Six Sigma Black Belt Certification 

Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a cross functional experience to assist individuals in being able to utilize statistical tools and measures to reduce variation. It is a 120-hour program, with an open book test on the last day. The content is designed to cover the majority of the ASQ Body of Knowledge. The format allows participants to work on projects between classes, either individually or in teams, utilizing the tools learned. This program is more extensive in nature to that of the Green Belt and much more detail is explored with each topic. The course follows the D-M-A-I-C national model in the learning process. A list of topics is as follows:

Introduction to Statistical Thinking - Define

    • Six Sigma Concepts
    • Project Selection
    • DMAIC Process - Pareto Analysis
    • Concepts of Variability - Initial Capability Analysis
    • Basic Statistics & Graphical Tools - Project Charter
    • Central Limit Theorem - Project Schedules
    • Project Management - Team and Meeting Management

Measure - Analyze

    • Voice of the Customer - Histogram and Box Plots
    • Voice of the Process - Run Charts
    • VOC/VOP Matrix Hypothesis - Testing & Confidence Intervals
    • Quality Function Deployment - Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
    • Process Mapping - Determining Key Drivers
    • Data Collection - Potential Failure Mode and Effects Analysis
    • Measurement Systems Analysis - R&R

Improve - Control

  • Process Flow Improvements - Fundamentals of Process Control
  • Design of Experiments - Variables Control Charts
  • Variance Components - Analysis ANOVA
  • Mistake Proofing - Attribute Control Charts
  • Process Capability Analysis - Procedure and Control Plan Development Training

This program qualifies as the equivalent of TM490 (Advanced Six Sigma Quality). Students may receive 3 credits toward their program through the School of Graduate Studies at CCSU.
