About the course Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts and Black Belts.

Data science and six sigma have much in common. Both operate on data-driven analysis techniques, offer structures for framing and solving problems, and follow a project-based approach. But also: six sigma is at least 25 years old … data science takes it to the next level. With new analytics, new forms of data, and new opportunities! 

The last decades have seen the emergence of a totally new brand of analytics from statistical learning, machine learning and AI. While Six Sigma focuses on optimizing business processes and current product lines (“Horizon 1 innovation”), current industry recognizes data and analytics as valuable assets in themselves, and explores data-driven business models and strategies (“Horizon 3 innovation”). 

 

Course: Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts and Black Belts.

Outcome

Block 1 - day 1/2

Course overview of two days

During the course Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts and Black Belts you will learn:

  • Building on your expertise in Six Sigma, you will learn new skills.
  • Understand data science, machine learning and AI, their application in CRISP-DM projects, and how they are applied in smart industry.
  • Work in an analytics environment based on Python, Jupyter notebooks and Anaconda.
  • Practical visualization using Python’s Matplotlib and Seaborn libraries.
  • Machine learning using Python’s SciKit-Learn. Essential predictive algorithms (lasso regression, decision trees and random forests, support-vector machines, neural networks and deep learning) and unsupervised learning (principal components analysis and t-SNE).
  • Apply a practical workflow: feature engineering and data preprocessing, training a model and finetuning hyperparameters using cross validation, model evaluation and implementation in a pipeline.
  • The basics of data engineering, data pipelines and handling SQL and No-SQL data sources.

Practical information.

For whom

The course is aimed at Six Sigma, DfSS and Lean Six Sigma green belts and black belts eager to enrich their expertise with machine learning and data science. 

Certificate

After completing the training, participants receive proof of participation. Although the course is called “Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts & Black Belts”, it is open to anyone reasonably familiar with Six Sigma principles.  

The course contains various engineering examples and covers the CRISP-DM framework. Which is the data science industry standard equivalent of DMAIC. The course also contains examples and exercises in Python, a popular open-source programming language for data science. Prior knowledge with Python is not necessary.
