    Hi,
    I totally agree with that point. An exam provides a feedback to the trainer but only if its conducted within a stipulated time frame.
    An examination on submission of a project or before surely gives all certified Green Belts a double edged reason to feel proud of their accomplishment.
    Best Wishes

    I meant in my previous message about the pattern of procurement. Please see if there is a contract for all procurements. If there are no contracts then insist for contract procurement so that the rates do not fluctuate and if you have a long term contract then you’ll have a cost benefit. Moreover see the payment term and the cash discount/ time discount facility which the vendor is offering. Please compare and then go ahead with the project. The project will mechanically follow once you do a SIPOC and VOC.

    yes you have a lot of scope in material procurement. See the pattern of procurement ie a regular or a stray procurement and then carryout the project in procurement

    Well, I got my BB certification via ASQ. Its relatively free except for the exam fee and the $75 for the primer. So within about $500-700, you can be certified. Of course,…..there are many if’s to this picture.
    I had many years of experience and got my six sigma DMAIC and DFSS GB certications with GE. Once I had the foundation, I used the principles and stat methods for many six sigma projects over many years. 
    When I moved companies, I used my BB level projects from GE and took the ASQ exam. It also helped that my then MBB signed off on my projects submitted to ASQ.
    My point is….if you do your research well, are genuinely interested in the field, know your stuff and practice the skills, you can do it for almost free.
    Again, you have to go through the requirements to decide if it works for you.

    Hi Alex
    I was responsible for some projects with my former employer (GE Healthcare) where six sigma principles were applied routinely in marketing. 
    The tools were used to quantify and publish research (in well established journals) to strengthen marketing claims of product leadership wrt competitor product performance. The customers were responsible for the study. We only helped them design and use six sigma principles as required. Of course, the product in question was a winner.
    For instance, the customer proved that the radiation dose of our equipment was x% lesser than the radiation dose of a competitors all things being equal. (Similar patient populations, standardized procedure, same operator, etc. )
    Such publications presented at national conferences really helped build the credibility of our product over time and provide a sense of market leadership. Also the sales folks were provided access to the publications and training  to be able to talk knowledgeably to future customers.
    I hope this helps!

    Thanks to both of you for your efforts.
    I still feel there is lot of subjectivity in deciding the significance level. In future also if you come across any formula to calculate it, pl. post it in the site.
    By the way, Priya is Female name in India.

    How does LSL and USL hard limits affect the Cp and Cpk values and why?
    If my LSL is zero and my process is best at zero ,USL has no hard limit then how will it affect the CP and Cpk values?
    How do I calculate considering the hard limits?
