Businesses that focus on manufacturing goods generally derive their success from the high-quality products they produce. As someone certified in Six Sigma, you can apply your knowledge of production processes to reduce product defects and save companies thousands or even millions of dollars.
Through the Six Sigma program, you earn certificates to denote your level of expertise, including champion, black belt, green belt, etc. Six Sigma was originally developed by Motorola in the mid 1980s and became popular after its adoption by General Electric in the mid 1990s. The co-creator of Six Sigma, Mikel J. Harry, PhD, is an alumnus of Ball State (BS 1973, MA 1981).
