In the field of quality management, there are a large number of
problem-solving approaches. The most famous approach, Six Sigma,
focuses on fact and statistics-based continuous improvement of
products, processes and even services.
The introduction of Six Sigma has revolutionized the use and scope of quality systems in manufacturing in today's corporate landscape.
A definition of Six Sigma cannot be given in just a few words, despite its clear, statistical origin, because the method encompasses problem solving on the one hand and focuses on optimization and cultural change in the company on the other. Six Sigma achieves this goal through the uncompromising use of sophisticated statistical and mathematical tools and a well-defined methodology that quickly produces significant results.

After completing the module, students will have basic knowledge of the "Six Sigma" methodology as well as alternative problem-solving techniques. By participating in the corresponding Practical Classes, students have the opportunity to transform their knowledge into practical skills. Due to the group structure in the Practical Class, the students are able to further develop their social, system and methodological competence. The application of practical methods, materials, tools and instruments within scenarios solidify the learned knowledge and allow the students to participate in an optimization project.
The module is divided into weekly lectures and three practical classes.
