    Hello folks,
     

    I am raj. Basically a technical guy moved to Quality area due to my company’s urge!
     
    Could anyone of you plz tell me…whether i should be sound in mathematics to get into six sigma ocean!
     
    Are just some basics of statistics will do?
     
    What are all the prerequisite i should be aware of before moulding myself as sixsigma professional?
     
     

    Thanks & Regards,
    karthik.

    In a normal distribution with mean2.0 and standard deviation 0.05, what is the area under the curve between 1.99 and 2.10 standard deviation units ? Show the calculations.

    What sort of idiot would ever want to know ?
    This has nothing to do with quality.

    raj,
    Do not be put off by egocentric posts like the first one you recieved. A complete waste of time and hopefully Phil’s post has him being a little introspective.
    We get people with very basic math skills and zer computer skills all the way to PhD’s. The question is always how hard are you willng to work? As long as you put in the time you can make it through.
    If you are concerned about being a good belt then you will find very quickly that the issue isn’t stats it is about people and change.
    Good luck

    Sanjeev,
    What kind of an answer is that? Even some of the most abrasive responses I have seen on here are rarely that self serving.

    Many people trained in six sigma are too lazy to understand their process and by hoping Minitab will solve all problems for them.Mathematics is not an issue at all, is your willingness to dirty your hands and learn the process in the gemba.

    Orang_Utan,
    You are mistaken. The first three stages of Six Sigma are to understand what you want, where you are, and what your process is now, and what it might be.
    Do you have to get your hands dirty? Certainly! You have to immerse yourself in the process, but let the data you find there show you the way. Then do what it tells you to make ? better.
    I am not sure what the next wave will be called, but for now it is called Six Sigma.

    Raj…
    Welcome to the madness…..!!
    I will admit, I am no mathematician, let alone a statistician (may not even be a good speller…not sure if I spelled those right)….however, I do know enough to be dangerous and effective when implementing inferential stats.  Quick answer is yes….you need to be sound in math….and stats.  However, is not all about the stats….you need to also know process map analysis, DMAIC, etc….(if you are doing the Six Sigma thing..).

    I hope you did work as a BB and also experince in providing trainng to new BB/GB.I am not mistaken, a ton of BB/GBs do not want to understand their process and just collecting data blindly. Instead of spend 80% time on the gemba to observe, study process and collect reliable and needed data, majority of BBs are plain lazy and assigning someone to collect data for them. What they do is to spend 80% of their time in so-called analyze data with Minitab and produce very nice reports.

    Hi Raj,
    Six Sigma is not mathematics or statistics alone, it maybe highly necessary, however leadership skill, openness to change, experience and visibility of what is the VALUE must be on board as well. Persuasive ability,  integrity, subject matter expert and history of high impact results suits the persons to engage in a six sigma environment.
