We introduced the Six Sigma Primer in early September 2007. The feedback from the students has been extremely positive with high scores on the questionnaires. They appreciated the in-depth treatment and the inclusion of many real-life case studies.
Several students wanted more material on the Design for Six Sigma (DFSS). As a result we have rewritten that section to include several additional topics, including a discussion of the Taguchi Loss Function and the Taguchi Approach to the Design of Experiments.
We also added questions to the end of each section to supplement those already in the material, about fifty additional questions in all.
While we were working on the course we took the opportunity to make improvements throughout and 'beef up' the 'Improve' and 'Control' sections of the DMAIC sequence and the section on 'Lean Six Sigma'.
