  11. 11. 7<br />lets talk about the<br />Six Sigma Process<br />
  12. 12. Six Sigma Process<br />8<br />Design<br />Goals based on a customer centric focus.<br />Measure<br />Measure the current procedure and gather relevant data.<br />Analyze<br />Verify relationship of factors and ensure that all factors have been reviewed.<br />Optimize and improve the current process.<br />Improve<br />Control<br />Control the new process.<br />
  13. 13. Design<br />Define an opportunity from the business and customer perspectives.<br /><ul><li>Translate Voice of the Customer into measurable metrics
  14. 14. Understand the variables that affect the key metrics
  15. 15. Map the process to be improved with defined goals
  16. 16. Apply data mining techniques to establish improvement opportunities</li></ul>9<br />
  17. 17. Measure<br />Understand the process and its current performance.<br /><ul><li>Operational definitions & Process mapping
  18. 18. Determine the current state of performance for a baseline
  19. 19. Establish the metrics required to monitor the process
  20. 20. Control charts, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA)
  21. 21. Proposed process layout</li></ul>10<br />
  22. 22. Analyze<br />Search for key factors that have the largest impact on process performance.<br /><ul><li>Sample size & frequency for sampling
