Six Sigma Laboratory
TI Course Number 4039
This unique 10 week course applies Six Sigma theory and methodology to a real quality problem. The class works at a Chicago-area company to address a specific quality problem. Implementing Six Sigma strategies, team members work to intricately and methodically solve the problem or a series of problems.
This class presents students the opportunity to get the experience of solving a real-live quality problem in an actual company setting. Since this laboratory course focuses on the applications of Six Sigma Methodology and tools emphasizing DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control), DFSS (Design For Six Sigma), IDOV (Identify, Design, Optimize, and Validate.)and others, it is recommended that those interested in registering for this course be familiar with these tools and methodologies.
Other tools and methodologies that may be used include:
- Gantt and Pareto Charts,
- Process Mapping,
- Probability and Probability Distributions,
- Hypothesis Testing,
- Process Capability,
- Statistical Process Control,
- Design of Experiments,
- Gage R&R
- and Multi-Vari Charts
Additionally, the use of statistics software may be demonstrated and used in the project.
The Six Sigma Lab course is an advanced course and presumes knowledge of prerequisite tools used in a Six Sigma project and applied to a real manufacturing problem. Only students who feel ready for this level of activity should take this course.
