Overview/Description
In the Improve stage of Lean or Lean Six Sigma DMAIC, teams design and conduct experiments to investigate the relationships between input variables and response variables. By controlling and changing the input variables, and observing the effects on the response variables., the Six Sigma team gains a deeper understanding of the relationships and begins business process improvement. In this course, you'll explore the Design of Experiments (DOE) methodology. You’ll learn how to interpret the results of the main effect analysis and interaction plots, and use this to drive process improvement, process control, and process design. This course is aligned with ASQ’s 2015 Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge.

Target Audience
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Green Belt certification; 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

Prerequisites
None
