Excelerated Six Sigma Training

by David A Lalain published on April 17, 2021

Many organizations, especially Automotive, Electronics, or companies that have practiced ISO/TS 16949 and QS-9000 quality management systems have gained knowledge and skills in techniques like SPC, MSA, and FMEA. Omnex Excelerated Six SigmaTM leverages these skills and knowledge in applying them to the DMAIC Breakthrough Strategy. Simply said, the Excelerated process reduces the classroom time of the traditional Six Sigma training by 50% if Black Belt candidates possess some requisite skills.

Black Belt projects are executed using the steps of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC). In the Define Phase project "y" is defined and ROI is calculated. In the Measure Phase, the current state of the measurements surrounding the project is conducted. In the Analyze Phase, the relationship between the Project y (called the Key Output Variable or KOV) and the Key Input Variables (KIVs) are analyzed. In other words, what external variables affect the output variables? This is a key relationship often requiring advanced statistical tools and experimentation.

Although all the DMAIC tools will be reviewed, it is expected that Black Belt applicants will have had education and practical experience in the following: Systems approach to Product Realization (QOS, MBNQA), Project Management (Advance Product Quality Planning, or APQP), Process Mapping/Flow Charts (Value-Added Mapping), Failure Modes Effects Analysis (FMEA), Control Plan Development, Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA), 7 Basic Tools of Quality, Basic Statistical Process Control (SPC), and Advanced Statistical Process Control (SPC)
