Purdue to offer evening Six Sigma training in Fort Wayne

August 8, 2012  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University's Manufacturing Extension Partnership Center will offer evening sessions of its Six Sigma training programs in Fort Wayne this fall.

The classes are in response to numerous requests for evening sessions.

Six Sigma is a customer-focused waste and variation reduction program. It combines a detailed roadmap with powerful statistical tools to attack and resolve critical business issues. Successful Six Sigma projects produce measurable results and help a company achieve process optimization and continuous improvement.

With Six Sigma training, employees learn to make decisions based on data. They are trained to look at the business from a customer's perspective. And the training can lead to a culture change in how employees approach their jobs.

Two evening courses, Green Belt and Black Belt, will be offered starting Sept. 17. Classes will be held on the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne campus.

Cost is $2,000 for Green Belt and $3,000 for Black Belt.

Online registration and more information, including additional Six Sigma workshop dates, are available at http://www.mep.purdue.edu/events under Six Sigma.
