# Six Sigma: Define and Measure

## Martin Grunow, Holly Ott, TUMx

An introduction to the Six Sigma methodology and DMAIC cycle for process improvement with a focus on the Define and Measure phases, including basic statistics for understanding sampling plans and calculating process capability.

Understand the background and meaning of Six Sigma and the five steps of the DMAIC process improvement flow: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control. Discuss what "Quality" means and how to identify the Voice of the Customer.

You will learn how to set an improvement project goal, calculate process yield, and identify Critical to Quality parameters.

You will learn how to map a process and to use the necessary statistical techniques to establish the baseline performance of a process and to calculate the process capability.

To complement the lectures, we provide interactive exercises, which allow learners to see the statistics "in action." Learners then master the statistical concepts by completing practice problems. These are then reinforced using interactive case-studies, which illustrate the application of the statistics in quality improvement situations.

Upon successful completion of this program, learners will earn the TUM Lean and Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification, confirming mastery of Lean Six Sigma fundamentals to a Yellow Belt level. The material is based on the American Society of Quality (www.asq.org) Body of Knowledge up to a Green Belt Level. The Professional Certificate is designed as preparation for a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt exam.

### What will you learn

• To understand the background and meaning of the Six Sigma methodology and the role of the DMAIC process improvement cycle.
• To identify the Voice of the Customer and translate into Critical to Quality parameters.
• To understand the concept of random variables, probability mass fucntions and probability density functions.
• To calculate probabilities using the Normal distribution.
• To understand how the Central Limit Theorem applies to sampling and how to set up sampling plans.
• To understand the importance of a Measurement System Analysis in a Six Sigma project.
• To calculate Process Yield and Process Capability.
• To perform a risk assessement using a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis.
• How to apply the Define and Measure phases of the DMAIC cycle in your work or research, to identify problems and quantitatively assess the impact of process changes using statistical analysis.
