When to use DMAIC. Tools for each level. This presentation is to help participants understand the concept of business process improvement using lean six sigma.
As you go through the application of DMAIC you will have a goal to find the root causes to the problem you are solving. Remember that a vital component of problem solving is cause and effect thinking or Y=f(X). To aid you in doing so, you should create a visual model of this goal as a funnel - a funnel that takes in a large number of the “trivial many contributors” and narrows them to the “vital few contributors” by the time they leave the bottom. At the top of the funnel you are faced with all possible causes - the “vital few” mixed in with the “trivial many.” When you work an improvement effort or project, you must start with this type of thinking. You will use various tools and techniques to brainstorm possible causes of performance problems and operational issues based on data from the process. In summary, you will be applying an appropriate set of “analytical methods” and the “Y is a function of X” thinking, to transform data into the useful knowledge needed to find the solution to the problem. It is a mathematical fact that 80 percent of a problem is related to six or less causes, the X’s. In most cases it is between one and three. The goal is to find the one to three Critical X’s from the many potential causes when we start an improvement project. In a nutshell, this is how the Six Sigma methodology works.

1. Alignment is the state of arranging or placing items into a line. Alignment may also be stated as lines that are formed, an adjustment to a line to make straight, straightening, or drawing a straight line through a point. 2. Applications - In many applications, alignment is used to name the process of lining up components to operate properly, as in an electrical circuit. 3. Vehicles and Transportation - When alignment is used for cars, it refers to setting and adjusting a crooked wheel base back into line. In transportation, alignment refers to highway and railroad strategic plans.
Here are three approaches for identifying projects. Do you know what the best approach is? The most popular process for generating and selecting projects is by holding “brainstorming” sessions. In brainstorming sessions a group of people get together, sometimes after polling process owners for what “blatantly obvious” problems are occurring, and as a team try to identify and refine a list of problems that MAY be causing issues in the organization. Furthermore in an organization that does not have an intelligent problem-solving methodology in-place, such as Six Sigma, Lean or even TQM, what follows the project selection process brainstorm is ANOTHER brainstorming session focused on coming up with ideas on how to SOLVE these problems. Although Brainstorming itself can be very structured it falls far short of being a systematic means of identifying projects that will reduce Cost of Poor Quality throughout the organization. Why…for several reasons. One, it does not ensure that we are dealing with the most important high-impact problems, but rather what happens to be the recent fire fight initiatives. Two, usually brainstorming does not utilize a data based approach, it relies on tribal knowledge, experience and what people THINK is happening. As we know what people THINK is happening and what is ACTUALLY happening can be two very different things. In this module we are going to learn about establishing a structured approach for Project Selection.
These are some examples of Business Metrics or Key Performance Indicators. What metric should you focus on…it depends? What is the project focus? What are your organizations strategic goals? Is Cost of Sales preventing growth? Are customer complaints resulting in lost earnings? Are excess cycle times and yield issues eroding market share? Is the fastest growing division of the business the refurbishing department? It depends because the motivation for organizations vary so much and all projects should be directly aligned with the organizations objectives. Answer the question: What metrics are my department not meeting? What is causing us pain?
Once a metric point has been determined another important question needs to be asked – What is my metric a function of? In other words what are all of the things that affect this metric? We utilize the Tree Diagram to facilitate the process of breaking down the metric of interest. When creating the Tree Diagram you will eventually run into activities which are made up of processes. This is where projects will be focused because this is where defects, errors and waste occur.

PREFACEThis document is created with your company capability and capacity needs in mind.Many companies want to provide the best possible products and services toconsistently meet and exceed customer expectations.To do this, we have discovered from experience that the voice of the employee (VOE)must be elevated since it is the employees that make things happen at every touchpoint or moment of truth.Elevation of the VOE means that VOP (voice of the process), technology enablers andVOB (voice of the business) have been taken care of and optimized. Product andservice transformation will be assured once VOC= VOB+ VOP + VOE.As you continue on your growth path, the stakes for success and failure will becomeelevated. We will counsel that you make plans to create a business processoptimization group to drive a formal & structured approach to enterprise-widebusiness process improvement.The need to effectively and successfully transform mission-critical and customer-facingprocesses and people have become magnified for various stakeholders.

Lean/six sigma strategy We use a variety of Six Sigma tools to help separate the “vital few” variables (X’s) (X1) effecting our outcome (Y) from the “trivial many.” (X10) (X4) Some processes contain many, many variables. However, our outcome (Y) is not effected equally by all of them. (X8) By focusing on the vital few we instantly (X7) gain leverage on maximizing our outcome, result or Y.

10. Corporate transformation Approaches to project selection There are three basic approaches to Project Selection…“Blatantly Obvious” “Brainstorming Approach” Things that clearly occur on Identifies projects based on a repetitive basis and individual’s “experience” and present problems in “tribal knowledge” of areas delivering our service(s) or that may be creating product(s). problems in delivering our service(s) / product(s) and hopefully tie to bottom-line business impact. “Structured Approach” Identifies projects based on organizational data, provides a direct plan to effect core business metrics that have bottom-line impact. All three ways work…the Structured Approach is the most desirable. 31
