Register Design for Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training

The course is a Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) team member training and highlights the basics of Design for Six Sigma and is targeted to a wide audience of team members who need familiarity with the overall process and the basic process development and improvement tools.

The Yellow Belt is needed to run experiments, gather data, participate in process development, problem solving, and add their expertise to the exploration process. A Yellow Belt typically has a basic knowledge of design for Six Sigma, and is often responsible for the development of process maps to support dfss projects. A Yellow Belt participates as a core team member or subject matter expert on projects.
In addition, Yellow Belts may often be responsible for running smaller process development and improvement projects using the DMADV methodology. The Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Validate  methodology is presented with case studies and examples drawn from Service, Business Process, and Manufacturing applications.

A certification is awarded upon successfully finishing the course. Upgradeable to DFSS Green Belt for additional week of training for those who would like to work through a company project with the coaching of the instructor.


Course Objectives

As a result of attending this course the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the evolution, role, importance, relevance, and potential of DFSS and Six Sigma in service process improvement

  • Gain an in-depth knowledge of Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Validate (DMADV)

  • Create effective performance measurements

  • Learn how to select and manage DMADV projects

  • Understand and determine customer requirements

  • Discover wasteful processes and eliminate them

  • Grasp basics of accurate data collection techniques and how to create information from simple tools

  • Familiarize participants with the foundations of analytical tools, graphical analysis and basic Six Sigma analytics

Who Should Attend?

This course will introduce service personnel and the majority of the workforce to DFSS.   Hence, a previous in-depth Six Sigma experience with new service design process knowledge is not required. However, if you intend to organize and manage DFSS projects, we recommend the more comprehensive DFSS Green or Black Belt training.  Participants for this course are typically from wide range of service industries such as banking, financial services, IT, health care, retail, hospitality, distribution, education, and government.
