  • Expectations from the Measure Phase A detailed process map has been developed by the team and reflects key customer requirements and process variables. Key input, process and output metrics have been identified for data collection (potential Critical X’s) The relationship between process inputs and customer requirements has been investigated to provide a direction for the Analysis Phase. Special cause variation is reduced/removed providing an accurate picture of the process. A measurement system is in place and it’s error is understood. Baseline capability has been established and a path forward has been identified. A detailed project plan for the next phase exists, is realistic and reflects a more accurate financial impact statement. Who Should Attend Green Belt or Black Belt Required Project Leader Required Project Sponsor Required Process Owner Required (if not = Project Sponsor) Project Team Nice to have; Required for M, A, I, and C Stakeholders Required/Strongly Recommended Deployment Director Recommended Senior Management As possible or at DD request Master Black Belt Strongly Recommended (if available to attend)

This project is contained within the Fort Knox Garrison and can transfer to other training support missions on Fort Knox. </li></ul><ul><li>We are feeling the pain in training and tank maintenance. </li></ul><ul><li>Soldiers fail to do a quality PMCS for the lack of time, training, and command emphasis. </li></ul>

Currently, 90% of the tanks drawn require maintenance for mission readiness. Approximately 10% of faults listed on the 5988-E ‘s completed by soldiers are tracked by UMA. Lastly, tank bumper number accuracy during T-2 is currently at 10% which causes excess work in the last days of the mission support draw.

M1 series Draw Process
    9. 9. Operational Definitions <ul><li>Y – Continuous data-Process starts at the T-6 IPR and stops when the tanks are staged in the motor pool awaiting HETT movement. The cycle time boundaries are the UMA’s hours of operation (0730-1530, M-F) and the units of measure are hours and individual faults. The unit of measurement is tank quality, and weekends, holidays, and non-business hours are not included. </li></ul><ul><li>Y – Discrete data-Success is a tank bumper number given to a soldier to draw for a tank that is ready for training. A defect is work that has to be done to make the tank ready for training after the bumper number has been given to the unit. Also, success is a 5988-E that is correctly completed by a soldier and updated by the UMA within 7 days of receipt. A defect is an incorrectly completed 5988-E (by the soldier), or a correctly completed 5988-E that the UMA fails to update within 7 days. </li></ul><ul><li>X – Draw times of other events that effect tank quality. These areas under examination are the Contracts Process, and BII issue points </li></ul>

    11. 11. Measurement System Analysis <ul><li>The measurement systems are acceptable. The data is considered to have no potential for significant error. Will appropriately use the data during the Analyze Phase. </li></ul>Type of Measurement Error Description Considerations to this Project Discrimination (resolution) The ability of the measurement system to divide measurements into “data categories” Work hours can be measured to .25 hours. Tank draw times are measured to +- .25 hours. Bias The difference between an observed average measurement result and a reference value No bias - Work hours and draw start-stop times consistent through the population. Stability The change in bias over time No bias of work hours and draw data. Repeatability The extent variability is consistent Not an issue. Labor and tank usage is based on course requirements, so it is historical and felt to be accurate enough for insight and analysis. Reproducibility Different appraisers produce consistent results Usage data deemed not reproducible, therefore was not considered in determining which were used during the tank draw Variation The difference between tanks Tanks are either Fully Mission Capable or Non Fully Mission Capable.
    12. 12. Baseline Data <ul><li>The current tank draw process has a normal distribution </li></ul><ul><li>The mean time to draw one tank is .56 or 34 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>The tank draw range is .25 hours (15 minutes) to 2 hours (120 minutes) and the standard deviation is .4 (24 minutes) </li></ul><ul><li>The mean number of 5988-E’s updated by UMA is .1 or 10% </li></ul>The average Tank Draw Time is 34 minutes +/- 24 minutes.
    13. 13. Baseline Data Cont. <ul><li>33% of tanks presented to draw are not ready for issue. </li></ul><ul><li>10% of 5988-E faults annotated by soldiers during tank draw is updated by UMA clerks. </li></ul><ul><li>67% of tank bumper numbers presented to 1/16 at T-2 by UMA is actually drawn for mission support. </li></ul>These numbers take into account vehicles presented to draw but never actually drawn or PMCSed. These numbers represent what was actually given, PMCS’ed, and drawn.
    14. 14. What does it all mean? The outlier was a vehicle issued that was actually NMC and required 90 minutes to repair. The vehicle that required 60 minutes was actually dispatched to another unit. Two of the five that required 45 minutes of work were deadline with a third needing a QAQC from UMA 5.25 hours were spent doing rework that is non value added
    15. 15. Process Capability <ul><li>The current tank draw process is capable of issuing 2 tanks per hour with a 33% critical maintenance defect rate. </li></ul>

    44. 44. Measure Tollgate Checklist <ul><li>Has a more detailed Value Stream Map been completed to better understand the process and problem, and show where in the process the root causes might reside? </li></ul><ul><li>Has the team conducted a value-added and cycle time analysis, identifying areas where time and resources are devoted to tasks not critical to the customer? </li></ul><ul><li>Has the team identified the specific input (x), process (x), and output (y) measures needing to be collected for both effectiveness and efficiency categories (I.e. Quality, Speed, and Cost Efficiency measures)? </li></ul><ul><li>Has the team developed clear, unambiguous operational definitions for each measurement and tested them with others to ensure clarity and consistent interpretation? </li></ul><ul><li>Has a clear, reasonable choice been made between gathering new data or taking advantage of existing data already collected by the organization? </li></ul><ul><li>Has an appropriate sample size and sampling frequency been established to ensure valid representation of the process we are measuring? </li></ul><ul><li>Has the measurement system been checked for repeatability and reproducibility, potentially including training of data collectors? </li></ul><ul><li>Has the team developed and tested data collection forms or check sheets which are easy to use and provide consistent, complete data? </li></ul><ul><li>Has baseline performance and process capability been established?
