Six Sigma Green Belt Tutorial


$250 USD each


Monday – February 26, 2024


1:00 PM – 4:30 PM PT



Our work lives are filled with processes for accomplishing our business, scientific, and engineering endeavors. When processes work efficiently, we accomplish much, but when they work poorly, our work can be stifled. Six Sigma methodology provides tools for improving processes. This tutorial will use a ground operations scenario to teach Six Sigma tools.

An overview of the Green Belt Six Sigma Coursework will be given to attendees. Learn how to implement six sigma DMAIC processes to improve how to collect and analyze data. DMAIC stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. Learn how to identify and apply Six Sigma tools to make groundbreaking improvements that could support enhancing your company’s bottom-line results. This tutorial will provide attendees with a toolbox of techniques that can be utilized to improve operations for the enterprise and for programs. These techniques can equally be applied to enterprise processes, and ground systems hardware and software systems. In addition to learning the tools, attendees can choose to conduct their own process improvement project after GSAW and become an Aerospace Six Sigma Green Belt.
