Overview/Description
Organizations should regularly evaluate existing processes to make sure they meet targets and specifications set by their customer and business requirements. Measuring and analyzing process capability and performance enables an organization to report its sigma level and improvement teams to targets their efforts effectively. |n This course explores the key concepts related to process capability and performance, and the methods of measuring and interpreting common performance indices. It also discusses how to verify the stability and normality of a given process and identify key considerations for measuring process capability, such as short-term and long-term capability and sigma shift.This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward their certification and become productive members on their Six Sigma project teams.

Target Audience
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Green Belt certification; also quality professionals, engineers, production managers, and frontline supervisors; process owners and champions charged with the responsibility of improving quality and processes at the organizational or departmental level

Expected Duration (hours)
1.5
