Applying Statistics for Lean Six Sigma builds measurement and analytical skills that enable more refined and sophisticated use of data. These newly acquired skills and techniques  then become the "power tools" which all Lean Six Sigma Practitioners apply when charts, graphs and "descriptive" data methods fall short.    Just as important as how to apply these analytical methods, this workshop emphasizes when and why statistical tools should be applied to add value to the organisation.

Underpinning Knowledge
1. Principles of Basic Statistics
2. Method of Data Collection and Measurement of Baseline Performance
3. Application of hypothesis tools for different type of data analysis
4. Procedure for performing Design of Experiment
5. Application of Statistical Process Control

Pre-requisites: Participants should be comfortable with mathematical calculations and basic use of spreadsheet software. Each participant should come with a Windows OS & DVD drive laptop computer pre-installed with a designated statistical analysis software package for use during in-class exercises. The link to download the software will be given one week before the workshop commences.
