If I eliminate one of the criteria and drop the matrix down to 14 criteria, how does this impact the scoring categories? What would the new numerical ranges be for the three scoring categories?

Thanks.

“Divide the sum of the products by the sum of the weighted scores (in this case, 45.4 / 16 = 2.8 ). This number is the total score” ]]>

Thank you Tej and all other members for giving valuable comments on the above topic.

I will use this matrix in our organisation. From the above I think we can conclude that:

DMAIC project cannot be done when solution is known.

DMAIC project can be done,when there is a problem,to get rid of it.To improve a process.

To better understand it, can you please elaborate on following two topics :

– why do you divide each weighting by 3 to calculate the weighted score ?

– why should the solution not involve a redesign of the process ? Is it not possible to always use the DMA(IC) method to understand and detail the business needs (AS-IS/TO-BE) and based on the outcome of the measure & analysis phase deside how to proceed ? ]]>
