About Six Sigma Black Belt Training


Who is Six Sigma Black Belt Training for?

Any professional determined to improve their organization, salary, and candidacy for promotion should become a Six Sigma Black Belt. All companies whether providing products or services possess opportunity for improvement as do all functions within those companies. Six Sigma is an organizational excellence system applicable to any product, process, or service. This includes production / manufacturing, materials / logistics, purchasing, maintenance, quality, manufacturing engineering, product engineering, sales, marketing, human resources, IT, and finance. Six Sigma exposes upcoming professionals to managerial tasks they may not otherwise have. And, an increasing number of companies require Six Sigma certification for advancement into managerial roles. In our course, Jackson students learn:

Six Sigma Black Belt Training Course Overview:

Six Sigma Black Belt training gives Jackson students a full arsenal of world-best improvement powers enhanced with statistical software like Minitab. Six Sigma Black Belt training conveys technical and managerial skills more advanced than the Green Belt level. Technical skills are more complex and intense therefore often computer-aided using software such as Minitab or Excel-based SigmaXL.

What are Black Belt Level Tools?

Our training covers the full Black Belt body of knowledge led by an experienced Master Black Belt who will help you every step of the way.

Define. First, opportunities for improvement must be defined, contained, and rallied around. We make sure that we're working on the right problem and stakeholder understanding is aligned with the mission. Since Kaizen, and 8D are available for small to medium sized improvements, Six Sigma is sometimes reserved for major, breakthrough projects such as a company's top 5 financial initiatives. Projects are always done in teams. Managerial tools used include: project management, cost-benefit analysis, team member selection, team formation, change management, project charters, policy generation usually for creating or updating containment-related work instructions, and training. Technical tools include: trend charts, Pareto charts, Y to X Mapping and other scoping techniques, inspection / testing. Key deliverables include quantifying the problem's annual financial impact, and diminishing the customer's suffering immediately.

Measure. The team must be certain all decisions that follow are made from trustworthy data. The Black Belt level Measurement System Analysis (MSA) tool for this is Gage R&R. Both non-destructive and destructive test methods are presented and reinforced with a fun, hands-on exercise. Click the link to see more detail on this topic.

Analyze. Causes must be found. Many root cause analysis techniques exist: 5 Why's, cause and effect (fishbone or Iskikawa) diagram, fault tree analysis, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), regression, walking the process, etc. And all of these are covered in our training. But, none prove causality like component swapping and Design of Experiments (DOE). While the maximum DOE from our Green Belt course was 3-factor, 2-level full factorial, Black Belts learn fractional factorial plus response surface mapping. DOE training is reinforced by continuing our fun hands-on exercise.

Improve. Causes must be permanently eliminated, which is why you may have heard the phrase, "permanent corrective action". Unfortunately, many folks use this phrase to describe actions with no permanence. Many Corrective Action Request (CAR) and 8D reports contain responses to this question like "retrained the operator" which is usually an insufficient response. The best form of corrective action is error-proofing; some change that literally makes recurrence impossible. Next best would be other physical changes making recurrence extremely unlikely. To help students choose an action, we teach Payoff Matrix, Criteria Matrix, and conduct another cost-benefit analysis to make sure intended actions will reduce total cost. Actions are piloted. If the pilot succeeds, then actions are launched into production.

Control. In the Improve Phase, if error proofing was not possible, then actions must be controlled. Many techniques are covered in training but the signature method is Statistical Process Control (SPC). Several process control chart types are presented to accommodate different data types; attribute data vs. variable data although variable is always recommended. Managerial tools covered include change control, policy writing, training, mentorship, auditing, and supervision.

Jackson

Chimneyville - The City with Soul

Excellent choice! Jackson was established as a trade route village on the Pearl River connect to markets in Tennessee and travel from New Orleans. It was chosen to serve as the state's capital due to being the most habitable central location, beautiful surroundings, potable and navigable water, and timber. Road and railway connections were made to adjacent cities. Saloons, casinos, and Blues music flourished. Riverboat gaming followed. Legal and medical excellence evolved notably at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Levees and a canal system were built. Now, Jackson is home to several major industries including electrical equipment, processed food, and metal products. Surrounding areas remain agriculturally-focused including livestock, soybeans, cotton, and poultry. Jackson offers many after-class entertainment options such as the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, Jackson Zoological Park, and LeFleur's Bluff State Park.

Our Master Black Belt introduced improved quality and manufacturing processes. Our company was moving to become ISO certified. He and I, plus one other, came from the automotive side and certified in ISO. Further, we had QS experience which was a more concentrated standard to allow all automotive companies to work to the same quality and manufacturing standard. He was also familiar with TS quality standards.
