Classifying and Collecting Data
This course covers business process improvement and data – specifically, how to collect it and classify it. Both of these are critical skills for process improvement. With this data, you can use Lean, Six Sigma, and Lean Six Sigma concepts and practices to measure and improve each stage of your process. This course introduces process control and the basic types of data, such as qualitative and quantitative data, as well as measurement scales. You will learn the elements of a data collection plan, and how to use data collection tools, such as surveys and checklists, to improve process design. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge, and is designed to assist Yellow Belt candidates toward achieving their certification.

Lean Tools and FMEA
In order to conduct an effective process improvement initiative within your organization, you’ll need to research the process that’s currently in place. It’s vital that you also implement a robust process control system. This course introduces common Lean tools that can help you when carrying out business process improvement. You’ll learn how to use some common tools that Six Sigma has adapted from Lean, such as 5S and value stream mapping. You’ll also explore other Lean Six Sigma techniques, such as how to conduct a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), which is used to identify potential failures in a process design and assess the risk they pose.
