A derivative contract, or derivative for short, is a bilateral contract that derives its value from an underlying security - a stock, bond, or a commodity - and is used for managing risks associated with these securities. Derivatives have seen a phenomenal growth over the past few decades. Traditionally, they are used for protecting banks, financial institutions, and traders from adverse movements in the price of financial instruments and commodities. In other words, derivatives are generally used for hedging purposes. However, more recently they have also been used by sophisticated investors to speculate on price movements of reference assets or to employ strategies for riskless profit, called arbitrage. In this course we examine some generally used categories of derivatives - futures, forwards, swaps, and options, and their applications. We examine pricing, margin requirements, mark-to-market, and cash flow calculations along with important considerations and characteristics of these products.

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is an innovative approach for the design or redesign of a process, product, or service from the ground up. It follows a 'pay me now or pay me later' adage by spending effort and time on creating a Six Sigma level process or product design up front, avoiding efforts to fix them later. Tools such as Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) are extensively used to achieve DFSS goals. FMEA helps identify possible failures and their potential impact on a design, manufacturing assembly process, or product or service and prioritize actions to address them. This course will examine how Six Sigma combines DFSS and tools such as FMEA to reach its organizational goals. It introduces key DFSS and FMEA methodologies and concepts, distinguishes DFSS methodologies from Six Sigma DMAIC, and explains how to prioritize process and design risks using FMEA. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward their certifications and becoming productive members of their Six Sigma project teams.

In the Improve stage of Six Sigma DMAIC, Six Sigma teams design and conduct experiments to investigate the relationships between input variables and response variables. By controlling and changing the input variables and observing the effects on the response variables, a Six Sigma team gains a deep understanding of their relationships. After determining what and how much needs to be changed to gain the desired improvement, teams generate solution ideas. This course surveys the concepts that are fundamental to the Design of Experiments methodology, including the basic elements of experiments: variables, factors and levels, responses, treatments, errors, repetition, blocks, randomization, effects, and replication. It also introduces and analyzes main effects, interaction effects, and their plots. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward their certification and to become productive members on their Six Sigma project teams.

Six Sigma teams design and conduct experiments to investigate the relationships between input variables and response variables. By controlling and changing the input variables and observing the effects on the response variables, a Six Sigma team gains a deep understanding of these relationships. After determining what and how much needs to be changed to meet the desired improvement, teams generate solution ideas based on the best combination of input variables' settings to optimize the response, and then the ideas are tested, implemented, and validated. Later in the Control stage, efforts are made to keep the improved processes, products, or services under statistical control and to retain the gains. This course explores full and fractional factorial designs and the DOE process. In addition, it teaches how to select, test, and validate solutions using a variety of analysis, screening, and testing tools commonly used in Six Sigma. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation.

In any improvement initiative, organizations must determine whether their existing processes meet the targets and specifications demanded by the customer, or by the business. Measuring and analyzing the capability and performance of a process under review enables organizations to numerically represent and interpret its current state, and to report its sigma level. When done correctly, process capability analyses enable Black Belts to precisely assess current performance in light of future goals, and ultimately, to determine the need and targets of process improvement. Process capabilities can be determined for normal and non-normal data, variable (continuous) and attribute (discrete) data, and for long- and short-term alike. This course explores key considerations and calculations used in determining process capability and performance. This includes choosing parameters, verifying the stability and normality of a given process, and gathering and interpreting capability and performance data using common indices. The course also explores the special treatment of non-normal data and attributes data in the context of a capability study and long-and short-term capability. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.

Customers are at the heart of all Six Sigma initiatives, and this focus on customers is what makes Six Sigma an outstanding organizational performance improvement program. The voice of the customer (VOC) is a Six Sigma strategy used to capture requirements and feedback from customers in order to meet their requirements. Voice of the customer is a critical input at every stage in the Six Sigma DMAIC process, particularly at the Define stage. At this stage, critical customer requirements concerning quality, cost, process, and delivery are collected and translated into measurable, actionable project goals using a number of tools. Using VOC begins with defining Six Sigma goals for collecting and analyzing customer requirements. It is imperative that Six Sigma leaders determine the critical to x (CTx) requirements concerning quality, cost, process, and delivery requirements of customers and the organization. Then the team needs to identify and select the most effective methods for collecting customer feedback and requirements. From there, customer requirements are translated into measurable, actionable project goals. This course examines how an organization uses the voice of the customer to define the problem at hand and to set the direction of its Six Sigma efforts. It discusses some common customer data collection methods - such as surveys, interviews, and focus groups - and looks at how to ensure validity and reliability in data collection. In addition, the course illustrates how tools such as CTx, SIPOC, Kano analysis, critical-to-quality (CTQ) analysis, and quality function deployment (QFD) are used to translate customer data into critical customer requirements and actionable goals for the Six Sigma team. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation.
