Defects, Overproduction, Waiting, Non-Utilized Talent, Transportation, Inventory, Motion, and Extra-Processing are a list of the most common reasons for excess cycle time in a process. These are known as:
A workplace organization technique composed of 5 primary phases: Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain
A simple but effective method of analyzing and solving problems by asking “why” five times, or as many times as needed in order to move past symptoms and determine root cause.
Organizes a large amount of data according to their natural relationships.
Used in process mapping, this method shows multiple ways of achieving the same result.
A form of hypothesis that assumes there is a statistically significant difference between two or more data samples.
An alert system that can be visual or audible, facilitating quick response to any problems in the process or system.
Part of lean manufacturing
The third phase of the DMAIC process focuses on identifying the root cause (or causes) of a process problem.
5S Terminology – Please “Drag and Drop” the relevant Japanese term to it’s corresponding English term.
Set in Order
A form of hypothesis testing that determines if there is a significant difference in the means of several different groups.
A brainstorming and questioning technique that does two things: it identifies and challenges conventional thinking and eliminates obstacles to optimal solutions.
Data that establishes the current or initial conditions in a process improvement project, prior to the application of solutions.
The practice of making large lots of a particular item to gain economic efficiencies.
The second highest level of training for a Six Sigma practitioner. This role devotes 100% of their time to Six Sigma and focuses on the execution of specific Six Sigma process improvement projects.
A step in the process where your process is limited in the volume it can handle. It is often the result of specialization, task imbalance or other constraints.
A graphical view of a data set which involves a center box containing 50% of the data and “whiskers” which each represent 25% of the data.
A free-thinking group method for generating ideas to handle a challenging situation.
A broad statement that helps sell or justify a specific improvement opportunity to the senior leadership or stakeholders in an organization.
A structured brainstorming tool designed to assist an improvement team in listing potential causes of a specific effect.
The “center point” of a process distribution.
The practice of dramatically reducing or eliminating the time to change from one method or unit to another.
The measurement of the cycle time from the moment the last good part of the previous process is produced to the moment first good part of the subsequent process is produced.
A simple tally sheet used to systematically collect data on the frequency of an occurrence (e.g., the frequency of defects).
A hypothesis test that determines whether a statistically significant difference (aka variance) exists between two independent groups of discrete data, ruling out chance.
The Box Plot Graph is used to
There are two correct answers.
The Cpk for a process with an average of 100 and a standard deviation (within) of 2 with upper and lower specification limits of 114 and 94 would be?
Six Sigma refers to a process whose output has at least 95% of its data points within 6 standard deviations from the mean.
Continuous variables are measured, Discrete variables are counted.
A method utilized to streamline workflow in a manner that minimizes waste through the use of signals that trigger “flow” through each process step is known as?
As a standard for a process to be at the 6 Sigma quality level, it must have?
