In a Six Sigma DMAIC project, once you've measured your current processes, analyzed the gaps and causes of problems, and improved processes to the desired level, you need to monitor and control them over an extended period of time. The process may show variation, and control charts are used to determine if the variation is natural to the process or if there is another reason for the discrepancy. Control charts can also be used in other stages of Six Sigma – to examine how a process is performing over time and also to identify and analyze any special cause variations. Depending on the type of data, different types of control charts can be used. They are broadly organized into two categories: charts for variable data, and charts for attribute data. As the journey continues, findings from the control charts may be used as the beginning point for a new improvement initiative.This course deals primarily with basic control chart concepts and how they are created and analyzed in Six Sigma. It teaches methods of creating and analyzing key variable and attribute control charts. The course also identifies the control charts to use in specific situations and the various steps in the standard control charting process. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Green Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation.
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
