In partnership with the TUM School of Management, the TUM Executive Education Center is offering the TUM Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification upon the successful completion of the edX Professional Certificate
Six Sigma and Lean: Quantitative Tools for Quality and Productivity
This Professional Certificate is endorsed by Infineon Technologies and covers the fundamentals of the Six Sigma methodology and Lean Production for quality and productivity improvement, following the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) process improvement cycle and examining how the principles of Lean production improve quality and productivity and enable organizational transformation. The material is based on the American Society for Quality Body of Knowledge up to a Green Belt Level. The course is designed as preparation for taking a Green Belt exam.
The edX Professional Certificate consists of three courses:
Registration Deadline Six weeks after start of course
PaymentDuring application on the platform for a verified certificate
Certificate Technical University of Munich Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification
DegreeLean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification
RequirementsBasic math skills.
Relevant hardware and software, stable access to internet.
Additional requirementsContinuous participation of all three MOOC courses with a passing grade and the required payment for the edX Verified Certificate of 88 USD for each course.
Target groupProfessionals and executives of quality management from production and service companies.
Employees from all business areas and levels actively involved in quality systems and quality improvement.
Individuals preparing for a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam.
DurationThree consecutive edX courses:
Six Sigma: Define and Measure
Six Sigma: Analyze, Improve, Control
Each course has a duration of 8 weeks.

Tuition feeIn order to receive the TUM Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification, it is mandatory that the participant pass and achieve a Verified Certificate in all three courses (Six Sigma: Define and Measure, Six Sigma: Analyze, Improve, Control, Lean Production): Cost = 3 x 88USD = 264 USD.
The Six-Sigma Concept:
DEFINE: Charter Review – Definition of the product, its demands, attributes and its problems
MEASURE: Process Mapping, C&E Review, identification of negative influences, Data Collection Plan & Hypothesis Building
ANALYZE: Graphical Analyses, Process Capability, Hypothesis testing (t-test, F-test, ANOVA, Correlation and Regression), Root Cause Analysis
CONTROL: Control Charts: I/MR, X-bar/S, p-Chart, Process Management Plan
Course 1: Define and Measure
In the first course, Six Sigma: Define and Measure, we discuss what “Quality” means and introduce the five steps of the DMAIC process improvement flow used in Six-Sigma: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control.
Learn how to identify the Voice of the Customer and define our improvement project goal, setting targets for process yield and evaluating the cost benefits. We map our process flow and introduce the necessary statistical techniques to establish the baseline performance of our process and the process capability.
Understand how to use statistical sampling for the subsequent data collection and cover the basics of a Measurement System Analysis. In this first course, we also review the descriptive statistical techniques to present our data clearly to the project teams.
Course 2: Six Sigma: Analyse, Improve, Control
In the second course, Six Sigma: Analyse, Improve, Control, we analyse our collected data using inferential and review techniques for root cause analysis.
Perform correlation and regression analyses in order to confirm the root cause and understand how to improve our process and plan designed experiments. We implement statistical process using control charts and how to use quality management tools for reducing risk and managing process deviations.
Course 3: Lean Production
In the third course, Lean Production, we look at the fundamental relationship between inventory, cycle time and low rate and analyse our process capacity. Calculate the impact of defects and rework on our process capacity. From a managerial perspective, the main tenets of the Toyota Production System are covered, reviewing the complementing aspects of Just-in-Time manufacturing and Quality Management, and discussing the key organisational requirements for lean production, including key metrics for both operational and financial performance.
