    Wow. That’s one heckofaquestion. You’re looking for the holy grail of six sigma on this discussion forum, and I would suggest reading some articles on this site as a way to build your knowledge and focus your questions. Try the Methodologies section and also the Culture Evolution section.

    Dear Sandrine,
    Trev’s reply to your mssg (15th) kind of says it all. But, I understand your position well. (been there). If you expect valuable advice around here you need to give sufficient inputs -like the kind of biz you are in, etc. If you are an engineer or statistician things will be relatively easy for you. (I am not)! I ‘d suggest the simple DMAIC method to get to understand the essence of six sigma.  If you need some basic/simple white papers on this you can mail me (at work) [email protected]  This site also offers very good material for learning the rope. But go slow – start from the basics.

    Thank YOU for the advice,but still I need some guidelines in regard to solve the following obstacles:
    *Working on too many improvements at the same time
    *not having someone accountable  for the problem
    * a lack of metrics
    *mixed future roles
    *lack of trained people
    *no accountability
    *lacking of process-based attitude
       Thank You all for any enlightenment,    Sandrine

    Working on too many improvements at the same time – who is saying this – how can you have too much improvement?
    not having someone accountable for the problem – Senior Management
    * a lack of metrics
    *mixed future roles
    *lack of trained people
    *no accountability
    *lacking of process-based attitude

    Very top level approach, your management MUST support every step:
     
    1 – find out where your waste and improvement opportunities are – short term from senior management, long term from everyone
    2 – collect data to verify the above
    3 – find out what the desired “future state” is
    4 – develop a plan to achieve the future state which includes responsibilities and accountabilities – who does what, and how do we know they are doing it correctly?
    5 – implement
     
    Please provide more detail so we can all help you.

    Sandrine, It is interesting that you are asking how to go
    about preparing a Six Sigma initiative in your
    organization. I found an excellent article in the
    magazine Printed Circuit Design and
    Manufacture (Oct issue) about implementing a
    Variation Reduction Initiative in Flextronics. The
    article is written by Mario Perez-Wilson who is
    one of the Six Sigma architects from Motorola. I
    checked their wbsite http://www.mpcps.com,
    very interesting! Anyway, the article is a two-part article you can
    find it at
    http://www.pcdandm.com/pcdmag/mag/current_
    issue.shtml
    in it, he describes the steps they took to
    implement their initiative. I recently chat with
    him, they are very open for help.
