different types and sources of data. You will also learn: how to classify groups of data for descriptive statistics analysis, different ways to graphically display data, how to express the importance of measurement systems analysis, and the difference between precision and accuracy. This module also begins with a Yellow Belt Refresher Area, since some learners may have entered this course without having taken the previous yellow belt material. This refresher area does not serve as a "replacement" for taking the yellow belt material. It is only a "patch" for those who already have some knowledge of six sigma, but find the yellow belt specialization to be too introductory for their current situation. If you find yourself struggling with the green belt material in this course, it is highly recommended that you travel through the yellow belt specialization before attempting the green belt content.


WEEK 7

PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE CAPABILITY & EXPLORATORY DATA ANALYSIS

In this module, you will learn how to use statistical tools and analyze data, including skills like: how to distinguish between natural process limits and specification limits, how to calculate the value of Cp and Ck, how to deal with process capability studies. This module also addresses multi-vari studies, the the correlation coefficient, and linear regression.
