Six Sigma and Lean are business process improvement methodologies. Used together, and called Lean Six Sigma, they become a transformational strategy that enables a system of process control and process design that energizes your business. This course covers common performance metrics used in Six Sigma. It covers defects per unit, defects per million opportunities, the first time yield and rolled through yield, as well as looking at the cost of low quality, and inefficient cycle and takt times.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • identify the purpose of metrics in Six Sigma
    recognize characteristics of two approaches to measuring process performance
    calculate defects per unit (DPU)
    recognize examples of defect opportunities
    calculate defects per million opportunities (DPMO)
    calculate first time yield
  • calculate rolled throughput yield
    recognize the role of cost of poor quality as a performance metric
    match types of quality costs to corresponding examples
    recognize the role of cycle time as a performance metric
    calculate cycle time and takt time
