About the course Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts & Black Belts

Six Sigma represents the first generation of computer-aided analysis techniques, such as regression, design of experiments and control charts. The last decades have seen the emergence of a totally new brand of analytics from statistical learning, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Where Six Sigma uses powerful techniques to get the most out of small datasets (𝑁=20 to N=100), utilizing the big streams of data is enabled by the modern IT infrastructures and the IoT, cheap storage and computing capacity. This leads to new analysis methods where data could also be images or audio.

While Six Sigma focuses on optimizing business processes and current product lines (“Horizon 1 innovation”), the current industry recognizes data and analytics as valuable assets and therefore explores data-driven business models and strategies (“Horizon 3 innovation”).

Subjects of the course Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts & Black Belts

The following topics will be discussed during the Data Science for Six Sigma Green Belts & Black Belts course:

  • Continue the expertise in Six Sigma

Jerry de Groot
Specialized in medical device technology after studying applied physics, Jerry learned statistics and data science through academic research in the Amsterdam Medical Center. 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.

Dorien Lutgendorf
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) and/or in live sessions, depending on the COVID-19 situation at the time. The trainers prefer live sessions when possible.

Group size

Maximum group size: 10 participants
