He is keen in figuring out how things work (or don’t), loves prototyping and has a natural ability to explain complex abstractions in plain language.
With mechanical engineering as technical background, Dories has extensive experience in modeling, testing, and reliability engineering in various projects. She is analytical, pragmatic and eager to learn. She always likes to think along with interesting topics. Experienced training in Lean Yellow belt, FMEA and Reliability Engineering.
Certificate / diploma
After completing the full 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.
Method of teaching
This training will be available as Live Online Interactive Training (LOIT).
Minimum 8 participants, maximum 12 participants.
