The Measure phase is also when the project team leader prepares for data collection.
Instructor note: Remind the class of the qualifier in the beginning - that it is difficult to explain all the tools. The problem resolution is more statistical and we will only mention the tools that will be taught later. Also, tell about when the DOE is useful - When all data on Xs and corresponding Ys are not available or when data generation is prohibitive.
Instructor note: Although the Pareto is shown here, it can be useful in earlier or later part of the project also.
Instructor note: Talk about how this deliverable means identifying “quantitatively” the sources of variation. It could be a Y=F(X) relationship or just the results of the ANOVA which says 80% of the Y variation is caused by X1, X2 and their interaction etc.
Instructor: Encourage participants to come up with their own interpretations of each of the deliverable in their projects
There are three levels of competencies of Six Sigma. The Green Belt or GB should be able to use DMAIC process with basic Six Sigma tools for project execution. This person Leads Six Sigma projects in their functions. The Black Belt or BB should be able to use advanced tools in projects and mentor GBs on Six Sigma techniques and tools. This person should Define Six Sigma projects and lead project teams and are process experts in their functions. Master Black Belt or MBB should be able to train Black Belts as well as Green Belts and Mentor Black Belt projects. They are the drivers of cultural change and should be able to mentor BBs across functions. They should be able to develop new tools. Champions are Business leaders who provide resources and champion the Six Sigma implementation in a business unit

Before We Start…4 Quality is a state in which value entitlement is realized for the customer and provider in every aspect of the business relationship. Business Quality is highest when the costs are at the absolute lowest for both the producer & consumer. Six Sigma provides maximum value to companies in the forms of increased profits and maximum value to consumers with high-quality products and services at the lowest possible cost. Defect is any process output that does not meet customer specifications, or that could lead to creating an output that does not meet customer specifications. Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) is the cost that would disappear if systems, processes, and products were perfect.
Process & Process Capability5 Process is a unique combination of tools, materials, methods, and people engaged in producing a measurable output; for example a manufacturing line for machine parts. All processes have inherent stastical variability which can be evaluated by statistical methods. The Process Capability is a measurable property of a process to the specification, expressed as a process capability index (e.g., Cpk or Cpm) or as a process performance index (e.g., Ppk or Ppm). The output of this measurement is usually illustrated by a histogram and calculations that predict how many parts will be produced out of specification (OOS). Process capability is also defined as the capability of a process to meet its purpose as managed by an organizations management and process definition structures ISO 15504. Two parts of process capability are: 1) Measure the variability of the output of a process, and 2) Compare that variability with a proposed specification or product tolerance.
Six Sigma Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects in any process -- from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service. To achieve Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO). A Six Sigma opportunity is then the total quantity of chances for a defect. Customer focused business improvement process. Defect reduction in a process or product. Common measurement scale called the Sigma capability or Z. Six Sigma capability corresponds to an efficiency of 99.9996%. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Black Belts", "Green Belts", etc.) who are experts in these methods. Six Sigma is a Business Philosophy Six Sigma is a Business Philosophy
History Six Sigma was developed by Bill Smith, QM at Motorola It’s implementation began at Motorola in 1987 It allowed Motorola to win the first Baldrige Award in 1988 Several major companies in the world have adopted Six Sigma since then . …and applied to Manufacturing processes to improve product quality Texas Instruments, Asea Brown Boveri, AlliedSignal, General Electric, Bombardier, Nokia Mobile Phones, Lockheed Martin, Sony, Polaroid, Dupont, American Express, Ford Motor,……. GE applied the Six Sigma methodology to improve all business processes and it became a way of running the business. Six Sigma is a Competitive Tool Six Sigma is a Competitive Tool
What is Sigma9 Sigma (upper case Σ, lower case σ ) is the eighteenth letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 200. Sigma is used to show standard variation. In probability theory and statistics, the standard deviation of a statistical population, a data set, or a probability distribution is the square root of its variance. It shows how much variation there is from the "average" (mean). A low standard deviation indicates that the data points tend to be very close to the mean, whereas high standard deviation indicates that the data are spread out over a large range of values.
The Standard Deviation µ Σ (X – X)2 1 Sigma - 68% σ= n-1 2 Sigma - 95% 3 Sigma - 99.73 %Upper Specification Limit (USL)Target Specification (T)Lower Specification Limit (LSL)Mean of the distribution (µ)Standard Deviation of the distribution (σ) 1σ T USL 3σ

Six Sigma - Methodologies17 There are two Six Sigma sub-methodologies: DMAIC and DMADV. The Six Sigma DMAIC process (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) is an improvement system for existing processes falling below specification and looking for incremental improvement. The Six Sigma DMADV process (define, measure, analyze, design, verify) is an improvement system used to develop new processes or products at Six Sigma quality levels. Both Six Sigma processes are executed by Six Sigma Green Belts and Six Sigma Black Belts, and are overseen by Six Sigma Master Black Belts.
Six Sigma - DMAIC Vs DMADV18 DMAIC DMADV Define the project goals and customer Define the project goals and customer (internal and external) deliverables (internal and external) deliverables Measure the process to determine current Measure and determine customer needs and specifications performance Analyze the process options to meet the Analyze and determine the root cause(s) customer needs of the defects Design (detailed) the process to meet the Improve the process by eliminating customer needs defects Verify the design performance and ability to Control future process performance meet customer needs W When To Use DMADV hen To Use DMAIC A product or process is not in existence at The DMAIC methodology should be used your company and one needs to be when a product or process is in existence developed at your company but is not meeting The existing product or process exists and customer specification or is not performing has been optimized (using either DMAIC or adequately. not) and still doesnt meet the level of customer specification or six sigma level

Example - Pizza Delivery Service XYZ a fast food company, owned by Mr. ABC, runs a pizzadelivery service in and around Delhi. XYZ which was doing very well over the last four years,notices a drop in sales over the past five months. Customercomplaints about deliveries have been gradually on the rise. Several complaints from customers regarding irregulardeliveries were bothering ABC. He had increased the number of delivery personnel toimprove delivery performance. But his customers were stillleaving him. Pizza Hut, a multinational fast food chain, had set up shopin downtown and was becoming more popular with thecustomers. XYZ neither had the financial muscle to match Pizza Hut’s
