  2. 2. Run Chart Lean Six Sigma  Shows how the process varies over time  Shifts, trends, intermittent problems and cyclic patterns can be detected  Vertical-axis is the unit of measure; horizontal-axis is time  A baseline average or current average line can be used as a point-of-reference to detect process changes  When the Run Chart p-values are greater than alpha (e.g. .05), the characteristic of interest is not statistically significant. 2 UNCLASSIFIED
  3. 3. Run Chart Procedure Lean Six Sigma  Gather data over time in sequence  Create a graph with a vertical line and a horizontal line  The vertical line should cover the full range of measurements  The horizontal line should cover the time period which the data was collected  Add a baseline (using prior data) or average (current data) line to indicate process location (mean)  Plot the data on the graph connecting the points  Interpret the chart  Look for trends, patterns and/or unusual data points 3 UNCLASSIFIED

  24. 24. Takeaways Lean Six Sigma  When a process is “in control”  This implies a stable, predictable amount of variation (common cause variation)  This does not mean a “good” or desirable amount of variation  When a process is “out-of-control”  This implies an unstable, unpredictable amount of variation  It is subject to both common AND special causes of variation  A process can be in statistical control and not capable of consistently producing good output within specification limit. 24 UNCLASSIFIED
  25. 25. Process Capability Lean Six Sigma  Once a process is in statistical control, you want to determine if it is Capable -- Is it meeting specification limits and producing “good” or satisfactory services or deliverables?  You can determine capability by computing the # of Defects per Unit, Defects Per Opportunity and Defects Per Million Opportunities, and Rolled Throughput Yield.  You can also determine capability by comparing the width of the Process Variation (Voice of the Process) with the width of the specification limits (Voice of the Customer).  Measure the # of standard deviations that fit between the Process mean and the closest specification limit to derive the sigma level. 25 UNCLASSIFIED

  30. 30. Measures of Performance Lean Six Sigma  If we know the process mean and the process sigma, then we can describe the performance of the process.  But:  How do we know if the process performance is good or bad?  Who should determine if performance is good enough? ? 30 UNCLASSIFIED
  31. 31. Customer Specifications Lean Six Sigma • The specification limits represent the parameters of LSL Target USL performance desired by the customer. • The Upper Spec Limit (USL) & Lower Spec Limit (LSL) represent the level of tolerance around this desired target. • Together, they represent what the customer wants! Not what the process does. 31 UNCLASSIFIED

Additional Metrics of Six Sigma Lean Six Sigma  In addition to Sigma Level, four other performance metrics are of interest:  Defects Per Unit (DPU)  Process Capability  Defects Per Million Opportunities (DPMO)  Rolled Throughput Yield  If you know one… you can determine the others Suduko 46 UNCLASSIFIED
  47. 47. Defectives & Defects Lean Six Sigma  A defective unit is that which fails to meet customer requirements or standards  Late order, incorrect invoice, short-count, etc.  A defect is any reason for such a failure  Not filed correctly, incorrect line item, transposed numbers, etc.  A defective unit can have more than one defect 47 UNCLASSIFIED
  48. 48. Process Capability - DPU Lean Six Sigma  Defects Per Unit (DPU) – the average number of defects, of all types, over the total number of units produced  Unit is the item being processed o (order, invoice, form, plate, etc.) DPU = Total Number Defects Total Number Units Processed 48 UNCLASSIFIED
  49. 49. DPU Example Lean Six Sigma  In one month, 220 reports were sampled after being sent to customers  Among the 220 reports, 344 line items were found incorrect (defects) Unit = Report DPU = 344 incorrect line items / 220 Reports = 1.56 49 UNCLASSIFIED
  50. 50. Process Capability – DPO, DPMO, SL Lean Six Sigma  If you were checking 4 fields on each report, and each field DPO =Total Number Defects represented an opportunity for a Total Number Opportunities for Defect defect, then the Defects Per Opportunity (DPO) would be 344 / (220 * 4) = 344/880= .39  Convert DPO to Defects per Million Opportunities by DPMO = DPO * 1,000,000 multiplying DPO by a million. DPMO = 390,000  Convert DPMO to Sigma Level SL = NORMSINV(1-(DPMO/1000000))+1.5 (SL) using chart or formula or Sigma Level = 1.78 SL= NORMSINV(1 – DPO)+1.5 50 UNCLASSIFIED

Yield = (100- (10+5)) / 100 = .85 steps free of defects.  Step 2, 90 units in from Step 1, 10 scrapped and 7 are reworked to get 5 rework 80. (90-(10+7))/90 = .81 100 Step 1  Step 3, 80 units in from Step 2, 5 7 rework scrapped and 3 reworked to get 75. 90 Step 2 (80-(5+3))/80 = .9 3 rework  Step 4, 75 units in, 5 scrapped and 80 Step 3 10 rework 10 reworked to get 70. (75-(5+10)/75 10 10 = .8 5 75 Step 4  RTY = .85 * .81 * .9 * .8 = .49572 5 SCRAP 70 = 50% yield 51 UNCLASSIFIED

  88. 88. XY Matrix Lean Six Sigma  XY matrix is used to:  Identify and subjectively rank "sub-Ys"  Relate Xs to Ys  Take the first crack at: Y = f(X) 88 UNCLASSIFIED
  89. 89. Why Do We Need an XY Matrix? Lean Six Sigma To allow everyone involved with a process to agree on outputs critical to the product and/or customer Through numerical ranking, an XY matrix enables your team to assign a level of importance to each output variable Through association, an XY matrix enables a team to numerically assess the effect of each X on each Y It provides the team its first stab at determining Y = f(X) It leads the way to an area of focus on the process “Failure Modes and Effects Analysis” (FMEA) 89 UNCLASSIFIED
  90. 90. How to Create a Useful XY Matrix Lean Six Sigma Step 1: Use available information sources like process maps and fishbones to aid you in your identification of inputs and outputs. Step 2: List the output variables (Ys) along the top section of the matrix. These are outputs that the team and/or customer deem important. These may be a subset of the list of Ys identified on the process map. Step 3: Rank each output numerically using an arbitrary scale (possibly 1 to 10). The most important output receives the highest number. Enter these rankings in the Output Ranking row of the matrix. 90 UNCLASSIFIED
  91. 91. How to Create a Useful XY Matrix Lean Six Sigma Step 4: Identify all potential inputs or causes (Xs) that can impact the various Ys and list these along the left side of the matrix. Step 5: Numerically rate the effect of each X on each Y within the body of the matrix. Step 6: Use the results page to analyze and prioritize where to focus your effort when creating the preliminary FMEA. The XY matrix is a great team brainstorming tool. It can also facilitate future team activities. 91 UNCLASSIFIED

  113. 113. Abuse & Misuse of Correlation Lean Six Sigma  If we establish a correlation between X1 and Y, that does NOT necessarily mean variation in X1 caused variation in Y  A third variable that is associated with both X1 and Y may be “lurking.”  Relationship could be coincidental  To conclude that there is a relationship between two variables does NOT mean that there is a cause and effect relationship. Correlation Does NOT Determine Causation! A study conducted in New York indicated there was a proportional rise in ice cream sales and murder rates during summer months. Correlation or coincidence? 113 UNCLASSIFIED
