    I am wondering if anyone has knowledge of the diagnostic tools or frameworks for Six Sigma project selection. That is, how do you know where to do a project? I would appreciate feedback from anyone, especially if they have information about using the Balanced Scorecard or a Process Control System as tools for this purpose.

    Thank you

    hi blumenthal,

    did you see the section of isixsigma that deals with project selection. it’s decent, but i’d like more info just like you. it’s at https://www.isixsigma.com/me/project_selection/ in the methodologies section.

    I use a “family of variation” tree that begins with a heading that allows input of what the defect is and then has other areas for input i.e. Validate the measurement and possible families that could contribute to the defect. Those items that effect the customer the most are selected. I hope this helps.

    thank you for the replies. of course, it is crucial to only apply six sigma efforts where there is both a a real dollar and customer impact.

    i’m curious if anyone has anyone ever heard of the process control system as a tool for project selection? is this a proper application for such a tool?

    thanks

    You want bang for the buck! Don’t waste months on projects that will only save a few grand or do litle for customer satisfaction. In my case, if the project doesn’t save at least a million, I’m probably wasting my time. So the dollar amount saved is relative to the the opportunities in your organization. Pareto your projects based on cost, customer satisfaction, increasing market share, etc. Choose the projects that make the most sense and get to work. Common sense still is more valuable than any single tool you could use.

    Pugh matrices and FACM’s are some tools that can be used if your resources are low and you have to pick a few projects to do rather than doing them all.

    Good Luck!
