Six Sigma is a data driven, customer focused and result oriented methodology which uses statistical tools and techniques to systematically eliminate the defects and inefficiency to improve processes. Six Sigma was developed by Motorola in 1986 and since then it has been adopted by all leading companies across industries. Initially GE and Motorola developed certification programs (belt) to verify individuals? expertise on the Six Sigma methods at the relevant skill level - entry level to expert. After that many organizations in the 1990s started offering Six Sigma certifications to their employees. Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB) certification focuses on testing students on their comprehensive understanding of the various Six Sigma tools and techniques in conjunction with Lean. The tools and techniques cover both quantitative and non-quantitative analysis along with other necessary knowledge to improve the production process, minimize inefficiencies, and increase with a greater focus on the practical implementation of these tool and techniques in the organization.
The objective of this course is to develop a comprehensive knowledge base that helps students to function effectively as a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt in various projects.
