oke-width: 0px; “> QSO 620: Six Sigma Project Plan Guidelines and Grading Guide
Overview
The final project for this course is the creation of a detailed Six Sigma Project Plan to improve an existing process at an organization of the student’s choice, such
as his or her workplace. Students will use the knowledge that they have gained in this course, coupled with their previous knowledge, to create a 10-12 page
paper. The Six Sigma Paper Project should be written in the student’s own words and include his/her own critical analysis. The Six Sigma Project represents an
authentic demonstration of competency because it will grant students hands-on experience with implementation of DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-ImproveControl) methodology. The project is divided in to 8 milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure
quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules One, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine.
Main Elements
The Six Sigma Paper Project should contain the following elements:
Cover page
Abstract (executive summary)
Table of contents
Company background
o History of the company
o Development of the company
o Growth of the company
Eight project components
o Problem statement
o Affinity diagram and interrelationship digraph
o Define phase
o Repeatability and reproducibility
o Statistical process control
o Measure phase
o Analyze phase
o Improve and Control phases
References
Appendices
The paper project should be 10 to 12 pages in length, using 12-point Times New Roman Font with 1.5 line spacing.
Format
Milestone One: Six Sigma Problem Statement
In 1-3, you will submit a Six Sigma Problem Statement. You should select a process at a business of your choice that needs improvement. Submit the 2-3 page
Six Sigma Problem Statement to your instructor. This milestone will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
Milestone Two: The Define Phase
In 3-4, you will submit two items: a Project Scope Statement and an SIPOC. The Project Scope Statement should be 2-3 pages in length and relate to the main
problem that you identified in 1-3. This milestone will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
Milestone Three: Repeatability and Reproducibility
In 4-4, you will submit a Repeatability and Reproducibility of the Measurement System Report. The report should be 200-400 words in length and address the
following issues: What data must you collect? Who will collect the data? How do you trust that the data is accurate? This milestone will be graded using the Final
Project Rubric.
Milestone Four: The Measure Phase
In 5-3, you will set values and calculate them for the process. You should set the following values process target (τ), upper specification (U), and lower
specification (L). Then take appropriate samples to estimate the process mean (µ) and the process standard deviation (σ).
Calculate the following for your process:
Defectives per Million Opportunities (DPMO)
Yield
Process capability ratio (Cp)
Process capability index (Cpk)
You should submit the values to your instructor. This milestone will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
Milestone Five: The Analyze Phase
In 6-4, you will submit the Root Cause of the Problem you are trying to solve. Use Minitab® and/or a cause-and-effect diagram to format your submission.
Identify the root cause of the problem you are trying to solve and construct a main effects plot, if applicable. This milestone will be graded using the Final Project
Rubric.
Milestone Six: Statistical Process Control
In 7-3, you will submit a Control Chart. Using the process that you chose in 1-3, identify the type of data (variable or attribute) you have collected for the outputs
of interest. The format of the Control Chart should be appropriate for your data, based on the knowledge that you gained from the Module Six lecture. This
milestone will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
Milestone Seven: The Improve and Control Phases
In 8-3, you will submit a Plan to Improve the Process by eliminating the root cause. The plan should include an estimate of the time and cost involved, the
potential risks during the improvement process, and risk responses. This milestone will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
Course Project: Submit for Grading
In 9-5, you will submit your Six Sigma Final Project. It should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the main elements of the final product. It should
reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. This milestone will be graded using the Final Product Rubric.
