Ed4Online’s Six Sigma Black Belt course offers a step-by-step guide for integrating Six Sigma quality management principles to achieve significant gains in productivity and sales in today's business climate. Problem-solving examples provide the opportunity to practice Six Sigma organization, evaluate customer requirements, improve products and processes and perform the responsibilities and actions necessary for successful deployment. Topics covered include DMAIC and DMADV deployment models, data-driven management, process behavior charts, and the phases, tools, and techniques of the Six Sigma methodology. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets. This course explores quality management methods, including statistical methods, key organizational tips, and methods for plotting growth and performing at peak efficiency for maximum profits and prepares students for the American Society for Quality’s Six Sigma Black Belt Certification (CSSBB) exam.
