Who Should Attend

Previously trained Green Belts who want to become certified Black Belts.

Performance Focus

If advanced statistical analysis is needed to identify root causes and optimal process improvements, (Lean) Six Sigma Green Belts typically ask Black Belts or Master Black Belts to conduct these analyses. This course will change that. Green Belts wanting to advance their statistical abilities will have a considerable amount of hands-on practice in techniques such as Statistical Process Control, MSA, Hypothesis Testing, Correlation and Regression, Design of Experiments and many others.

Participants will also work throughout the course on a real-world improvement project from their own business environment. This provides participants with hands-on learning and provides the organization with an immediate ROI once the project is completed. IIL instructors will provide free project coaching throughout the course.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use Minitab statistical software
  • Decide on sampling strategies, sample size and confidence intervals
  • Describe the difference between long-term and short-term process capability
  • Measure rework, waste, or scrap by computing yield metrics
  • Develop and analyze control charts for both continuous and discrete data
  • Perform a measurement system analysis
  • Apply hypothesis tests to compare variance, means and proportions
  • Conduct regression and residual analyses
  • Design and analyze experiments
