Six Sigma Training


The MRC DifferenceView Training Schedule

MRC’s Six Sigma/Lean6 courses:

  • Bridge the gap between instruction and implementation – While online courses seek only to educate, MRC goes beyond training to assist in actual project implementation.
  • Drive real change – Case studies don’t cut it here. You select a Six Sigma project that will create genuine organizational change. Successful completion means you are improving product quality, enhancing customer service, and saving your company money.
  • Rely on project mentoring – MRC Six Sigma/Lean6 instructors go above and beyond to ensure your success. The course price includes four private, onsite project mentoring meetings with our Master Black Belt to gurantee ROI on your first project.

Green Belt Certification

Program Overview and Objectives
The MRC Six Sigma Green Belt is designed for individuals with little or no experience with Six Sigma methodologies, but it is no less impactful.  The course is considered a “Dark Green” belt, emphasizing statistical tools to improve performance and make goals “stick.”  Objectives include:

  • Demonstrating the Design Measure Analyze Improve Control (DMAIC) methodology
  • Documenting progress and results
  • Selecting and applying tools
  • Collecting and analyzing data

Program Description
MRC’s Six Sigma Green Belt course consists of classroom and onsite mentoring sessions. Participants gain a comprehensive understanding of Six Sigma’s concepts, history, roles, implementation, and Green Belt statistical tools.  Core parts of Six Sigma Green Belt Training are:

  • Process flow charting
  • Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FEMEA)
  • Distributions and Statistical Processes
  • Control charts
  • Inferential statistics
  • Process capability
  • Correlation and regression
  • Measurement systems analysis (Gauge R&R)
  • Analysis of variance (ANOVA)
  • Goodness of fit testing

MRC’s Six Sigma Green Belts are able to create charts, process maps, and control plans to describe Six Sigma roles within an organization.  They also learn to define Six Sigma projects and use Minitab® to run statistical tests for process improvement.  Green Belt projects typically deliver $25,000~$50,000 in process improvement-driven cost savings.

Black Belt Certification

Program Overview and Objectives
MRC’s Six Sigma Black Belt course consist of classroom and onsite mentoring sessions. The training initially runs simultaneously with our Green Belt class and focuses on Green Belt topics.  Next we build on that foundation and expand to Black Belt material. This improves synergy within organizations by enabling individuals from the same company to attend the training together even though their experience may differ.

In addition to the Green Belt topics, the training focuses on:

  • Advanced regression and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
  • Advanced capability
  • Designs of Experiment (DoE)
  • Non-parametric distribution(s)
  • Logistic regression

Program Description

  • Process flow charting
  • Inferential statistics
  • Distributions and Statistical Processes Control charts
  • Correlation and regression
  • Multiple regression
  • Process capability
  • Goodness of fit testing
  • Measurement systems analysis (Gauge R&R)
  • Factorial Design
  • Variability reduction using Designs of Experiment (DoE)
  • Failure Mode Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMEA)

MRC’s Six Sigma Black Belts are able to explain multiple regression, perform factorial experiments, determine size calculations needed for experiments, and describe the different types of process optimization. Black Belt projects typically deliver $50,000~$100,000 in process improvement-driven cost savings.

Who Should Attend These courses are for senior-level decision makers, general managers, supervisors, group leaders, quality managers—individuals from any discipline that wants to apply the Six Sigma methodology to eliminate waste, reduce inventory, improve processes, increase throughput, or improve bottom-line financial results.
