Describe the process and break it into subprocesses. Determine measurement instrument variability. Collect and analyze data. Identify major components of variation, using statistical tools. List input variables associated with the major component of the variation. Screen out trivial variables by using brainstorming, screening experiments, or similar techniques. Conduct statistically designed experiments to identify critical input variables. Optimize the process with attention to critical variables, and determine realistic tolerances of input variables.

Figure 2-13 shows a flowchart that describes the use of various techniques deployed in the design of experiments. The Full Factorial technique, commonly used for most process improvement activities, requires selection of the key variables, the desired settings for the new process, and the amount of improvement desired. Once the experiment is designed, the experimental cells are randomized, and the data are collected and analyzed using a statistical software. Most experiments provide additional knowledge about the process and lead to convergence in solving the problem. Sometimes multiple experiments are required to arrive at a solution.

such as control charts, precontrol charts, and run charts are used to maintain the processes. The challenge, however, lies in keeping the Six Sigma initiative alive on a continual basis. One way to keep the Six Sigma initiative alive is to have the organization divide itself into functional territories, with
SIX SIGMA AN OVERVIEW
managers in each territory working only on improving their own functions. This solution, however, is sometimes detrimental to the organization as a whole. Such an organizational hierarchy can give managers a monopoly for controlling any changes to their departments or functions. This authority can lead to resistance to any outside interference and change, such as quality improvement projects. On the other hand, some organizations have too many rules (or written procedures), and any change in those rules must go through a bureaucratic process, which may take weeks or months. To lower such barriers, incentives to drive dramatic improvement or consequences for resistance must be clearly defined and communicated. Leadership must transform the organization s culture into one that embraces change rather than fights it. A mentor can help project managers find the right resources or address critical roadblocks. The mentor may direct the project manager to an informal leader whose support is critical for the project s success as well as find legitimate ways around constraints and roadblocks. For example, a minor change in the project plan might help bypass a daunting approval requirement.
CHALLENGES IN IMPLEMENTING SIX SIGMA
Sometimes, a company s leaders adopt the Six Sigma initiative without understanding the potential opportunities that can increase profitability. They basically treat it like another cannonball or another flavor of the month. While these companies have committed significant resources in training people for Black Belt and Green Belt certification, either the projects for the trained personnel to work on have not been identified, or the personnel have not been allowed to work on the projects because of other priorities in the company. At a large automotive original equipment manufacturer, the Six Sigma methodology is treated as a five-step problemsolving methodology, and management does not get involved. At another company, projects are already in progress before

the Six Sigma training. After the Six Sigma training, the projects are counted toward the Six Sigma success. At another company, a consulting company asked the project leader to fudge the numbers to make savings look better than they were. At an American Society for Quality section meeting, I was told that the company had just completed the Six Sigma training, but that it may need some help in project selection. These examples are all start-up problems with the Six Sigma methodology s implementation. At some companies, the challenge has been to sustain the rate of improvement and successes over the long haul. Problems have occurred because of misalignment of corporate strategies and ineffective performance management. The most significant cause of poor performance management is unavailability of the proper feedback at all levels, i.e., from the process all the way to the leadership. The current available measurements may be limited to sales reports, financial measures, and the performance of production processes. Several areas in the corporate world have been ignored. As discovered through the Six Sigma methodology at Motorola and GE, significant savings can be realized in service areas as well as in production. Therefore, performance measurements at key processes throughout the organization are crucial. Another weakness in some organizations, whether they are implementing Six Sigma or other similar methods, is the hesitancy of leaders to set goals for an aggressive rate of improvement. Aggressive goal setting is a critical characteristic of the Six Sigma methodology, as it demands innovation in each area, intellectual involvement of all employees, and dramatic improvement. Minor adjustments in production or management processes lead only to incremental improvement that is often hidden by the error levels in the corporate management system. To share the benefits of the improvement resulting from application of the Six Sigma methodology, the rate of improvement must be greater than the rate of inflation and measurement errors. With the changing corporate competitive environment, implementation of an ISO 9000 system at more than 500,000 companies, acceptance of Six Sigma methodology
