This Minitab and Lean Six Sigma book shows the use of Minitab functions in an enhanced Lean Six Sigma Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) roadmap for improving a Y response in a process improvement project.
- Shows how to use a no-charge software app for the tracking of a process response, which provides insight that traditional metric reporting techniques cannot do
- Utilizes over 50 datasets to illustrate Y-response tracking from a process-output perspective and Y=f(X) analyses
- Describes over 200 figures to illustrate software inputs and outputs
- Shows the use of a clickable Lean Six Sigma Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) process-improvement roadmap for integrating the application of Lean and Six Sigma tools so that she uses the right tool at the right time when she undertakes improving processes
- Shows an approach for selecting Lean Six Sigma improvement projects that benefit the enterprise as a whole upon the project′s completion
- Provides a method to statistically show and quantify at the 30,000-foot-level the benefits of process improvement efforts
- Offers a system for going beyond a commonplace Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard methodology
- Provides an approach for enhancing digital transformation efforts in an organization
This Minitab and Lean Six Sigma book provides direction on how organizations can resolve issues that commonly occur with:
- Commonplace control charts and process capability report-out methodologies
- AQL reporting and tests
- Lean Six Sigma implementations
Direction on how organizations can benefit from the wise application of:
- Non-statistical and statistical methodologies.
- Design of Experiments (DOE) for transactional and manufacturing processes.
Provided are a 9-step system that is comprehensive for CEOs, presidents, general managers, and others for resolving management issues such as:
- Not meeting business goals
- Scorecards leading to bad behaviors
- Firefighting day-to-day problems
- Business strategies that are not tangible and often do not get completed
- Lean events that often do not offer a quantifiable benefit to the whole business
- Lean Six Sigma process improvement deployments that have improvement projects which are either not completed in a timely fashion or make substantial financial claims that are questionable
This Minitab and Lean Six Sigma book describe how to use the following tools in Minitab as part of a Lean Six Sigma DMAIC roadmap: X-bar and R control chart,
Process capability indices, Process capability indices, Histogram, Descriptive statistics, P-chart, Pareto chart, Dot plot, Cause-and-effect diagram, Probability plot, 30,000-foot-level reports, Visualization of data, Multi-vari chart, Comparing two samples, Inferences: attribute data, Inferences: continuous data, Hypothesis testing, Variance components, Correlation, Simple regression, Residuals, Single factor ANOVA, Analysis of Means (ANOM), Two factor ANOVA, Multiple regression, General Linear Model (GLM), Binary Logistic regression, Design of Experiments (DOE), Response surface methodology (RSM), Demonstration of process metric output response improvement, and Control phase – maintain the gain.
This Minitab and Lean Six Sigma book provides a technique for implementing Deming management philosophy and a system for addressing ISO 9000, the Baldrige award, and the Shingo Prize criteria within one methodology.
