Indium Corporation is pleased to announce that Pony Liao, area technical manager - Northern China, has earned his Six Sigma Black Belt certification through the American Society for Quality. 

Liao joins an elite group of engineers around the globe who have qualified for this certification. He becomes the fourth engineer at Indium Corporation to achieve this status, which includes Dr. Ron Lasky, senior technologist; Mario Scalzo, senior technical support engineer (USA); and David Hu, technical manager - China.

Earning Six Sigma Black Belt certification involves a rigorous two-step process. The first step is to achieve a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. This process involves two weeks of training that culminates in an examination in statistics, designed experiments, statistical process control, and "lean" continuous improvement concepts.

The second step, Black Belt certification, requires an additional two weeks of advanced training, including another examination in advanced statistics, designed experiments, statistical process control, and “lean” and continuous improvement concepts. After passing the Black Belt examination, the candidate must apply these skills to a project at their own company, solving a real problem.

Black Belt-certified engineers are qualified to design and execute experiments in support of continuous improvement. He or she is considered a leader and champion in the organization’s strategic efforts for lean continuous improvement processes and, typically, serves as a leader, mentor, and resource for Green Belts.
