DMAIC process improvement project

Lean Six Sigma projects are to following a define-measure-analyze-improve-control (DMAIC) process improvement road map. The Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) DMAIC road map provides how-to details for effectively integrating lean and Six Sigma tools when undertaking lean Six Sigma process improvement efforts.

IEE DMAIC road map execution details are described in the 1100+ page book ″Integrated Enterprise Excellence Volume III – Improvement Project Execution: A Management and Black Belt Guide for Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard″. The IEE book-described DMAIC road map gives focus to positively impacting a process’ output baseline performance response, which is reported from a 30,000-foot-level, predictive metric process-output-response point of view.

Demonstration and the quantification of process improvement efforts are provided when a project′s 30,000-foot-level baseline metric transitions to an enhanced level of performance.

Enhanced Six Sigma Framework

Six Sigma does five principal things: It emphasizes the need to recognize opportunities and eliminate customer-defined defects. It recognizes that variation hinders ability to reliably deliver high-quality services. It requires data-driven decisions and incorporates a comprehensive set of quality tools under a framework for effective problem solving. It provides a highly perspective cultural infrastructure to effectively obtain sustainable results. And, when implemented correctly, it promises and delivers substantial improved operating profit.

Enhancement to Six Sigma Metrics

This described predictive reporting technique overcomes issues that occur with the traditional Six Sigma metrics of sigma quality level and process capability indices  (e.g., Cp , Cpk, Pp, and Ppk).  The provided 30,000-foot-level report-out template provides a process stability assessment and a futuristic statement for stable processes in words that are easy to understand — …
