    I am a student pursuing my first year MBA in one of the reputed universities in the U.S. We are planning to have a elective on ‘Design and Process improvement’ focusing on Six Sigma and other quality tools. And we need to structure this course to meet Industry requirements. We are therefore looking at companies who would be willing to have graduate students be part of their Six-Sigma projects so that we have the experience of working on live projects.
    Are there any companies out there who would be interested in working with the university?  Or are there any other suggestions?

    hi nirmal
    i’m also doing my MBA and am currently working in a multnational bank on SIx sigma.there are in fact many companies tht are now waking up to this buzz called 6 sigma. e.g all the BAnks like ICICI , ABN AMRO, etc.to getto them what u have to do is talk to the HR person whether some such proj is on ….u can use ur college resources 4 this.this is what i did atleast.

    Nirmal,
    It is a good idea to have six sigma at the graduate level.I know some universities in Japan which have made six sigma as a part of their curriculum.But mind it six sigma without proper knowledge will end up in disappointment both to the individual and the company.I think before going for a live project a thorough knowledge of six sigma must be acquinted.

    Having studied both for a BEng and MSc in Manufacturing and Systems Engineering the BB curriculum made things clear on how the tools that have been in existence for some time should be applied. I would agree that the only true way of gaining the benefits of BB training would be through hands on project environment, but the use of teaching DMAIC would undoubtedly be of benefit to graduates

    Nitin,
    I understand your concern. I had worked with GE for around 2 yrs now and so I have a very minimal knowledge of six-sigma. But I was looking at securing projects for the entire class (say 10-15 students) so that we all gain that experience. And yes before we embark on the projects do have six-sigma training and study material planned to get us going.
    Thanks and let me know if you come up with something more.

    The industry standard is the Honeywell six sigma plus program.
     
    GE has so many itterrations of six sigma that no one is sure what it is.  Look for a Honeywell homepage or the ASQ body of knowledge.

    Nirmal,
    I had also taken my BB training from GE-PS,the training was well designed with hands on experience on various tools such as gage R&R, DOE,etc.For selecting projects at initial level,it should be taken in mind that the projects doesn’t involve use of complex tools,to get the initial confidence to the candidates.
