    Doesn’t agree with what?
    I questioned several of your statements with respect to what a six sigma process looks like. Which one does your customer have an opinion about?

    Brandon,
    I agree that it’s great that Bill tried to answer the actual question, but he demonstrated he does not even understand the basic premise of 6 sigma (all the defects vs inspection points).

    Implementing Six sigma by Breyfogle is a good reference book.
    Others can give light on this topic.

    I’m a newly certified BB, and I use the forum to test my knowledge and understanding. While I was in training, I would read the questions, try to figure out the answers, and then compare my answers with the answers posted in the forums, by the guys (and gals) that I consider to be very knowledgeable.  Sometimes, I felt really confident and would try to answer… sometimes I was right on, other times, I needed to think my answer through a little more… before posting…

    Stan –
    My mistake was looking at the wrong example, and typing before I comprehended what I was looking at…. not a mistake of my training…..
    I’m sorry you’re so cynical, glad you’re not on my team.

    My bad!  Not that I didn’t know that, but because I gave the wrong percent; I was looking at my notes… at an example that had both P values and Sigma levels… 
    How about this… the P value is the percent that you could be wrong, if you reject your hypothesis…  Bob, Mary and Jane all paint the same number of houses, different thickness, different timelines… company wants to see if Mary is better than the rest….  they might all be bad (none of them performing at a Six Sigma level) you run ANOVA and determine that statistically, they all perform the same….  you accept the hypothesis that all three paint the same (even though you thought Mary was better)
    or…..
    “If the P is love… the Ho must go!”
    But….. it is totally not fair for you to judge my training on simple mistake….

    Hi,
    I am but a wee Green Belt… but my understanding is that the P value and the 6 sigma level are both in the standard deviation…  Six Sigma is 99.7% (supposedly the best) and the P value is at 95% – close enough to the 6 sigma value , to decide that the hypothesis cannot be rejected, because it is statistically normal.  As the P value strays from the 6 Sigma level… the hypothesis starts to fall apart… and must be rejected.
    Is that what you meant?

    I am going through training, through Blackbelt.  One week a month, for four months, with 8 months to complete a project, where the DMAIC was actually implemented.  I’ve heard of people taking 3 day GreenBelt courses, but I don’t know how they did it, or what they could have possibly learned….  Black Belt starts tomorrow.
    You get a Training Certificate for completing the training, but you are certified only after completing a project.  You can further your training, by getting certified through ASQ, but you have to pass the exam.
    I don’t think most companies require you to complete more than one project to receive your certification, although to apply for the ASQ certification, you must have either completed 2 projects, or worked in the field for over 5 years, and completed one project. ( think!)

    Try more datapoints?  I am working on a project, and the samples I have taken don’t have enough variance to show where it’s going wrong… so I made my sample size a lot larger, now I can see the trends more clearly.
    But I’m only a wee Green Belt.  :-)
