Course Description

Learn how to analyse data with the Six Sigma methodology using inferential statistical techniques to determine confidence intervals and to test hypotheses based on sample data. You will also review cause and effect techniques for root cause analysis.

You will learn how to perform correlation and regression analyses in order to confirm the root cause and understand how to improve your process and plan designed experiments.

You will learn how to implement statistical process control using control charts and quality management tools, including the 8 Disciplines and Failure Modes and Effects Analysis to reduce risk and manage process deviations.

To complement the lectures, learners are provided with interactive exercises, which allow learners to see the statistics "in action." Learners then master the statistical concepts by completing practice problems. These are then reinforced using interactive case-studies, which illustrate ...

To complement the lectures, learners are provided with interactive exercises, which allow learners to see the statistics "in action." Learners then master the statistical concepts by completing practice problems. These are then reinforced using interactive case-studies, which illustrate the application of the statistics in quality improvement situations.

Upon successful completion of this program, learners will earn the Technical University of Munich Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification, confirming mastery of the fundamentals of Lean Six Sigma to a Yellow Belt level, based on the American Society of Quality's Body of Knowledge for the Certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt.

This is one of the best courses I have attended. Lectures are interesting and not too long. Actually lectures are often divided in to 15min sections, so you can learn even if you have only 20min. This course is a part of three course series and it has really a lot of practical examples from many different fields of business too. Exercises are manageable also for a person without technical background. Questions can are discussed on the discussion board and if you have a question you get an answer very quickly. Course staff replies are very fast too. Certificate price seems to be reasonable to me. Enjoy the course!

This is one of three courses in the series and it does not disappoint. The content of the material was relevant and the instructors are very knowledgeable and responsive. I would definitely recommend this course if you have or do not have experience in Six Sigma. I will be using the knowledge gained during this class to prepare for the green belt exams.

It is very fulfilling experience to complete the requirements of this course. The new knowledge I gained from the three courses are awesome. Since day one of the course, all interesting facts about quality improvement and processes enlightened my queries. This course really like a brick and mortar learning from the start and exceeded my expectations and I am sure other learners also will agree with me. I am a Civil Engineer in construction industry taking up my MBA and this course gave me interest even more on quality that I can apply in our industry. We all know that manufacturing and construction are on opposite side of the table but incorporating the success of six sigma and lean in manufacturing will greatly contribute on the improvement not only with the quality but also in the iron triangle (cost, scope and time).

If you are new to Six Sigma like me, this course will greatly expand your skills and knowledge. The course includes many examples, practical exercises, real life case studies, and guest lecturers. These help to reinforce concepts, apply the math, and master the topics. It's not an easy course for beginners, but nothing that hard work and motivation can't overcome. Pay attention to the due dates of quizzes! Note: I am new to edX. I found this course just before it started. The predecessor course, Six Sigma: Define and Measure was already finished. One can/should audit it. I hope it becomes available again in the near future for those interested in certification. Many thanks to the staff at TUM and edX for an excellent program!

It has been a very interesting course. Lessons are well-structure and very completed to know how to apply DMAIC for processes. Although I worked as a quality engineer, some of the tools here explained were new for me (I think six sigma tools are used depending on how updated/lean the industrial sector is). So, I am completely satisfied with this course and indeed, I will make use of this methodology to work through lean sig sigma from now on. Also thanks to Pr. Holly Ott from her great explanations and preparation of the lessons. Spain

One of the best online course for 6 sigma. This course has helped me professionally as well as personally, whether taking a decision or solving a problem arised. Very well articulated, elaborately explained with proper usage of tools and most importantly usage of formulae & examples for numerical problem solving. Discussion forum to share and learn from your peers and getting your doubts clearly by the staff, who promptly reply to every query posted. Thank you everyone who structured this course as is and my best wishes for your future endeavors.

I did not have any prior knowledge of Quality Management but have always known the value, importance, and job demand related to this topic. I am very glad that i enrolled for this course, although i have to put little extra efforts and time to understand the material but i am very thankful to Dr. Holly Ott for her special teaching skills to explain every topic in a simple way and with practical examples. I also appreciate the guest speakers and their expertise in the subject. I plan to complete all the three courses of this certificate program as soon as i can. I am into my very first course and within couple of weeks i was motivated to look into CSSGB (Certified Six Sigma Green Belt), as I know CSSGB is going to be very useful for professional advancement. I believe if i understand these three Quality Management courses my foundation to study for CSSGB with be solid. My Humble Gratitude to the entire MOOC team and EdX team and many...
