Six Sigma

Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology in 5 steps.
  • It was developed and applied for the first time in the 80s from Motorola, primarily to improve product quality. In it's form today, the methodology involves addressing complex problems, whose solution is not known, in 5 steps: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control ((DMAIC).
  • In the 5 steps you can use various tools to improve, from the basic (Ishikawa diagram, 5 Why analysis, Brainstoming, flow chart, etc.) to the statistical (Chart control capability study, system analysis measurement, hypothesis testing, DOE)
  • Regardless of the complexity of the instruments used, the purpose of a Six Sigma project remains the same: finding solutions, whose implementation will lead to the disappearance / decrease the problem addressed.
  • Given the diversity and complexity of instruments used, there are several levels of expertise / training:
  1. Yellow Belt (YB) - basic knowledge level, typical improvement team members, reached after a day of training
  2. Green Belt (GB) - intermediate level skills necessary drivers Six Sigma improvement projects, small and medium complexity. Certification requires 10 days of training, completion of a written examination and successful completion of a real project
  3. Black Belt (BB) - advanced level of knowledge, typical Six Sigma project managers of medium and high complexity and trainers for YB and GB. Certification requires a total of 20 days of training (10 are included and from the GB), completion of a written examination and two Six Sigma projects successfully completed (included in both the draft in the GB).
  4. Master Black Belt (MBB) - advanced level of knowledge, characteristic of complex projects managers, developers of the concept of Six Sigma in organizations and trainers. Certification requires relevant experience as a practitioner BB, followed by training geared specifically to develop leadership skills and implementing change in organizations.
  5. Champion - level knowledge base for Six Sigma. It is useful for managers who want to understand the appropriateness of using Six Sigma tools and those who will identify and allocate improvement projects. Usually requires a day of training.

Six Sigma is a (more complex) methodology problem solving in 5 steps (DMAIC).
Its use requires a good understanding of the implementation steps and good knowledge about applied statistical tools (graphical analysis, SPC, MSA, hypothesis testing, DOE).

At the training level Green Belt (GB) and Black Belt (BB) (Effective Flux delivers these courses this way), certification is conditional on the successful completion of improvement projects, statistically proven. In this way, not only the course but also costs are covered, and one ensures fixing by applying theoretical knowledge acquired in real improvement projects.
To lead the way to their first Six Sigma project, the participants in our courses receive support / advice in running the projects.

Also, companies in which several series of training Six Sigma GB and BB are taking place, the number of projects is large and difficult to manage, that is why Effective Flux provides support for companies interested in choosing, monitoring and management improvement projects. Our consultants have years of experience in selecting, monitoring and management for nearly 200 Six Sigma projects.
