Program Description

The Online Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (LSSGB) Certification program accredited by the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) has been designed to cater to learners across three industry areas: ManufacturingHealthcare and Service / Transactional. Participants enrolling in the program will select an industry focus to learn about sector-specific tools, case studies and applications of lean and six sigma.


Industry Focus Areas


Program Topics

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program is a combination of online coursework and an applied project, covering the following topics:

  • Choosing and managing Lean Six Sigma projects. 
  • Process and Value Stream Mapping (VSM), and process flow optimization. 
  • Choosing metrics, establishing a measurement system, and collecting data. 
  • Quantifying the performance gap between current and future state process analysis.
  • Identify decision-making data in processes through the application of data analysis tools.
  • Normal distribution, process capability analysis, and measurement systems analysis
  • Statistics for Six Sigma including relationships between variables, correlation, and regression analysis. 
  • Basic Design of Experiments and Design for Six Sigma.
  • Lean essentials and the removal of waste from a process. 
  • Implementation of Lean Six Sigma tools to close performance gaps, reduce process variation, and center performance on a target value.
  • Application of basic statistical process control methods to monitor performance.

Earning a Certificate

Participants are required to complete ten (10) quizzes and one final exam by the course instruction end date. There is one quiz for each topic week within this program. Each quiz contains multiple choice and true/false questions. A combined average of 70% for the quizzes and a score of 70% or higher on the final exam is required to pass the course. 

Participants are also required to submit a three to six-page Green Belt project report to their course facilitator within 60 days after completing the instruction and quizzes. The project should demonstrate that the participant is able to apply the DMAIC methodology to improve a process in the workplace.
