Capability refers to an analysis that determines how well a process can deliver to customer requirements. Scorecards list the capability of key process and/or product requirements.
Project prioritization is one of the most important aspects of Lean Six Sigma. This C&E Matrix template can be used to prioritize projects based on quantitative evaluation.
Contingency Tables are used to evaluate relationships between two or more attribute or categorical factors. This Excel-based template provides formulas for expected values and chi-square values.
The Control Plan is a summary of all control activities for a process. It is intended to be used after the project is handed off to the process owner in order to sustain the gains of the Lean Six Sigma project. This...
The Data Collection Plan defines what type of data will be collected during a Six Sigma project. This template provides a framework for documenting the what, where and how much of your data collection efforts.
If it just isn't feasible to conduct a traditional MSA, then at the very least, these questions should be applied. You should document the answers to this checklist as part of your project documentation / Final...
A DOE, or Design of Experiment, is a test in which purposeful changes are made to the input variables in a process so that changes in the output can be observed. The DOE Outline provides a framework for students to...
A DOE, or Design of Experiment, is a test in which purposeful changes are made to the input variables in a process so that changes in the output can be observed. The DOE Plan is a document that students can use to plan...
Reports are important management tools for influencing future actions and documenting learning and accomplishments. The Final Report Template provides instructions for writing a clear and concise Lean Six Sigma project...
The Force Field analysis identifies the forces and factors that impact a solution, so that positives can be reinforced and negatives can be eliminated. This worksheet provides a framework for the development of a Force...
Hypothesis tests are used to determine whether the observed differences between two or more samples are due to random chance or true differences in the samples. Based on the type of data and the situation, there are...
Keep your Lean Six Sigma project and team on track with a clear and thorough project charter. Use this tool to define your project so that all team members and stakeholders understand what the project is and is not. A...
Project definition is an integral first step in any Lean or Lean Six Sigma project. The Lean Six Sigma Project Definition Worksheet is a best practice document used to scope and define a Lean Six Sigma project.
A team meeting should be handled as a process by itself. The templates in this document will help the student to appropriately manage the resources involved in the meeting and all the other inputs and desired output...
The Pareto Principle states that 80% of defects come from 20% of root causes. The Pareto Chart helps to identify those causes that contribute the most defects to a product or process. This template provides a structure...
A pilot program tests the final design under limited real world conditions to verify original design assumptions versus actual performance. The Pilot Charter is a document that students can use to plan the pilot to make...
The Potential Solution Analysis matrix summarizes potential solutions and prioritizes them based on their Solution Priority Number (SPN). The SPN rates a solution on its Ease, Permanence, Impact and Cost.
Prioritizing and selecting projects is an essential part of the Lean Six Sigma process. This template provides a format for quantitatively evaluating projects in order to select them. Company leaders and managers can...
The Process Capacity Table defines how much equipment is needed within a process. This template outlines a structure to capture this data. It provides a computational chart to calaculate process capability via machine...
The process design analysis template compares Current State versus Proposed Changes. This spreadsheet compares the number of operators, WIP, Lead Time, 5S Rating, Value Add, and PPM.
Tracking project deliverables is an important way to ensure a Lean Six Sigma project is on target. This worksheet lists the deliverables for the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control phases of a Lean Six Sigma...
The sample size is the size of a sample needed to estimate process parameters. This document will calculate the sample size needed for any project based on the type of hypothesis test required.
Given the number of units, opportunities for defects per unit, and number of defects, you can use this spreadsheet to calculate DPO,DPU, DPMO amd Sigma level with a 1.5 shift for Attribute data.
Enter any one of the following: Process Yield, DPMO, percent defective or Process Sigma level, and obtain the other three values.
A SIPOC is a type of process map that includes the identification of the basic elements of a process: Suppliers, Inputs, Process Steps, Outputs and Customers. This worksheet presents a format in which all information...
The Solution Selection Matrix evaluates solution ideas against specific criteria: ease of implementing, permanence of the solution, impact on performance and cost-benefit. This template provides a format for creating a...
The Stakeholder Analysis is a tool used to understand stakeholders' views and attitudes towards the change so that you can respond to them in the best possible way. This template includes a stakeholder analysis you...
Graphical analysis using Minitab is essential to any Lean Six Sigma project. This document provides a visual demonstration of which analysis tools to use, based on the desired outcome and the type of data being analyzed.
A work plan defines the major milestones of a Lean Six Sigma project. This template offers a timeline that can be used to keep the project on track and document estimated and actual data.
