Find Errors, Make Processes Measurable and Optimise them

Cost reduction through customer-oriented process optimisation using statistical methods

Against the background of increasing globalisation and the associated steady growth in international competition, more and more companies are turning to Six Sigma as a process optimisation method.

Six Sigma is commonly referred to as a "breakthrough strategy". The reasons are, on the one hand, that customer orientation is at the centre and, on the other hand, that it is not superficially about achieving countless small improvements. With Six Sigma, significant optimization and error reduction lead to long-term, sustainable results.

As a certified Six Sigma Yellow Belt, you are able to work independently on manageable improvement projects and lead them successfully. This applies not only to technical processes, but also to all cross-divisional processes in companies (e.g. administration, logistics).
