Lean 6 Sigma Black Belt Course

Overview – Lean 6 Sigma Black Belt Course

Lean 6 Sigma is a combination of tools from Lean Management and Six Sigma, which focuses on process improvements. Lean tools seek for improving performance by systematically removing waste, and Six Sigma tools focuses on reducing variation. 6 Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) method aims to increase product and service quality and thus customer satisfaction. Lean 6 Sigma, which is came out by the combination of these two concepts, is a globally accepted management strategy that seems effect on processes.

Lean 6 Sigma, analyzes the effects of process inputs on output with many tools and aims to control the variability of the output by controlling the inputs according to the proven effect degree.

Meanwhile, unforeseen losses such as HIDDEN FACTORY are revealed and eliminated.
The gaol of Lean 6 Sigma Black Belt Course is to train experts who can manage Lean 6 Sigma Black Belt and Lean 6 Sigma Green Belt projects in their companies.
