Statistics and Graphical Presentation in Six Sigma

Overview/Description Target Audience Prerequisites Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
Basic graphs and tables can be used to summarize and assess performance-related data in a meaningful way. Six Sigma practitioners use descriptive statistics to tabulate and graphically represent sample data through a number of informative charts and diagrams. Using analytical statistics, inferences are made about the larger population based on their sample data. These tools allow the organization to view its performance graphically and draw valid conclusions about its processes and products. This course provides basic statistical tools for describing, presenting, and analyzing data. It explores the process of preparing and presenting sample data using graphical methods and then making valid inferences about the population represented by the sample. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward their certification and to become productive members on their Six Sigma project teams.

Target Audience
Candidates seeking Six Sigma Green Belt certification; also 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
