Alternate improvement solutions are then weighed against each other to develop the best solution.

13I Pilot Best Solution Before permanently implementing the best solution, you may implement a pilot to confirm expected benefits. If successful, a transition plan is developed to outline the required steps for a successful full implementation.

Criteria Based Decision Matrix
Steps to Complete Deliverable:
Determine whether your process improvements will be made via DOE, “alternate solutions”, computer simulation, or some combination of these.
If DOE – design a DOE to meet the desired objectives
If Alternate Solution – ask each team member to define their best solution for each X. This often takes the form of alternate process maps.
If Computer Simulation - Develop a suitable computer simulation. A computer simulation is used to create a model of different process scenarios and to model multiple possible solutions. (Appropriate when a DOE/alternate solution is too expensive, time consuming, or unsafe to conduct.)
Whether from a DOE, “alternate solution”, or computer simulation, there are usually alternate ways to improve the X’s for long term benefit. Use the Pugh Matrix to review these, generate improved solutions, and select the best. Use an XY Criteria Based Decision Matrix to determine the best overall solution if the Pugh Matrix produces several solutions that appear comparable.
Computer simulation uses computer software to create a working model of the system under study
It is mainly used in the Analysis and Improve phases of DMAGIC
Facilitated through use of specialized computer software
Can be performed in limited fashion without specialized software, but is laborious
Computer Simulation Concept A computer simulation models the process by simulating it’s performance. Real Process Inputs Outputs Model Outputs Inputs Modeling Parameters
Basic Steps in Computer Simulation (1) Define problem (2) Map Process (3) Define inputs (4) Build model using software (5) Validate model (6) Perform simulations (7) Interpret results (8) Recommend and document
We are asked to model the process of wastewater flowing through a wastewater line which has 15 existing feeder lines and 10 feeders which will be constructed over the next 3 years
On average, what will be the projected flow during peak periods?
Current average flow has been observed at just over 4500GPM
What is the maximum expected flow under future conditions?
How many pumps do we expect to be running at any given time?
Step 2 - Map the Process WW Flow (GPM) Additional Feeder Lines P1 P2 P4 P3 Data reflects peak use periods. P25 P24
Step 3 - Define the Inputs WW Flow (GPM) Additional Feeder Lines P1 = operates 26% of time @ 400GPM P2 = operates 44% of time @ 300GPM P4 = operates 40% of time @ 800GPM P3 = operates 50% of time @ 1000GPM Data reflects peak use periods. P25 = operates 25% of time @ 300GPM P24 = operates 25% of time @ 800GPM
