Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality output of processes by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. It uses a set of quality management methods, mainly empirical, statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization ("Champions", "Black Belts", "Green Belts", "Yellow Belts", etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has specific goals, like increase productivity, increase efficiency, reduce pollution, reduce cost, increase customer satisfaction, increase profits and become more competitive. Sigma is the designation for the standard deviation, and a process capability of six standard deviations equals 3,4 defect per million opportunities. That is an ambitious goal! It requires continuous improvement and focus on understanding variation to gain control of production.

Six Sigma projects follow a project methodology inspired by Deming's Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle. It includes 5 phases and bear the acronym DMAIC. DMAIC is used for projects aimed at improving an existing business process.

  • Define the system, the voice of the customer and their requirements, and the project goals, specifically.
  • Measure key aspects of the current process and collect relevant data; calculate the 'as-is' Process Capability.
  • Analyse the data to investigate and verify cause-and-effect relationships. Determine what the relationships are, and attempt to ensure that all factors have been considered. Seek out root cause of the defect under investigation.
  • Improve or optimize the current process based upon data analysis using techniques such as design of experiments (DOE), Components of variation (CoV), poka yoke or mistake proofing, and standard work to create a new, future state process. Set up pilot runs to establish process capability.
  • Control the future state process to ensure that any deviations from the target are corrected before they result in defects. Implement control systems such as statistical process control - SPC, production boards, visual workplaces, and continuously monitor the process.

Do you want to know more? Here are free videos and pfd's within areas Lean Tech can help you:

Process control

statistical process control
Statistical Process Control - SPC, distinguish normal and special variation, which help you respond correctly to measurement results. You can use it to determine capability (robustness), stability, effect of changes, predictive maintenance and much more. Watch Statistical Process Control video.

Efficiency

production efficiency
Do you want to reduce energy and raw material consumption? Achieve more satisfied customers and reduce quality costs? Increase capacity and productivity? Lean Six Sigma is a fact-based improvement method that create measurable results. See pdf with 10 improvement tips to create effective and efficient processes.

Measurement error

measurement error
Suppliers state the uncertainty of instrument and measuring equipment. How does the medium, the environment, the measuring instrument and the person performing the analysis contribute to variation? To make good decisions, we need reliable measurements. Watch video about measurement error.

Productivity

productivity
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a widely used productivity indicator, revealing losses and enabling us to improve. OEE is influenced by availability, performance and quality, and the available production time is crucial. More about that in Lean Techs OEE video.

Time management

Time management

Set a goal, create a strategy, take action and measure. This article includes a video about time management showing you how a mindmap, an activity plan, and easy time registration that can help you measure, plan and improve.
