Six Sigma

Our Six Sigma program features the region’s only team of Master Black Belts who work on-site to support and mentor clients from their initial project identification and selection to successful completion.

 

Overview

DVIRC’s Six Sigma consulting services, including on-site Six Sigma Green Belt, Yellow Belt, and Black Belt certifications, are intended for those who hope to further understand the roles that Continuous Improvement, waste reduction, and other Lean principles play within key business functions. Our instructors can bring the classroom to you in an easy-to-manage timeframe, according to your needs. The curriculum is based on a “learn and apply” approach, during which participants collaborate with our coaches to work on a real-world project at their company.

Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Through our introductory Yellow Belt program, participants learn the basics of Six Sigma concepts and tools using the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) methodology. This two-day course will give you a solid Six Sigma foundation focusing on Root Cause and Corrective/Preventative Actions and an introduction to Basic Statistics and Data Interpretation.  This is not a prerequisite for Six Sigma Green Belt and can be taken independently.

Six Sigma Green Belt

Through our Green Belt program, participants gain an in-depth knowledge of how to apply Six Sigma concepts and tools, including control charting, capability analysis, measurement system analysis, and a deep understanding of statistical skills and their applications, using the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) methodology. We take comprehensive steps to ensure that every Green Belt participant can function independently, requiring minimal Master Black Belt support. This is an important part of enabling graduates to deliver measurable value to their organizations. During the 13-day training, all participants are required to complete a Six Sigma project based off of a challenge they are facing in their company.

Six Sigma Black Belt

DVIRC’s innovative Black Belt course is specifically developed for professionals and Certified Green Belt practitioners. Graduates learn to lead teams and support improvement projects that are essential to their company. Black Belt graduates understand how to analyze non-normal data and conduct Designs-of-Experiments to improve process control and reduce production costs. Many go on to become capable leaders of larger teams and serve as technical resources for their organization’s Green Belts. Participants who pass the comprehensive final exam, complete their project, and present their results are certified Black Belts.

The DVIRC Difference

Since 1994, DVIRC has used the learn-and-apply method to train thousands of individuals, generating millions of dollars in value-added impact along the way. Our Six Sigma programs offer a dollar-for-dollar return on investment (ROI) guarantee for every completed project. These innovative and comprehensive programs include instruction, custom-designed activities and assignments, highly effective proven business simulations, and hands-on practice with numerous tools and techniques. Our Master Black Belt instructors work with participants until their projects provide a value-added impact equal to (or greater than) the program investment. We take comprehensive steps to ensure all Six Sigma students are trained to a level where they can function independently and require minimum Master Black Belt Support, creating an immediate, and annuity cost savings.
