Some of today's most respected companies—including GE, Motorola, Allied Signal, and Sun Microsystems—have used Lean Six Sigma to improve their organizations. Join the ranks of these successful corporations and let Lean Six Sigma work for you.
Lean Six Sigma is a combined process-improvement methodology that accelerates processes, increases efficiency, and reduces or eliminates variation. Competition for the same customers is increasing throughout the corporate world, putting company profits on the line; customer expectations are changing rapidly as the rate of information increases; and costs are escalating. Now more than ever, achieving process excellence is essential.
Our Lean Six Sigma program gives you valuable business tools to achieve process excellence and help your team:
A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (LSSGB) program, offered jointly by Dartmouth's Thayer College of Engineering, the Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) Department at Binghamton University and the Binghamton University IIE Student Chapter is planned for January 2012.
This short course is designed for students that have some coursework background in probability and statistics and/or quality control. In order to be a certified green belt, the student will be expected to pass a take-home examination within one week of the end of the course. A certificate will be provided to those who successfully complete the course, which is nationally recognized.
*Students who do not have current knowledge/education in the probability and statistics and/or quality control may enroll in this course. However, they are also required to attend the prerequisite statistics day of instruction (at an additional cost) on January 10, 2012.
This course is open to all current BU students as well as alumni, non-BU students, and members of industry, non-profits, and government agencies.
