    It should be used at design phase but should be reviewed and modified during development phase

    The term Black Belt refers to project leaders, skilled in the use of statistical methods and interpersonal communication, and dedicated to using Six Sigma methods to ensure customer satisfaction.
    The term Black Belt has its roots in the exotic realm of martial arts. Like a person skilled in the Oriental sport of karate, the Six Sigma Black Belt is self-assured and knowledgeable, the result of intensive training and real-world experience. The Six Sigma Black Belt is disciplined, purposeful, and decisive, able to lead highly focused efforts aimed at improving a company’s bottom line.

    Timmy,
    This is a very interesting question. I think it can be approached in a few different ways. First – if the supplier is sampling less than 100% of the parts AND if the % of defectives is significantly high, then it may not be necessary to sample more parts. The reason being, there would already be significant opportunity for improvement. On the other hand if the % of defectives is acceptably low, then the question is what is the sampling strategy. I would contend that changing the sampling strategy a few times would be a good idea to validate there is no measurement bias.
    Second way of looking at it is, that complementary sampling strategy where the parts are received, may help expose issues with inspection at the suppliers end.
    A third perspective would be to verify is the inspection effective enough? If it is not, you may actually want to focus on improved inspection as opposed to increased coverage.

    The clarity of the SOX goals are the same level as saying “You should be in compliance”..Not clear enough. Individual managements are left to determine what it means to provide a management attestation of effectiveness of internal controls. The challenge is for the management to come up with an objective definition of what is effective and what is not. Most organizations are adopting a level of materialiity that provides good financial coverage as a basis for deciding their project strategy. There is a significant opportunity to apply six sigma techniques in determining the scope of the project. Beyond that, as someone pointed out, methods for evaluating controls are lacking operational definitions, Gage R&R tests, etc. which makes the result of such an exercise questionable.
    That said, the tight timeline and broad coverage make it nearly impossible for any large organization to go the six sigma route. I believe that over the next 2-4 years, we will hear more about how certain companies used six sigma to improve the efficiency of their controls using six sigma

    Sorry guys for not responding for last 2 weeks. We had our formal CMM-2 assessment and I am happy to tell that we were assessed at level 2 on friday. Wew!! what a journey,,, This is a great relief as a member of SEPG and a major achievement.
    John; yes, we do have a functional but not so old SQA group and we do have regular project audits for process compliance. Your suggestion is a good one and we are now talking about adopting it going forward to measure process adoption. Our SQA audits on projects focus on KPAs and NCRs always correspond to one or more common features.
    We will most probebly use # common features in NCRS vs total Common features used in the audit as a measure of our DPMOs. I hope this is a better indicator of adoption. Atleast it will help us keep audited projects well in shape for our level 3 sample.

    Even if CMM does not tell you how to satisfy it’s requirements, it generally tends to be deliverable based in actual implementation. Your process and it’s deliverables should be able to satisfy each key feature (under committment, ability, measurement, activities and verification) of each KPA. Some deliverables will be project specific and others will be more towards policy of the organization.
    Just to take an example of Req mgmt. Your processΒ may require a defined set of requirements in a defined template for each project. You will also need a policy that guides RM. You will then need a defined meathodΒ for change control, a way of measuring requirements and a way of verifying RM activities. All this and you still have mot satisfied all key features.

    Thanks you for your response.
    I looked at the article and it deals with Phase ContainmentΒ  or defects per unit (FP or KLOC). This is good for measuring process effectiveness but I am looking more from a process adoption point of view. This will definetly be our next step but at this point we are too new into the process to measure it’s effectiveness.
    What we want at this point is a way to measure how the process itself is being adoptes across the organization. We have a standard , defined process and teams are supposed to adopt it into their life cycles. Some are doing a good job in adopting and others are not. But our visibility into this adoption is very subjective at this point. Our hope is to develop our current model of DPMOs into something that can be used succesfully to measute the adoption. And for that we are lookig to see if there is any benchmark we can use as a goal for us.

    I have used both softwares and frankly both of them have pretty much the same capabilities. Minitab UI is much simpler to use than JMP, but JMP UI has some fairly sophisticated capabilities which may be useful as your organization matures. I preferred Minitab as a beginner but now tend to like JMP better. You may contact me directly if you need further details

    Destructive Attribute Test- sounds interesting. Could you please describe in some more details? Is there any way in which you can modify the test so you get ‘variable’ results instead of a Yes/No?

    Just a thought…a question actually:
    Can we use the Stability Study from AIAG MSA manual to decide when to calibrate an instrument – Condition based calibration instead of fixed interval?

    I believe the third edititon of MSA manual from AIAGΒ discusses this issue in detail. Has anyone had a look?

    Unfortunately there is no Rule of Thumb for accepting linearity. Also you should not look only at the slope of the regression line. For the regression line to be meaningful, goodness of fit also should be high. Again, no ruleΒ to decide how high is good enough. For linearity, we normally take parts throughout the range of the instrument. Which tolerance (or process variation) should you consider?
