Six Sigma Overview
What is Six Sigma?

...It Depends on Your Perspective!


Six Sigma is a term coined by Motorola that emphasizes the improvement of processes for the purpose of reducing variability and making general improvements. It is a meshing of several quality tools into a total quality methodology. When used properly, Six Sigma can provide amazing results to any company's bottom line.

Six Sigma is a rigorous methodology that focuses on consistently developing and delivering virtually perfect products and services. Six Sigma is also a management strategy in which statistical tools are used to achieve greater profitability and breakthrough gains in quality.

Six Sigma is beneficial by driving data driven decisions instead of "by the seat of the pants" decision making. It has been shown to improve a company’s overall competitive advantage. Motorola, GE, and Allied Signal have all been tied to Six Sigma methodology with substantial benefits being gained as a result.

Six Sigma Awareness Green Belt Training

Green Belts are a vital component to any successful Six Sigma program. Many organizations begin Six Sigma deployments by training Champions and Black Belts, then quickly realize they need to involve to larger critical mass of people to achieve breakthrough level results and culture change. Qsys  Green Belt training is among the most challenging and robust curricula offered. Qsys goal is not to just train Green Belts, but to develop the very best Green Belts in the world. With that goal in mind, Qsys maps both traditional work on a Six Sigma project concurrent to training, and expects students to take exams and subject themselves to a challenging experience.

Six Sigma Black Belt Training

This course will be in five modules spread over six months for a total of 15 training days.

The unique features of the Six Sigma BB module are :

  • Process Improvement tools will be taught in a very simple and effective manner for real application and there will be no fancy jargons and statistics.
  • All the tools are taught with respect to Shop floor (Gemba) application. 
  • A compilation of the case studies will be gi ven as part of the course material for easy understanding of the tools.Each participant is required to complete “Two” Process Improvement Projects using the tools taught. There will be a 2-day review and presentation module at the end, in which the Projects will be reviewed and decision taken on the Black Belt Certification. Participants will be provided support through e-mail and phone in their Projects.
  • There will a very exhaustive Objective type written test that will be conducted at the end of every module and also during Module 5 to ensure that the participants have fully understood all the tools. 
  • Qsys will issue a Black Belt Certificate to successful candidates.
  • Benefit to the Individual .Industry
  • The Certified Black Belts will acquire the skills of Problem Solving and making Process improvements in a very scientific manner. They will be of great resource to the Organization in their Process/Design trouble-shooting and can help in making Process improvements very fast and effectively.
  •  During the BB certification module, each participant should complete one process improvement project. This will ensure that the Organization gets benefited and they get the Return on Investment. For example, if the Organization nominates 2 people for the module, there will be Two Projects completed in the Organization.
  • In addition to the individual projects, there will also be one Project per Organization that needs to be completed during the training Module. 
  • The team will be guided for effective application of the tools during the entire certification process.
    It is a process that structures work into Project Charters that clearly define the Business Opportunity, Project Goals and Potential Benefits that directly link to Strategic Critical Success Factors, Customer Value and Bottom Line results

Time Plan five Modules

Eligibility Criteria for  Black Belt Course :

a) Application requirements

Should attend the 15-day CII Black Belt training workshop, which is spread over a period of 6 months, and actively participate during the training sessions.

Should complete “Two Six Sigma Projects” during the 6 months of the training workshop and show tangible savings as an outcome of the project.

  • One Six Sigma Project should be completed as an Organizational level project – All the four phases of the DMAIC should be completed for the project.
  • One six-sigma project should be completed individually – All the four phases of the DMAIC should be completed for the project.

Both the projects should be presented in the class and will be evaluated for the following criteria:

  • Nature of the Project undertaken
  • Application of the DOE tools
  • Conclusions made using the Tools
  • Type of Process improvement actions implemented
  • Amount of benefits and savings realized.

b) Academic requirements

  • There will be continuous assessment tests that will be conducted for every module. 30% of the marks will be taken for the final evaluation from these tests. There will be four continuous assessment tests.
  • There will be a final exam held in the last module. 70% of the marks will be taken for the final evaluation for this exam.
  • Both these put together, each participant should get a minimum of 70% to clear the exam.
  • Each participant who has successfully met the criteria for both the academic and the application requirements will be certified as “Black Belt”.

Key Organizational requirements for successful Six Sigma Implementation

  • Top Management commitment and involvement is very key for the successful completion of all the Six Sigma projects
  • Top Management should conduct reviews on the progress of the project with the Black Belt (person who is attending the training modules) every week
  • The Black Belt should select his team based on the process knowledge domain required and should conduct review with his team every 3-4 days
  • The selected participants should be released from their “daily work routine" during the six-month period for the successful implementation of the methodology.

What Makes a Good Six Sigma Project
"Where the Tire Meets the Road"
A defined, quantified objective that is to be achieved using the Six Sigma Structure / Processes.
Three Critical Factors

  • Directly aligned with the Enterprise's Strategy
  • Clear "Line of Sight" to customer and stakeholder perceived value
  • Significant contribution to the "Bottom Line"
  • Aligned with Enterprise Strategy

The Project must clearly contribute to achieving the Strategic Objectives of the organization
Projects may support an organization's function's Strategic Objectives that, in turn, support the achievement of the Enterprise's Strategic Objectives
Clear "Line of Sight" to Customer / Stakeholder perceived value
Specific, quantifiable goals are established for the project that are perceived as high "Value Adding" by Customers/Stakeholders
For example: Projects that improve critical internal processes might reduce cycle times resulting in

  • Reduced costs that increase the bottom line or reduce prices to end users
  • Shorter delivery times that increase customer satisfaction
  • Greater product flexibility that produces significant product differentiation
  • Significant contribution to the "Bottom Line"

Ultimately, the project's benefits should result in significant benefits to the enterprise's "Bottom Line"
Three aspects of the benefits

  • Reducing the spending of real "Green Dollars"
  • Reallocating assets to higher value-added work
  • Positioning the enterprise to take advantage of future market opportunities
  • Six Sigma Deployment
