Overview/Description
Six Sigma bases its analysis and findings on the facts and figures at hand. Statistical studies and probability are the key tools that Six Sigma teams use to measure and analyze issues that are identified in the early stages of Six Sigma projects. This course explores basic statistical concepts that apply to Six Sigma. It distinguishes between enumerative and analytical statistics and population and sample characteristics, and describes the Central Limit Theorem. It also examines basic probability concepts and looks at dependent, independent, and mutually exclusive events, and multiplication and addition rules. This course is aligned to the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Green Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation.

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
