What is Six Sigma?


A statistical concept that measures a process in terms of defects at the six sigma level, there 3.4 defects per million opportunities
A philosophy and a goal : as perfect as practically possible A methodology and a symbol of quality

Why Six Sigma?


At GE, Six Sigma added more than $ 2 billion to the bottom line in 1999 alone Motorola saved more than $ 15 billion in the first 10 years of its Six Sigma effort AlliedSignal reports saving $ 1,5 billion through Six Sigma.

Why Six Sigma?


Six Sigma is about practices that help you eliminate defects and always deliver products and services that meet customer specifications

Cost of Poor Quality


What is cost of scrap?

What is cost of rework?


What is cost of excessive cycle times and delays?

Cost of Poor Quality


What is cost of business lost because customers are dissatisfied with your products or services? What is cost of opportunities lost because you didnt have time or the resources to take advantage of them?

Critical-to-Quality (CTQ)
Elements of a process that significantly affect the output of that process. Identifying these elements is figuring out how to make improvements that can dramatically reduce costs and enhance quality.

Tools and Roles for Six Sigma

Tools for Six Sigma


Creating flowcharts of the step in a process operations, decision points, delays, movements, handoffs, rework, loops, and controls or inspections. A process map is illustrated description of how a process work. Process Mapping

Tools for Six Sigma


DOE is a structured, organized method for determining the relationship between factors (Xs) affecting a process and the output of that process (Y). Design of Experiments or DOE

www.exploreHR.org

24

Tools for Six Sigma


A group of rows and columns, with one set of increments marked along the X (horizontal) axis and another set of increments marked along the Y (vertical) axis. The purpose of using XY matrix is to study and understand the relationship between what you are putting into a process and what your customer is getting out of it. The XY matrix allows the team to identify gaps, areas for improvement.

Tools for Six Sigma


The goal of this tool is to ensure that your measurement system is statically confident that its both accurate and precise each and every time it is used. Undertaken during Measure phase, your MSA determines whether or not you can take a certain measurement and repeat or reproduce it among different people who take the same measurement.
Measurement System Analysis

Tools for Six Sigma


Process capability tool is the measure of a process being able to meet specification requirements and fulfill customer CTQ needs on a long term basis.
Process Capability Tool

27

Tools for Six Sigma


Investigating a theory about the suspected cause (s) of a particular effect in a process to determine if it is correct. Its a compass that points you directly to the vital few factors that are most affecting your process. Hypothesis Testing

www.exploreHR.org

28

Tools for Six Sigma


The manner in which a part or process can fail to meet a specification, creating a defect or non-conformance, and the impact on the customer if that failure mode is not prevented or corrected. Failure Mode Effect Analysis

Tools for Six Sigma


A detailed assessment and guide for maintaining all the positive changes you, your black belt, and the project team have made. It ensures that all your analysis and efforts stay in effect and that you have information at your disposal to prevent backsliding or a return to less than optimal performance standard. Control Plan

Key Roles for Six Sigma


Executive Leadership Includes CEO and other key top management team members. They are responsible for setting up a vision for Six Sigma implementation.

Champions

Are responsible for the Six Sigma implementation across the organization in an integrated manner. Champions also act as mentor to Black Belts.

www.exploreHR.org

31

Key Roles for Six Sigma


Master Black Belts Identified by champions, act as in-house expert coach for the organization on Six Sigma. They devote 100% of their time to Six Sigma.

Black Belts

Operate under Master Black Belts to apply Six Sigma methodology to specific projects. They primarily focus on Six Sigma project execution.
