Improve company processes and identify hidden potentials. With the DMAIC cycle from Six Sigma, you can filter key improvement activities, measure and implement them and possibly transfer these to other business areas.
▶ Methods for structuring problems, tests of hypotheses and creativity techniques
▶ Statistical tools for process and problem analysis
▶ Management and elaboration of quality improvement projects with Minitab
▶ Practical application: innovative case studies and company-specific project
Group of Participants
Project leaders, quality managers, experts or executives in the service or production industry with at least one year of professional experience
Six Sigma offers a framework for action in the systematic planning and effective execution of sustainable improvement projects based on the DMAIC cycle. With the embedded methods, root causes for difficult problems in processes can be identified, allowing sustainable solutions to be developed based on statistical analyses. Measurable results have been primarily achieved in the areas of process costs and waste reduction as well the reduction of throughput times.
The course consists of two presence modules of four days each and a project phase that takes place between the two modules. In the two attendance phases, knowledge is built on the basis of lectures, group work and case levels and practiced with the statistical software Minitab on the institute's own computers.
In the practical project phase, the participants carry out an independent Six Sigma improvement project in their company.
