Students are provided an overview of Lean, Six Sigma and the DMAIC problem solving methodology. Included are both statistical and non-statistical techniques used for continuous process improvement such as process definition, process flow diagrams, data collection techniques, measurement techniques, causes of process variation, pareto diagrams, histograms, cause and effect diagrams, control charts and process capability analysis.
The interactive classroom experience emphasizes strategic thinking, flexibility, teamwork and communication skills. Students work in teams to create specific plans for an organization using these Lean Six Sigma concepts. Students should expect to spend between 4-5 hours per week on coursework outside of the classroom.
