SAMPLE PAPER – GREEN BELT

Sample Test Questions (Select all applicable answers)

Phase 1 - Define Phase

1. A shoe manufacturing firm learned through a Lean Six Sigma project their boot soles

could be made of a different material requiring two less steps in the process. Removal

of these two steps yielded a monthly cost savings of $7,500. Therefore the reported

financial savings for this LSS project were _____________.

a. $45,000

b. $75,000

c. $90,000

d. $120,000

2. A Belt utilized a diamond symbol in a Process Map she created for the process that

was subject to her LSS project. By use of the diamond symbol she was showing a(n)

_______________ point in the process.

a. Ending

b. Beginning

c. Decision

d. Repair station

3. When in the process of trying to identify the Critical X’s for a LSS project a Belt creates

a(n) _____________ because frequently it is 20% of the inputs that have an 80%

impact on the output.

a. Pareto Chart

b. FMEA

c. Np Chart

d. X-Y Diagram

frequently include activities across various department to capture all the appropriate

activity. He will use _____________ to show which department is responsible for

which steps in the process.

a. Subscripts

b. Superscripts

c. Swim Lanes

appropriate table, can tell a Belt what

____________________________________.

a. Ratio the area under the curve is to the total population

b. Number of Standard Deviations are between X and μ

c. The Median of the sample population is

d. Proportion of the data is between X and μ

encounter Bias which is the __________________ of a measured value from the

________________ value.

a. Spread, Mean of the population

b. Deviation, hoped for

c. Deviation, true
