Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

Monday, September 8, 2014 - 8:30am to Monday, December 8, 2014 - 4:30pm



The RIT CQAS Black Belt training program is a keystone element of the Lean Six Sigma training program and builds upon the lessons learned through the prerequisite Green Belt training program. Each program participant is required to complete a Black Belt project that will continue beyond the training timeframe and directly benefit their corporation. On average, these Black Belt projects return $50,000 or more in value to the program participant’s corporation and provide an immediate return-on-investment that is exponentially larger than the training program’s expense.

The program's key subjects include:

  • Statistical Inference
  • Hypothesis Testing
  • Confidence Intervals
  • Correlation and Multiple Linear Regression
  • Project Leadership, Organization Learning and Presenting Skills
  • Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA)
  • Components of Variance/Multi-Vari Charts
  • Reliability Indices
  • Design of Experiments
  • Two-Level Factorial Design
  • Two-Level Fractional Factorial
  • Response Surface Methods
  • SPC/Control Charts
  • Capability Analysis

The RIT CQAS Black Belt program provides in-depth data analysis tools and processes to fully implement the Lean Six Sigma problem solving process that generates superior data driven solutions, productive yields and dramatically improved bottom-line results.
