  1. 1. Six Sigma: An Overview
  2. 2. CONTENTSA• Why: Six SigmaB• What: Six SigmaC• How: Six SigmaD• 6σ Project: Using DMAICFOURSECTIONS
  3. 3. Six Sigma: Why Factor
  4. 4. Why 6σ: An Example !!• Customers want their pizzadelivered fast!• Guarantee = “30 minutes or less”• What if we measured performance and found anaverage delivery time of 23.5 minutes?– On-time performance is great, right?– Our customers must be happy with us, right?
  5. 5. Why 6σ: An Example !!How often are we delivering on time?Answer: Look at the variation!• Managing by the average doesn‟t tell the whole story. Theaverage and the variation together show what‟s happening.sx30 min. or less0 10 20 30 40 50
  6. 6. Why 6σ: An Example !!Reduce Variation to Improve PerformanceHow many standarddeviations can you“fit” within customerexpectations?• Sigma level measures how often we meet (or fail to meet)the requirement(s) of our customer(s).sx30 min. or less0 10 20 30 40 50
  7. 7. Variation  Customer: The Relation• Variation means that aprocess does not producethe same result (the “Y”)every time.• Some variation will exist inall processes.• Variation directly affects customer experiences.Customers do not look at averages!-10-505101520
  8. 8. Six Sigma: PurposeA scientific and practical method to achieveimprovements in a companyScientific:• Structured approach.• Assuming quantitative data.Practical:• Emphasis on financial result.• Start with the voice of the customer.“Show methe data””Show methe money”

  11. 11. Six Sigma: What Factor
  12. 12. • The term “Six Sigma” was coined by Bill Smith, an engineer with Motorola• Late 1970s - Motorola started experimenting with problem solving throughstatistical analysis• 1987 - Motorola officially launched it’s Six Sigma programOrigin of Six SigmaMotorolathe company that invented Six Sigma
  13. 13. What‟s in a name ?μσ• Sigma is the Greek letter representing the standarddeviation of a population of data.• Sigma is a measureof variation(the data spread)
  14. 14. Six Sigma: DefinitionSix Sigma – The 3 Distinct Elements• A Measure:– A Statistical definition of how far a process deviates from perfection• A Target:– 3.4 defects per million opportunities• A Philosophy:– A long term business strategy focused on the reduction of the costthrough reduction of variability in product & process

  17. 17. Six Sigma: Reality• Six Sigma through the correct application ofstatistical tools can reap a company enormousrewards that will have a positive effect foryearsOr• Six Sigma can be a dismal failure if not usedcorrectly
  18. 18. Six Sigma: Spotlight• Accelerating fast breakthrough performance• Significant financial results in 4-8 months• Ensuring Six Sigma is an extension of theCorporate culture, not the program of month• Results first, then culture change!
  19. 19. Six Sigma: Reason for Success• The Success at Motorola, GE andAlliedSignal has been attributed to:– Strong leadership (Bob Galvin, Jack Welch andLarry Bossidy personally involved)– Initial focus on operations– Aggressive project selection (potential savings incost of poor quality > $50,000/year)– Training the right people

  26. 26. Six Sigma: Process
  27. 27. Design For Six Sigma (DFSS): DMADV• 6 Sigma uses DMADV method for development of newproducts• Define design goals that are consistent with customer demands and theenterprise strategy.• Measure and identify CTQs• Analyze to develop and design alternatives,• Design details, optimize the design,• Verify the design, set up pilot runs, implement the production process
  28. 28. What is DFSS?• Design For Six Sigma (DFSS)– A rigorous approach to the design of a new product orservice– The goals:• Reduce delivery time and development cost and• Increase the effectiveness of the product or service and hencecustomer satisfaction.– Key elements:• A customer focus and the ability to measure quality using the sixsigma metric and philosophy• Appropriate design that delivers excitement without failure, anddoes so to budget and expectation• An overarching business strategy and management that brings outthe very best for organic growth, through the repeated and regularlaunch and successful development of new products and services
  29. 29. What is DFSS?
  30. 30. DMAIC - Simplified• Define– What is important?• Measure– How are we doing?• Analyze– What is wrong?• Improve– Fix what‟s wrong• Control– Ensure gains are maintained toguarantee performance• A logical and structured approach toproblem solving and processimprovement• An iterative process (continuousimprovement)• A quality tool with focus on changemanagement
