I conducted a Lean Six Sigma 2.0 Web Meeting for the El Paso, Texas ASQ Section. This meeting discussed the content of a published article ″Why Lean Six Sigma Deployments Fail: And what you can do to resolve the Issue.″
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.
In traditional Lean Six Sigma, process improvement is attempted using a Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) roadmap. The author of the award-winning book, Implementing Six Sigma, shares how to implement a DMAIC roadmap for measurable Lean Six Sigma success.
Measurement System Analysis Six Sigma is one step in a Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) process improvement project roadmap.
How can you be sure your Lean Six Sigma Training is worth the investment? You’ll want to be sure to check out the five critical points this 13 page article reveals.
In Lean Six Sigma, the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) roadmap is to be followed for the execution of process improvement projects; however there can be very great differences in how this roadmap is executed.
A new lean six sigma project charter and measurements is the topic one Master Black Belt (MBB) encountered this week.
A lean Six Sigma improvement project needs to following a DMAIC roadmap so that the best lean or Six Sigma tools are used at appropriate times. A consistent define-measure-analyze-improve-control (DMAIC) roadmap is also needed so that the same approach (with all its execution details) for executing improvement projects is used across the organization.
Description of 11 Lean tools in a single article.
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.
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 — …
