ISBN 978-952-5726-06-0 Proceedings of the 2009 International Workshop on Information Security and Application (IWISA 2009) Qingdao, China, November 21-22, 2009 Study on Six Sigma Project Management and Analysis System Model Su Zhitong1, Tang Zhiqing2 1 College of Information Engineering, North China Univ. of Tech., Beijing 100144, China 2 College of Information Engineering, North China Univ. of Tech., Beijing 100144, China Abstract At present, there are so many good project Chonghun Han and Young-Hak Lee[2] discussed an management software in domestic, but only a few of these information system, which can help enterprise and staff can manage and analysis the entire six sigma process of project proposal, training, project selection, project carry out Six Sigma activities effectively. The system implementation and project evaluation. The reason for this combines the Six Sigma DMAIC model with the is that the diversity and uncertainty of the implementation multivariate statistical techniques. Domestic XiaoBin process lead to difficulties in information and poor practicability. For this problem, this paper put forward a Song[3] Conducted a study on the information system Six Sigma Project Management and Analysis System Model. model which integrate Six Sigma and quality Verification through the actual subject, the model has great management, and then developed Six Sigma quality flexibility and practicality, and actualize well in the Six information systems for miniature bearing assembling Sigma Project Management and Analysis System software. Index Terms six sigma management; dynamic model; process. However, all these studies did not cover the DMAIC; software system model whole process from the Six Sigma project establishment to evaluation, and are based on the existing DMAIC I. INTRODUCTION model or the fixed implementation process. They did not consider the diversity of Six Sigma implementation Application of Six Sigma methods can improve the process, and is lack of flexibility and variability, can only capacity of project management as well as the quality apply to specific industry or production field. level.

  • 2. In this paper, the Six Sigma project management and Six Sigma project implementation process is not a analysis system model includes six parts. That is, simple process from the definition phase to the control phase, but workflow, the project implementation dynamic model a complex process, which is circulatory and repeatability . system, analytical tools, intelligence report system, the Therefore, this paper put forward that dynamic model of implementation of the project (the project team, project the project implementation should set up in the easy training, project implementation, project evaluation) and workflow to improve the flexibility of the model running. the user group (staff, Black Belt, consultants, enterprise In this paper, simple workflow system includes leaders and so on). As shown in Figure 1. workflow engine, workflow designer and process operation to resolve logic issue of service interaction; document processor to resolve service process logic; application program integrated design to resolve the problem of user assignment and permission assignment. Among them, the core scheduling algorithm adopted by workflow engine is PetriNet algorithm. B. project implementation dynamic model system Project implementation dynamic model system is the core of the model. The traditional model of project implementation is the DMAIC model, which is used by Figure 1. Six Sigma project management and system model many companies and projects. DMAIC is process improvement methods consisted of five phases, which are Among them, the simple workflow drive the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, control. model of dynamic model system, to improve flexibility 1)DMAIC extended model used by some companies, of model. The implementation of dynamic model such as DMAICQ, DMAICP(in which, Q and p is the system is the most important part of the model. It calls process of self-definition ),and so on; analytical tools and intelligent report system to manage 2)The simple variation of the DMAIC model used and control the project team, project training, project by some companies, such as standard quantitative implementation, project appraisal, a series of process. management scheme MIS model, and so on; The project process needs a variety of users of the 3)Different projects within the same company also project team to participate in. may adopt different implementation process model; A. Ssimple Workflow 4)The running model is not static. For example, the Workflow[4] is the computerization or automation of requirements of the project make adjustment, then local business processes. Workflow engine[5] is the core of model must change correspondingly. workflow, the task scheduler of project process and the In short, DMAIC model just reflects the general project resources distributor. The efficiency and implementation process. That does not accord with the reliability of the workflow engine directly determine the actual needs of each company and each project. The efficiency and performance of whole system. Simple actual project requires flexibility in implementation Workflow is a workflow, which simplifies the workflow process model. That is why this paper emphasis proposes engine. According to analyzing and abstracting the project dynamic model system on the premise of giving complex process, simple workflow system classified the six sigma project management and analysis system changing part and invariant part, and combined with model. visualization tools, process monitoring, inquiry statistics The dynamic model system of project module to manage and optimize the project process, and implementation includes model building, standard model, finally improve the work efficiency. user model, operating model and model library. It replaces the traditional and single DMAIC model, and is 619
  • 3. more systematic, comprehensive and flexible. It is shown Model is dynamic. Every step in the model is as Figure 2. defined as a node(process). The node of model is dynamic. Node itself, father-son relationship and sequence relationship among different nodes, work lists, resources, and documents in nodes can be increased, deleted and changed. There is no invariable model, only changing model depending on the requirements of company and project. User can customize or modify model to get the model you want. Node exists and is independent of the model. It can be called by model arbitrarily. Figure 2. project implementation dynamic model system Model can be standardized. The work lists, resources and documents of every node in model can be Among them, the standard model is the standardized, then added standardized indicator data to standardization of the referenced model, user model is make model to be standard model. In this way, the specific model suitable for project cases, operation model obtaintion of user model is on the basis of standard is the running model in project implementation process. model. a. Structure of dynamic model system Standard model, the user model and operation model Establish Model the standard model: In the are the control center of the whole project, which control dynamic model system of project implementation, the progress of project. It can call analysis tools of six standard model can use traditional DMAIC model, and sigma project, intelligent report system to support the can process and modify some classical model of model whole process from the project team, training, project library to get a new model quickly, and even can design a implementation to the project evaluation. new model. At the beginning of building model, the Graphical customization. The standard model and optional and design characteristics embody the dynamic user model are customized through the graphical tools. character of model. It reduces the tedious operation at the greatest degree. Standard model user model: user model can be C. analysis tool and Intelligent report system obtained through modifying standard model. For example, Analysis tools mainly include tool sets and tool integrate phase D and M of standard model DMAIC into interface, which include statistical analysis tools in new M, integrate phase A and I of standard model DMAIC each stage. It is used to be called by the model in DMAIC into new I, modify phase C to form S, then user dynamic model system of project implementation to can get yourself model MIS. analyze the data of project. The tools are shown as figure User model operation model: Combining with the 3. data of actual project, assign specific work lists, resources and documents for every node in user model to control TABLE1.
