I & C - Improve & Control 6.4 Improve.ppt 6.5 Control.ppt Evans Chapter 6&7, George Chapter 7,9&11 Final Exam Question Types The Exam will consist of the following components: True/False and Multiple- Choice Section (30-50%); Problems (about 50-70%). True/False and Multiple-Choice questions will be based on your understanding of the material covered in the presentations (mentioned above). See the Detailed Study Tips in this Study Guide (in the following Section) for each presentation. Problems will be based on the tools/techniques listed in this Study Guide (See the last section of the Study Guide on Additional PRACTICE PROBLEMS). Problems that we have done in class are obviously also important. Problems you may be required to complete for which formulas will not be provided include: Chi Square, Kappa, Pugh Matrix, FMEA, Cp, Cpk, Value Stream Calculations (including Little’s Law), and odd to probability calculations. 1 Detailed Study Guide 1) Introduction to Six Sigma a) What are the five phases of Six-Sigma methodology? i) Which phase deals with project scoping and evaluating project scope creep? ii) Which phase assesses resource requirements for the six-sigma project? iii) Which phase develops the complete project plan? iv) Which phase creates the value stream map of the current process to be improved? v) Which phase identifies tools for collecting and analyzing process performance information? vi) Which phase validates the benefits (operational and financial) of the six-sigma project? vii)What are the key outcomes of the ANALYZE phase? b) What are some key process performance metrics that are improved by a typical six-sigma project? i) How does Little’s law help in computing the process flow (cycle) time? c) What is the process through which the accuracy of measurement techniques for measuring the process performance is ensured? d) Which approach compresses DMAIC approach into a short, focused business process improvement event? e) Be able to calculate process capability measures: i) Fraction of Output Within Product Specifications ii) Process Capability Indices Cpk and Cp iii) Six sigma process capability (S-sigma level) 2) D – Define a) What factors should be considered when selecting Six Sigma projects? Ans. Impacts on customers and organizational effectiveness Probability of success Impact on employees Fit to strategy and competitive advantage Financial return, as measured by costs associated with quality and process performance, and impacts on revenues and market share b) What are the five steps of creating Affinity Diagrams?b) What are the five steps of creating Affinity Diagrams?...
