    Does anyone have a sample Black Belt certification test that I could review or know where I could find one? 
    I am “certified” in-house, but never had to take a test.  I know most programs make you pass a test.

    Your test should be bottom line results from a real, tangible project!
    ARRRRRGH!

    Tuanman,
    I agree with Heebeegeebee, but to answer your question, follow the link below.

    Tuanman:
    Don’t waste your time with this foolishness. So many folks on this forum are way to caught up in “getting certified” by some outside organization. Why in the world would you want to do this?
    Work on your projects – bring results to your company. It brings great satisfaction.

    I would also recommend Quality of America Sample.  You can also purchase a dsik with over 1000 questions from Quality Council of Indiana.  I think ASQ also has a practice exam/questions.
    I think it is a good idea to get outside certification as well.  Although bottom line results are very important, those savings are often a result of low hanging fruit and the BB that completed the project is essentially incompetent when it comes to knowledge of the Six Sigma process as well as tools available.
    I was certified through my company (Fortune 500 company) as well as obtained certification through ASQ.  For those interested in bottom line results…I was the Six Sigma savings leader with FY 2003 savings of approximately $5 million.

    does anyone have a final report they could send me.  I’m interested in seeing how other Black Belts do theirs and what is required.
    My training was not what I thought and I took the quality america test and didn’t do well.  I’m learning alot from just reading of many books on the subject.
    What kinds of projects got you to 5 million, DColvin.

    The qualityamerica test has an error in one of the questions and contains a number of supposed questions  that are vague and are more the stuff of debate than understanding of the Six Sigma tools.  BTW, the question that is in error is on saturated designs where the correct answer states that there are no degrees of freedom to estimate interactions.  The answer is wrong. In a saturated design interactions are often estimable, however there are no degrees of freedom remaining to estimate experimental error — this is not a minor mistake it is a critical error.

    Hi Tuanman,
    I’m not sure exactly what you mean by a final report.  Are you talking about a summary of the projects, or certification requirements, etc.?
    In response to your other question, I achieved large dollar savings primarily with inventory related projects.  We are a large company 75,000+ employees, with more than 30,000 in this (Aerospace) division.
    The majority of these savings came from the reduction of inventory.  This included: vendor relations, inventory reduction, improved MRP systems, etc.

    Savings???

    DColvin,
    I know who you are. Don’t you just install interiors in aircraft? I am familiar with the SS program at the organization that you are in and I question your alleged savings.

    Heebeejeebee:
    I am not sure if you are serious or not, but if you are then you definitely DON’T know who I am.  I come from a ‘white collar’ background and have never worked on aircraft.  Why would you question the legitimacy of the savings?
    Are you concerned it diminishes your own savings?  I would be more than happy to compare our backgrounds as well as project legitimacy.
    If you are familiar with my company, you will know that there is absolutely no incentive for inflated savings.  There is no bonus or recogniton plan in place….

    Um,
    D Colvin,
    I didn’t question your savings.   It was someone else.   I’m not “D”, but a good friend of his.   I did my time at BOM too.  
    I sure hope Bom rebounds, because our town needs the infusion of capital and jobs.
    Take Care,
    Heebee

    Does anyone have to submit a report on your project that summarizes the DMAIC steps with data, graphs, tools used, etc for sign-off when a project is complete in order to capture the savings in the books?
    I’m interested in seeing someone’s so I can compare it to mine.
    I would like to gain knowledge from a properly and effectively implemented Six Sigma program used elsewhere.

    I sense a bit of bitterness.  I would imagine that stems from some sense of insecurity.  This is usually the result of some sort of inadequacy for which you are trying to compensate.  (possibly little personal success in Six Sigma?)  This is given greater credence from the fact that you hide behind names that give no hint of who you truly are?
    I noticed the sprinkling of Latin in your posting.  We could have this discussion in Spanish or Portuguese instead of English (if you’d like).  In response to your question of whether the savings were mine or part of a larger Six Sigma group…they were mine.  The larger group obtained savings of just over 8 million (including my savings).
    If you are truly interested in learning more about these savings, I would be more than happy to e-mail details to you.  Maybe you can leverage the project(s) and help to satisfy that sense of inadequacy.  If I am off the mark perhaps you can enlighten us with a few accomplishments of your own…

    John,
    Thanks for your offer. Can you post them here (to the forum message)? I’d like to see them but am weary of posting my email address. Plus, I think that others would be interested also and posting it will prevent a lot of people from posting their email addresses also (spam, you know!).
    Thanks so much!Cheryl
