The Master Black Belt training and certification program is a detailed and informative treatment of the issues involved in developing, deploying and sustaining successful DFSS and Lean Six Sigma programs. Taught by SigmaPro, their extensive experience in DFSS and Lean Six Sigma deployment and training provides a singularly unique perspective that will assist service and industrial Master Black Belts in deciding how, where, when, and why DFSS and Lean Six Sigma should be implemented. Participants will discuss a deployment plan based on strategic product or service launch criteria and the desired financial performance, as well as, how to allocate resources and manage the effort. Participants will also gain an in-depth knowledge of the most popular DFSS strategy -- Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Validate (DMADV), as well as, the tried and true, Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) methodology for process improvement. The technical tools to support the DMADV and DMAIC strategies will be covered in detail. To facilitate learning and increase knowledge retention, this training is delivered in two 5-day training blocks, which are typically separated by one month.
