Six Sigma is a business/project management strategy widely used in many sectors of industry. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. DMAIC is a project execution methodology aimed at improving an existing technical or business process. Lean Six Sigma is a cooperative managerial concept of Lean and Six Sigma that results in the elimination of wastes and improving the value stream.
The objective of this course is to know how to apply Six Sigma methodologies to the chemical and related industries. Also, to apply the DMAIC project roadmap, Lean, as well as to use the Six Sigma work process and statistical toolbox.
This course is directed to the Chemical industry as well as related industries. It is suitable for engineers, technologist and technicians in the chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas industries.
