Studying Quality Management, Six Sigma - Professional Diploma at the University of Limerick

The diploma will provide education and practical application to a Black Belt level in Six Sigma. The course will enable participating companies gain competitive advantage through the application of Six Sigma principles to drive improvement with measurable results.   A company-based project will form a key element of the programme, ensuring the integration of the various concepts in the participants’ workplace.  This project will need to result in significant cost savings for the organisation.

 

This programme forms part of the MSc in Strategic Quality Management Lean Sigma Systems.  Those who have completed this programme may continue on to the MSc.

 

For Whom

Those who have responsibility for quality or continuous improvement within their organisation including managers, engineers, supervisors and technicians. The programme is suited to a variety of industry sectors both in manufacturing and services, including the public sector.

 

In Company Project:

Programme completion requires a substantial industry based project, reported in the form of management report.  The expectation that the project would realise savings of at least €50,000 for the participant organisation. The project will require the application of the concepts covered in the course.  The output of the project should involve a significant benefit to the company.  The Student, Supervisor and Company will agree the success metric for the project as part of the topic selection process.

Examples of success metrics could include:

• the improvement of a specified performance indicator by an agreed amount.  
• the quantifiable addition of value to process or service which was the focus of the project.
• a cost saving of the order of €30,000 which must be verified by the company, or in the case of a Small to Medium Enterprises, (SMEs, <250 employees), project savings must amount to 0.1% of annual turnover.  

 

An example could be a kanban system that could result in cost savings through inventory reduction to the value of €50,000, or an increase in machine efficiency by 5%, or a reduction process cycle time by 10%.

 

The University of Limerick and several leading Irish companies designed this course to meet the standards of a black belt. While there is no single authority that issues black belts in Lean or Six Sigma the industry group and university carried out extensive research in designing the course to ensure that the course met the general standards that are expected of a black belt holder.

 

Black Belt projects are expected to save in the region of €50,000 for their organisation. A Black Belt holder is expected to be competent in the tools and techniques to organise and implement a project at this level.

 

Successful participants will receive a letter from the University of Limerick stating that their capability is at black belt level.

 

Delivery:

Delivery is a hybrid of traditional distance education and online learning together with a number of on-campus tutorials (approx. 3 Saturdays per semester). In addition, there are on-line discussions moderated by a subject matter expert on elements of each module to reinforce the learning and maximise the benefit of the programme for participants.

 

Tutorials are held at the University of Limerick campus.
