Six Sigma, Lean Six Sigma and Transactional Six Sigma**

Lean Six Sigma course

David Hutchins Innovation is a global leader in Quality and Leadership related Corporate training and work place Distance Learning.

All of our Six Sigma and Hoshin Kanri related courses can be conducted either in house (minimum number apply) or by Distance Learning through Workplace agreement*

There are 4 distinct Modules in the DHIQC approach, if conducted in house they are each of 5 days duration separated by one to two months during which the participants are expected to carry out a project to demonstrate their understanding of the process whilst at the same time making the training at least self funding:

1. Yellow Belt – This covers the basic Problem solving tools and group dynamics.

Work related project

2. Green Belt – This is an extension of the Yellow Belt course going into greater depth on the problem solving tools and introducing decision making based on facts, involving the basic statistical diagnostic tools.

Work related project

3. Brown Belt – This includes all of the basic Lean Concepts such as 5S, Jidoka, SMED, TPM, JIT, ANDON, Kanban, Theory of Constraints,

Work related project

4. Black Belt – During this course, the student is introduced to more sophisticated tools for statistical analysis such as Design of Experiments, Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Multivariate analysis, Cusum Charts etc.

Final work related project

Please note that the DHIQC Certificates for each of these stages will be awarded on the demonstration of achievement in the projects not simply on the coursework.

Master Black Belt can be awarded after a further 2 years provided that the DHIQC course has been completed and that there is clear evidence of the participant having managed a company Six Sigma programme and participated in teams as a facilitator.

*Workplace agreement. For these courses, the participants are required to conduct a work related assignment or project running in parallel with the study programme. The assignments are selected by agreement between the participants employer, the Participant and DHIQC. The assignment must have a potentially significant tangible benefit resulting in an estimated minimum of at least 10 times the cost of the course taking into account any work time allocated.

** Transactional Six Sigma. This is essentially the same as traditional Six Sigma except that it applies to Service and other industries where the output is not a physical product. This applies also to the Public sector in most cases
