Six Sigma is a management strategy that uses data measurement tools and statistics to optimize business processes. Initially used by large companies such as Motorola and General Electrics (GE), Six Sigma applies tools and techniques to eliminate defects and reduce process variation. It does this by providing individuals with the expertise to understand and apply Six Sigma methodologies, which focus on improving products, services and processes that contribute substantially to the profitability of the organizations they work for. Sigma, as a statistical term, is used to evaluate to what extent the deviation of given processes differ from perfection. By identifying the number of defects, and then the solutions that eliminate them, you can say that in theory you are operating with “Six Sigma quality”. In other words, with 6 Sigma, the process will be 99.9997% or 99.7 good and have no more than 0.00034% or 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO).
Why should you participate?
The Six Sigma Yellow Belt training allows you to learn the fundamentals of Six Sigma. During this training, you will be able to understand the key problem solving tools and techniques, as well as the DMAIC process. After completing this training, you will be able to sit for the exam and apply for the PECB Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt designation. A PECB Six Sigma Yellow Belt certificate shows that you have understood the fundamental methodologies of Six Sigma.
