Learn how to develop a control plan for your Six Sigma projects. In this video, Dr. Richard Chua discusses the importance of Control plan and how it provides process owners with the means to control the process to maintain consistently high performance.
- Imagine driving a car on the highway…without knowing what the speed limit is.…Or worse yet, driving a car with no speedometer.…In either case, you will be clueless…as to when to speed up and when to slow down.…Hopefully, the drivers of your improved process…have the ability to control their process speed.…That's why the control plan is so important.…The control plan is the key output…of any Six Sigma project.…The control plan provides process owners and operators…with the means to control the process…so that it performs well, day in and day out.…
Let's start by focusing on developing a control plan.…Here's an example of a pizza restaurant…that has a crust problem.…Some are burnt and others are underdone.…A Six Sigma project team determined through DOE…that to get the perfect crust,…the oven temperature should be 425 degrees Fahrenheit…and the baking time 11.2 minutes.…Here's a partial example of a control plan…for ensuring that the pizza crust is done just right.…I recommend the column headings…to be written in plain language as shown here.…
Dr. Richard Chua builds upon his Six Sigma Foundations and Learning Minitab courses, and covers an array of topics, including measurement system analysis, descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, design of experiments, statistical process control, and more.
