6 US has lost 3.3 million manufacturing jobs during March 1998-2006 (before current recession) Supply chains have lowered inventories by $4.6 trillion dollars Inquiries on your computer and phone accounts are often answered by outside call centers Your tax return is completed in India Your Jet Blue reservation is taken by Betty in her house coat and slippers in Salt Lake City Dad’s X-rays are read overseas at 2:00 a.m. while you are sleeping US share of scientific papers in the Physical Review Letters fell from 61% in 1983 to 29% in 2003 Mama-papa stores are vanishing from neighborhoods at an exponential rate. 1/3 of the US population shop in the Wal-Mart every week (Wal-Mart has 60,000 suppliers) Downstream customers and retailers are placing increasing focus on what goes upstream: how things are made, framed, packaged, transported, displayed and sold worldwide (Life Cycle Thinking) “We need to be telling our kids to hurry up and eat and get to their homework - there are kids in China and India who are starving for our jobs” - Tom Friedman, The World is Flat Have you noticed ?…
Competitive Realities of Our Time The Global Business Climate Fierce, global competition Accelerating pace of change New technologies Increasing customer demands - performance, quality, price, “solutions, not products,”... Quality & Performance: Higher expectations Cost: Only low cost providers will survive Speed: Short product life cycles, “e-business” mindset 6

6 “Eighty-five percent of the reasons for failure to meet customer expectations are related to deficiencies in systems and process… rather than the employee. The role of management is to change the process rather than badgering individuals to do better.” In other words, look for the root causes, not the “root who.” Why Six Sigma? – Dr Deming
6 Six sigma business improvement starts with SIPOC S uppliers I nputs (Business) P rocess (Process) O utputs (Critical) C ustomer (Requirements) Defects Variation in the output from what the customer wants causes defects. Root cause analysis leads to permanent elimination of defects USL LSL CCR Output * *
6 All processes have variability All variability has causes Typically only a few causes are significant To the degree that those causes can be understood - they can be controlled Designs must be robust to the effects of the process variation This is true for products, processes, services, information transfer, everything......is that uncontrolled variation is the enemy The basic Six Sigma premise...
6 Six Sigma: Philosophy The Motorola School: (Show me the “Defect”) Relentless Defect Elimination –Find and Remove Existing Defects –Prevent New Defects The GE School: (Show me the “$$$”) Relentless Pursuit of Financial Opportunities –Identify High Impact Projects –Use Six Sigma Methodology to Optimize the Process –Visible Bottom Line Impact
6 Defects & yield depend on –Spec width (design requirement) –Standard deviation (process variation) i.e., on the Sigma Level Reduce defects and improve yields by reducing process variation, i.e., by reducing std deviation and thereby raising the Sigma Level Reducing Defects and Improving Yield Target LSL Defects = Area > USL Defects = Area < LSL USL

6 The Cost of Variation – Taguchi Loss Function Where LSL= lower spec limit Nom= target USL= upper spec limit Traditional View Cost LSL Nom USL Acceptable Correct View Cost LSL USL Nom CTQ Cost of Poor Quality – COPQ - consists of those costs which are generated as a result of producing defective material. COPQ is a financial measure of the user or customer’s dissatisfaction with a product’s performance as it deviates from a target value. $ COPQ = k (CTQ – Target) 2

6 The Focus of Six Sigma: Fix Processes, Not Products Y Output Dep Variable Effect Symptom Monitor x 1, x 2, …, x n Inputs Indep Variables Root Causes Problems Fix & Control Output Y= f (Process Variables x 1, x 2, …, x n ) Many quality approaches focus on inspecting and fixing outputs (Y’s, e.g., products) Six Sigma focuses on fixing and controlling key process variables (x’s) which cause output defects

6 Cost Of Poor Quality over the product life cycle (from lab to customer) Most current six sigma effort is here R&D/ Discovery, Pre- clinical Pilot plant/ Clinical I-III Production/ Commercialization Customer Defects are: Difficult to see/predict Easy to fix Easy to see Costly to fix May lose customers We ought to do here We need a paradigm shift in how we do things: from reactive to predictive mode.

D-M-A-I-C has been around for over 10 years, but…
6 Underlying Truism: Knowing what the customer needs We don't know what we don't know, we can't act on what we don't know, we won't know until we search, we won't search for what we don't question, we won't question what we don't measure, and hence we just don't know.
6 Customer Service 101: Know what is “good” to your customer … (VOC) Ichiro Ishikawa: “When I ask the designer what is a good car, what is a good refrigerator and what is a good synthetic fiber, most of them cannot answer. It is obvious they cannot produce good products. You simply cannot design a good product or service if you do not know what “good” means to the customer. The designer must create a map that moves the world of customer to the world of the designer”

6 Lean Methodology Specify Value Identify the Value Stream Pull Flow Perfection Reference: Lean Thinking, J. Womak and D. Jones, 1996 A Simple, Intuitive Approach!! Focus on Value from the eyes of the customer (VA and NVA activities) Eliminate waste (Muda) Reduce cycle time / increase speed In lean design – create flow and value for the customer / minimize waste
6 Value Add vs. Non-Value Add Type of Process StepDefinitionAction Value Add (VA)Transforms or shapes a product/service which is eventually sold to a customer Identify Non-Value Add (NVA)Take time, resources, or space but do not add value to the product or service Eliminate or redesign Business Value Add (BVA)Not seen as valuable by the customer, but required in order to complete the process Remediate or Continuously improve

6 Project Selection Guideline New Process/ Business/Product/Service? Improve Process/ Business/ Product/ Service by reducing standard deviation and shifting the mean? Reduce Waste in Process/Business/Product/Service? No Just do it! DFSS DMAIC Lean Yes Needs redesign because of reaching entitlement? Yes No
6 Which Problem Solving Method? – Another Look Lean Unacceptable time to get things done Large amounts of waste/wasted effort High, unexplained variation in key metrics Lack of optimal settings for process X’s DMAIC A current design that cannot achieve desired result No current design at all (clean sheet) DFSS If You Are Experiencing...
