About the Six Sigma User Group

The Six Sigma User Group is an interactive meeting and is meant for people that have followed a Six Sigma Course but who have difficulties with the application within their projects. Our Master Black Belt, Joost van der Heijden, and Statistical Engineering Expert, Ko Dousma, help you find a solution for your Six Sigma related problems. The User Group is based on the practical matters raised by the participants themselves. In addition, every User Group discusses a particular Six Sigma topic. All information/ data discussed in this Six Sigma User Group is confidential.

Subjects of the Six Sigma User Group

The agenda items are input from the participants themselves. In addition, every Six Sigma User Group will focus on a specific part within the Six Sigma methodology, such as:

  • Compare GR&R with Iso-plot
  • Compliance with specification under measurement uncertainty
  • Acceptance sampling for attributes
  • De particularities of Gauge R&R

Results of the Six Sigma User Group

During the user group meeting you will learn:

  • Find a new perspective on Six Sigma issues in your own project, through the guidance of our professionals;
  • Update your knowledge in the area of Six Sigma and be up to date with the most modern solutions used in the sector;
  • Build networking with Six Sigma professionals who work in different areas of the most diverse companies and, thus, see all possible applications of the methodology.

For whom

The Six Sigma User Group is aimed at people who have followed a Six Sigma course but still have difficulties putting the theory into practise. The training is suitable for professionals with academic skills or Bachelor’s level, or the same level of knowledge gained by experience.
