    I’m the project manager for a new source to pay implementation and I want to use this as a qualifying project for a certification. I’m a yellow belt and am familiar with lean six sigma but am having trouble with the process improvements being not just a direct result of the new program.

    example: Supplier Qualification Time

    Our company used to qualify suppliers by searching through our ERP system, google, employee recommendations, etc. to find suppliers that could meet the need then call or email to find qualifications, compile all information into an excel sheet then gather all necessary documentation like NDA, w9, etc.

    With the new Source to Pay system, the technology can do all of that. I am the one implementing it and will write the process.

    Would this qualify for an ASQ type process?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    It sounds like you’re only doing the latter part of I, and then maybe C of DMAIC since the improvement was already chosen.  If you didn’t play a significant role in DMA, professional integrity should tell you that this isn’t enough, whether or not you can put together documentation that ASQ will accept.  It’s possible to turn IC into a level 2 DMAIC.  I’ve seen that done successfully.  After all, the outputs from DMA are the specifications for I and you can treat them as such.
