Black Belts are experts in the use of Six Sigma methodology and tools. They lead more complex projects and may also provide training and coaching to others. Black Belts may work on projects in their own areas or anywhere within the organization.
To reach Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. According to the Six Sigma Academy, Black Belts save companies approximately $230,000 per project and can complete four to six projects per year.
Avoid the drudgery of manual calculations and save time with Minitab, a powerful software package for performing statistical analysis - and highly recommended for Six Sigma use. An excellent benefit of The University of Akron's Six Sigma program is a one-year Minitab software license. Minitab software will be distributed prior to the first day of class to Six Sigma students to install on your laptop. If you do not have a laptop, one will be provided for your use in class.
