Six Sigma – Yellow Belt

Course length: 2 day (16 hours)

Overview: Six Sigma is a set of techniques and tools which seeks to focus on customer requirements through minimizing variability in manufacturing and improving process quality. Six sigma’s emphasis is on improving the capability of a process rather than controlling product quality. This course will get you started using Six Sigma methodology in a statistically productive, hands-on manner.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of data comparison and transactional audit
