Root Cause Analysis

In this module, Dr. Bill Bailey will cover root cause analysis, which includes the 7-step model, counter measure, and "single-minute exchange of die" (SMED). This module also begins with a Yellow Belt Refresher Area, since some learners may have entered this course without having taken the previous belt material. This refresher area does not serve as a "replacement" for taking the material. It is only a "patch" for those who already have some knowledge of six sigma, but find the yellow belt specialization to be too introductory for their current situation. If you find yourself struggling with the green belt material in this course, it is highly recommended that you travel through the yellow belt specialization before attempting the green belt content....

Lean Tools

In this module, Dr. Bill Bailey will cover a more advance use of lean tools, including a look at the lean philosophy, lean goals, and lean systems. You will also be exposed to three important case studies.

About the Six Sigma Green Belt Specialization

This specialization is for you if you are looking to learn more about the more advanced components of Six Sigma and Lean. Six Sigma skills are widely sought by employers both nationally and internationally. These skills have been proven to help improve business processes, performance, and quality assurance. In this specialization, you will learn proven principles and tools specific to six sigma and lean. This is a sequential, linear designed specialization that covers a more advanced level of content (at the "green belt" level) of Six Sigma and Lean. Yellow Belt knowledge is needed before advancing to Green Belt (which is the second specialization offered here on Coursera by the USG). Green Belt knowledge is needed before moving to a Black Belt. The proper sequence of this specialization is: Course #1 - Six Sigma and the Organization (Advanced) Course #2 - Six Sigma Advanced Define and Measure Phase Course #3 - Six Sigma Advanced Analyze Phase Course #4 - Six Sigma Advanced Improve and Control Phase At the end of Course #4 (Six Sigma Advanced Improve and Control Phase), there is a peer-reviewed, capstone project. Successful completion of this project is necessary for full completion of this specialization. It should be noted that completing either the Yellow Belt or Green Belt Specializations does not give the learner "professional accreditation" in Six Sigma, but should assist in better preparation for such professional accreditation testing....
