    Hello Everyone,
    In my project, the brainstorming session has ended up in 140 metrics for the team. Going by Vital few vs trivial many, I suggested QFD exercise. does anyone have a metric priortisation tool /template which i can use to influence the team’s opinion & restrict metrics to 10.
    Regards

    Great post, what type of metrics have you collected?

    If you apply either a prioritisation technique (e.g. ranking), or just go for what the team feels to be the most vital effects in order to reduce the number of metrics you have, then you run the risk of intentionally ignoring a factor which may be the solution. 
    Presumably you are doing this 6S project because you do not yet know the answer to your problem?
    Before you take a huge leap of faith in your ability to detect solutions randomly, then I would suggest that you collect sufficient data to enable an informed decision to be made as to which metrics can safely be ignored.  Yes it can be expensive, but so can taking the wrong decision early in a project.
    Just my half-penny’s worth.

    Coming up with 140 metrics indicates that you have not reviewed the consequence of the metrics.
    Of the 140 which will tell you a significant output of the Big Y you are searching for.
    I’d suggest you perform a series of regression analysis with many of those metrics and find which ones are significant. Discard the rest.
