Process Improvement Using Lean Six Sigma Methodology
Transcript of Process Improvement Using Lean Six Sigma Methodology
so...What is it that you do?
Lean is eliminating waste.
Six Sigma is eliminating variation.
These techniques can be used together
to improve inefficiencies and lower the cost to do business.
This adds value to the customer.
Who are they?
- Master Black
What is value?
Value is what the customer is willing to pay for.
It can be in the form of providing a product or service.
Lean is an approach that requires working together
to continuously improve processes. It requires a commitment
Mistake Proofing (Poka Yoke)....
'Quality is everyone's responsibility'
- W Edwards Deming
"It is not the EMPLOYER who pays the wages.
He only handles the money.
It is the PRODUCT that pays the wages."
Six Sigma follows the DMAIC approach....
Lean follows the PDCA model...
Seek to Identify the 8 Deadly Forms of Waste
"Time waste differs from material waste in that there can be no salvage. The easiest of all wastes and the hardest to correct is the waste of time, because wasted time does not litter the floor like wasted material."
- Henry Ford
Kai - to work together
Zen - to improve
We have a new facility...how should we lay it out?
Your Lean Six Sigma Team:
Defects cause rework. Rework can double, if not triple the cost
of performing a task that should have been done right the first time.
Not all defects are caught with inspection, some the customer finds.
Those can damage our reputation, which can lead to damaging our profits.
The most obvious is the external customer:
The person buying the goods or service
for DynCorp, Department of State is our customer.
However, we are all each other's internal customer:
The pilot is a customer of the mechanic
The mechanic is a customer of production control
Production control is the customer of the Buyer...
Lean Six Sigma uses many Tools to document your process including:
SIPOC Diagram - supplier, inputs, process, outputs, customer
Value Stream Map - this is where you look for the waste
Process Map - shows the different departments involved and steps
Spaghetti Diagrams - used to show all of the movement in a layout
Tools to quantify risk:
FMEA: Failure Modes Effect Analysis
Rolled Throughput Yield
Gage R& R (Repeatability & Reproducility)
The 5 Why Method
Cause and Effect Diagrams
Lean is a way of:
It is a continuous journey

Close the Project
Not all tools are required for every project . See project checklist for requirements.
The Define Phase
The most important step in the successful implementation of any Six Sigma initiative is the identification of the true problem
Identify an improvement opportunity that is linked to the business performance metrics
Identify the gaps between current performance and customer expectations
Define the problem, the improvement objectives and the scope of the project
Identify the financial benefits
Ensure that the resources (time, people, money) needed for the project are in place
Define Phase Tools
High Level Process Map
Helps define the scope of the project
Identifies the inputs from the Suppliers and the outputs to the Customers
A scoping tool used to refine the problem statement
A tool used to understand , prioritize and mitigate risks to the completion of the project.
A document that is used to define an improvement project
The Measure Phase
Critical measures that are necessary to evaluate the success of the project are identified and determined
Determine data type and method for data collection
Validate the measurement system
Determine the statistical baseline performance
Evaluate current process stability and capability
Identify and prioritize the areas of opportunity in the process for analyze and improvement phases
Measure Phase Tools
Current State Process Mapping
A set of tools used to help people see the process
A set of tools used to identify potential causes driving variation in the “Output”
Stability – Control Charts
A graph that is used to monitor, control and improve processes over time
A set of tools used to understand process performance
MSA: Measurement System Analysis
A statistical tool used to determine if a measurement system is “capable” of differentiating process variation.
The Analyze Phase
Identification of the critical few factors (X’s) that are driving
the variation in the process
Determine the root causes of the problem that needs improvement
Determine how to eliminate the gap between existing performance and the desired level of performance.
Determine which of various process improvement scenarios will have the best net benefit impact to the company.
The Improve Phase
Implementing Solutions and Assessing Benefits
Develop an Experimental plan and Test Potential Solutions
Validate Potential Improvement by Pilot Studies
Correct/Re-Evaluate Potential Solution
Select the Best Solution
Mistake Proof Final Solution
Design an Implementation Plan
Improve Phase Tools
Final State Process Mapping
A set of tools used to help people see the improved process
A tool used to determine who is responsible and accountable for various aspects of the improved processes.
Organizing the workplace for maximum performance
Action Plan and Documentation
Implementation Action Plan with dates and assignments
Processes and Procedures
The Control Phase
An impeccably designed control system is crucial and the effectiveness of this system must be continually measured, challenged and revisited.
Develop a control plan
Implement new process training
Ensure new procedures are ingrained into normal operations.
Share and institutionalize the knowledge gained
Transfer of ownership and knowledge to process owner
Communicate the success stories
Celebrate the success!
Monitor the System
