Meet Larry.

Larry is a golfer.

His play is,

shall we say,

erratic?

He wants to play

more consistently.

### 6-Sigma Example - Measure Phase

Larry’s Golf Game

• What is the output of Larry’s game?

Specification: Larry wants to shoot between 80 and 100 this season, with a target average score of 90.

### 6-Sigma Example - Measure Phase

Cpk = -0.05 !!!

• What is his process

capability?

• How does this relate to his ZLT (Long Term) and ZST (Short Term)?

• ZLT = (Cpk x 3) = -0.15 s Process

• ZST = (Cp x 3) = 5.64 s Process*

*(Best Process Cp - Sources of Variation Eliminated)

• Goal: Reduce the variation and move the average in Larry’s game.

Cp = 1.88

• This means:

• Just by improving his control, Larry can achieve a 5.5 sigma game.

• If he wants a 6 sigma game he will also have to improve his skills.

### 6-Sigma Example - Analyze Phase

Let’s figure out what is causing the variation in his putting game. . .

What did Larry do

differently during

this time frame?

### 6-Sigma Example - Analyze Phase

If he gave up drinking, does the number of drinks directly affect his putting?

### 6-Sigma Example - Analyze Phase

Conclusions

• Larry should putt, or drink, but not both!

• If Larry gives up drinking while golfing he will have addressed 87.2% of the variation in his putting game.

• By bringing his putting game under control he will achieve a 5-sigma game.

• To achieve a 6-sigma game we will have to do further investigations.

• Last time we determined drinks was a significant X.

• What other sources also drive the Putting Score?

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

In order to improve his game above the 5-sigma level he has to improve his skills.

• What skills does he need to improve?

• After talking with Larry and the Golf Pro we

• have concluded that there are three areas

• that would most likely improve his putting

• game. They are the putter type, stance

• and grip during putting.

• The Golf Pro wants to sell him the latest

• high tech/high \$\$ putter (Big Bubba).

• What does Larry have to do?

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

• Larry was not sure, so he consulted with his trustworthy Black Belt, who uses data to help make decisions.

• They then set up a Designed Set of Experiments with the following settings:

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

This is the Experiment Matrix that they decided to run!

This is a 23 DOE, which has eight conditions to test.

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

This is the Experiment Matrix after we randomized

the order that they will run!

Randomization is done to detect

the effect of other non-controlled variables.

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

We ran the experiments and these are the results.

The Closed Stance with the Interlocked Grip gives Larry the Lowest Score!

(Verified statistically.)

Stance and Grip are significant factors.

(Verified statistically.)

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

DOE Conclusions

• The high \$\$ putter made no difference!!

• The interaction between Closed Stance and Interlocked Grip gives Larry the lowest score!

• Just using the interlocked grip or closed stance by themselves will not achieve the lowest putting score.

6-Sigma Example - Improve Phase

So, What is Larry’s Improvement Plan?

• Give up drinking . . . on the golf course!!

• Continue to use “Old Reliable” putter, since the DOE showed that the “Big Bubba” made no difference.

• Always use an interlocking grip and a closed stance when he putts.

• Implement these improvements and collect some data! Play some golf!

### 6-Sigma Example - Improve Review

Remember Larry’s Improve “Plan” . . .

• Give up drinking . . . on the golf course!!

• Use “Old Reliable” putter!!

• Always use an interlocking grip and a closed stance when he putts!!

. . . and the Results

From Measure:

Zlt = -0.15DPMO = 820,000

Zst = 5.64

From Improve:

Zlt = 4.23DPMO = 12

6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

Larry Needs a Control Plan

• What’s a good plan to insure that Larry sustains the improvements he has made?

• Are there risks that could cause Larry to lose his improvement?

• If so, how should Larry address those risks associated with changing his golf game?

• Can Larry come up with a realistic drinking objective and maintain his improvement?

6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

So, What is Larry’s Control Plan?

Mistake - proofing

• Alternate drinking plan

• Leave wallet in car - only take enough \$ for 1 beer

• Lock and key on partners’ beer coolers

• Unlimited supply of “Near Beer” in Red Dog bottles (shhh - Don’t tell Larry)

• Put a Label on “Old Reliable” putter where he always sees it when putting

• “Interlock grip, close stance”

### 6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

More of Larry’s Control Plan

• SPC Control Chart

• Use the mean +/- 3 sigma limits as calculated from the Improve Phase data

• Continue Data Collection on Vital X’s

• Larry to track drinks per round

Okay, he’s got a plan.

Is there any risk associated with it?

### 6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

Risk Assessment

• Identify the risk elements (schedule, cost, technical)

• Assign ratings (high (3), med(2), low(1))

• Prioritize elements (probability & impact)

• Identify Risk Abatement plans

• Incorporate into Larry’s Control plan

Giving up drinking is a risk!

Need an Abatement Plan

### 6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

Abatement Planning

If he drinks moderately,

can he maintain an improvement?

What happened here?

Let’s look at the data!

### 6-Sigma Example - Control Phase

Does Larry’s Control Plan Work?

• How did Larry get four drinks?

• Yes!

• Is there an Abatement Plan?

• Yes!

• Then implement the Abatement Plan immediately.
