  3. Six Sigma:Quality Design for Success

  4. Q.What is quality? Design for Success

  5. What is Six Sigma... • Six Sigma is a business concept that answers customers’ demand for high quality and defect-free business processes. • Six Sigma was born when Motorola published its Six Sigma quality program in 1987. • Six Sigma is a unified approach to process excellence. • Six Sigma has transformed some of the most successful companies in the world (Motorola, Allied Signal, GE). • Six Sigma is a target (Fewer than 3.4 defects or errors per million opportunities – 99.99966 perfection). • Six Sigma is an approach to aiming at that target by changing the culture of a company. It involves everyone in the company. Design for Success

  6. What is Six Sigma... • Six Sigma can be used to design in excellence and then make continuous improvements. • Six Sigma is used to bring new products and services to market (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Validate) by methodically laying everything out first. • Six Sigma identifies problems in a process, sets up projects within the process, evaluates the process and works through the projects (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) to improve the process. • Six Sigma aims to raise customer satisfaction by reducing the number of defects in a process, thereby raising the Sigma rating. • Six Sigma is a culture which permeates a company in the desire of all staff to achieve targets, increase customer satisfaction, lower costs and improve profitability.

Perfection 99.7% 54,000 2 5 1,350 10,000 54,000 4.3 99.9% 4,000 1 2 500 3,000 4,000 4.6 99.99966% 1 every 25 years 1 second every16 years 1 in 10 years atall U.S. airports 1 in 20 years 10 1 6 • Incorrect drug prescriptions each year • Unsafe drinking water; hours per month • Missed landings each day at London’s Heathrow airport • Incorrect surgical operations per week • Newborn babies dropped by doctors and nurses each year • Lost mail per hour Sigma Level Design for Success

  9. Q.Can you give an example of something that didn’t represent quality? Design for Success

  10. Q.Can you describe something of high quality? Design for Success

  11. Six Sigma Precepts • Customer and process focused • Focus is on the things that matter • Data driven decisions • Act on fact • Reduced variation in process performance • Variation is the enemy • Reduction in cycle time • Faster is usually better • Prevention of defects • Proactive not reactive • A new perspective of performance • 99% is not good enough Design for Success

  12. Core Principles of Six Sigma • Customer satisfaction • Profit improvement • Project-by-Project improvements • Prioritization of improvements • Process-driven approach to managing the business • DMADV / DMAIC • Near Perfection as a goal of performance • Teamwork draws on experience, knowledge and dedication • Recognition - expression of respect for employee contribution Design for Success

  13. The Six Sigma Difference • Assigns and trains improvement experts • Involves all/most organizational members • Targets significant and lasting improvements • Requires the use of proven statistical tools • Attacks the root cause of problems • Focuses on improvements that have financial impact • Provides a single measure to compare disparate processes • Pushes processes to achieve near-perfect quality levels • Six Sigma is a permanent long-term program Design for Success

  24. DMAIC • Define • What is important? • Measure • How are we doing? • Analyze • What is wrong? • Improve • Fix what’s wrong • Control • Ensure gains are maintained to guarantee performance Design for Success
