    This course teaches you the advanced problem-solving skills you will need in order to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. Project assignments between sessions require you to apply what you’ve learned. This course is presented in three five-day sessions over a three-month period.

    Learn the advanced problem-solving skills you need to implement the principles, practices and techniques of Six Sigma to maximize performance and cost reductions in your organization. During this three-week practitioner course, you will learn how to measure a process, analyze the results, develop process improvements and quantify the resulting savings. You will be required to complete a project demonstrating mastery of appropriate analytical methods and pass an examination to earn USC and IIE's Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate. This practitioner course for Six Sigma implementation provides extensive coverage of the Six Sigma process as well as intensive exposure to the key analytical tools associated with Six Sigma, including project management, team skills, cost analysis, FMEA, basic statistics, inferential statistics, sampling, goodness of fit testing, regression and correlation analysis, reliability, design of experiments, statistical process control, measurement systems analysis and simulation. Computer applications are emphasized.

  • CS Colloquium: Jaewoo Seo (Weta Digital)

    Tue, Aug 19, 2014 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Jaewoo Seo , Weta Digital

    Talk Title: Developing Interactive Facial Rigs in a Production Environment

    Series: CS Colloquium

    Abstract: Maya offers excellent functional flexibility but often suffers from sub-optimal performance scalability as a counterpart. This becomes problematic in large productions, where tens of artists work together on a single scene. One scene file can easily contain tens of thousands of nodes. Here we share our experience of improving the performance of highly complex facial rigs in Maya.

    Biography: Jaewoo Seo is a computer graphics researcher. His research interests include motion capture and animation techniques of faces and bodies. He has presented a number of research papers in international journals and conferences such as Siggraph or Siggraph Asia. At Weta Digital, he has been working on several R&D projects in facial animation and body motion capture for last two years. Before coming to New Zealand, he was a researcher at OLM Digital, Inc., one of the leading animation and visual effects companies in Japan. He received his PhD (2012) and MS (2007) degrees in Culture Technology from KAIST, Korea and Bachelor degrees in Digital Media and Computer Science (both in 2005) from Ajou University, Korea.
