    Hello Everyone
    Thanks for taking the time to read this post.  I am a college student who just started to take Six Sigma Green Belt classes at Michigan University.  I have passed my project and ready to study for the exam. I am taking this course online and I think I may be in need for some tutoring.  I seem to understand all the tools but the statistical methods I am having a little trouble understanding.  In collge all this seemed simple, but Six Sigma Green Belt has really taken me in depth on process improvement, measurment and business performance.  Does anyone have some tips on how I can obtain an excellent tutor from where?
     
    Thanks for your time/Anything can help.

    When you took the course, weren’t there any other students that had Black Belts from where they were from that you might be able to use?  Someone local would be best…  Maybe even the individual that facilitated the class.
    Just an idea.

    What is Michigan University? I’ve never heard of it. Is it that big school in Ann Arbor? If so, I am somewhat local and would be happy to help you with what you are doing.
    I assume this is an online course from the university – correct?

    Hello Stan. 
    Thank you so much for your response.  I am taking this course online and reside in PA.  I would very much appreciate if you can take the time to answer some questions I have.  My email address is [email protected]  If I could have your e-mail address so I can send you the data that I am have problems understanding, that would be great.  I will pay you for your services.  Thanks for your time-Stan

    I can understand your difficulty. 
    Here is an example of six sigma theory taken from Reigle Stewart, a director of the Six Sigma Institute:
    “1) Declare a random normal model such that NID(100,10). 2) Declare this model to possess an infinite degrees of freedom. 3) Call this distribution the “theoretical model.” “
    In other words, “assume a normal distribution, mean=100, SD=10 “
    Reigle Stewart and Mikel Harry have intentionally set out to hide the facts with verbose and often incomplete descriptions. They have done this for personal financial gain, by supporting a methodology with very poor statistical foundations.
    In order to understand the facts, throw away your six sigma texts and read Shewhart, Deming and Wheeler.

    Hello Peter
    I really appreciate your incentive and understanding.  Why can’t Six Sigma be the same everywhere?  I will take the time to read this theory.  Is the Six Sigma Institute located in Arizona?
    I will look into these texts.  Thanks:)

    Dear Lisa,
    “Why can’t Six Sigma be the same everywhere?”
    There are a number of reasons.  While SS has been a big earner for Motorola and the SS Academy, most quality consultancies have jumped on the bandwagon, each with their own versions.  Many have seen the flaws in SS and even teach SS under a TQM banner, simply because the name “six sigma” is trendy and sells well. 
    Even within the Motorola and the Academy, SS has changed. As Andy U pointed out, it was initially simply a logo that was placed on their existing material.  Even the foundations of SS has changed, as the statistical flaws in the derivations have become public.
    As SS has waned, Lean has become the new flavour of the month.
    The result are a great many varieties of SS, ranging from straight Deming and TQM to all sorts of things.
    I suggest finding a consultancy that gives a straighforward approach that you can easily understand, rather than going to the Academy. 
    A simple test: If a consultancy advocates 3.4 DPMO – go elsewhere.

    Six Sigma is not about statistics theory.

    I don’t understand the question, my rate of $1K per hour is quite reasonable.

    To all forum members:
    I want to apologize for the previous post and all of the other petty comments I make on here.
    I am a pathetic man in need of help. Please forgive me.

    Absolutely. You can say that again
    Theoretical backing of six sigma is non existent !
    It runs on blind faith.
