December 3, 2020
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Please register below, and an email will be sent to you one week before the event with a link to join the Zoom webinar.
This webinar is targeted at people beginning their Lean Six Sigma journey and those who simply want to refresh their Minitab analysis skills. During this session you will experience a “hands-on” application of the foundational statistics driving the Lean Six Sigma programs. It is also a refresher for Lean Six Sigma practitioners.
Lean Six Sigma was a scientific problem-solving methodology created by Motorola to combat low cost imported computer chips with high quality products in the 1980’s. This methodology has been embraced by companies and industries ranging from automotive to service and healthcare providers.
The first step in the Lean Six Sigma journey is to measure and understand your data. In order to understand your data, we will review some basic statistics including the mean, standard deviation and check if the data follows the normal or bell-shaped distribution. Next, we will create various graphs, including dotplots, boxplots, time series and control chart, providing us with a visual picture of the data while starting our data demographics journey.
We will use Minitab statistical software to review key statistical process measures and also create graphs to provide a visual picture of the data.
If you are new to Minitab and Six Sigma you will see the world’s leading Six Sigma statistical software applied to a number of “real world” project datasets.
Target Audience: Anyone interested in streamlining processes, improving business performance and supercharging your career. This session is suitable for Quality System Managers, Supervisors, Operations Managers, Finance and Commercial Managers, and professionals who want to apply the methodologies and quality control process within an organization.
Cost: No cost, complimentary – This event is made possible thanks to funding assistance through the MEP National Emergency Assistance Program.
