Synopsis:

The course is aimed at practical application of how the individual components (methods and techniques - mainly applied statistical methods and techniques) used in this approach and a common application of these components throughout the DMAIC cycle (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control).

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

Six Sigma (basics and history of the approach, methodology and focus), the application of Six Sigma in production and in service provision;

Relationship of Six Sigma and Lean Management, linking Six Sigma project goals with organizational strategy;

Basic description of the DMAIC methodology;

DEFINE - to select the project for the application of Six Sigma, project team and project planning;

DEFINE - stakeholder analysis (analysis of the relationship matrix the choice of communication strategy for individual stakeholders);

DEFINE - determining the voice of the customer (VOC) and identifying CTQ (Critical to Quality);

DEFINE / MEASURE - mapping the process;

MEASURE - process capability, determination of the causes and identify root causes;

MEASURE - planning, data collection, collecting

data (data types, data collection form, the operational definition for measuring and monitoring, security and authentication, validity of data);

ANALYZE - analysis of data (graphical analysis, correlation and regression analysis, hypothesis testing, reliability of equipment and products),

verifying the accuracy of identification of root causes;

IMPROVE - design, prioritization and selection of alternative solutions, design of experiments (checking the influence of various factors and finding the right setting);

IMPROVE - implementation of improvements;

CONTROL ? confirming the accuracy of the process improvement (SPC - Statistical Process Control - control charts); closure of the Six Sigma project.
