The member will learn the steps involved in the Measure phase
- The Measure phase is the second phase…of a Six Sigma project.…It is the M in DMAIC.…Let's start with a basic question.…Why bother doing the Measure phase?…What is the purpose?…The Measure phase is to measure the size and scope…of the problem or performance gap.…How big, how bad, how widespread it is.…Say you are the owner of a pizza chain…of 10 restaurants in the local area,…and your sales have been declining over the past year.…Initial analysis of the year's complaint data…shows that 85% of complaints were related to pizza crust.…
So Where would you focus your project?…Pizza crust, of course.…Remember in Six Sigma we use the equation…y is the function of x, which is y equals f of x.…In this project, the y is the pizza crust.…Wouldn't you want to know how big and bad…the pizza crust problem is?…And wouldn't you want to know how widespread it is?…For example, is pizza crust problem…equally bad across all 10 restaurants?…Are some worse than others?…Or is it limited to just one restaurant?…That is what the Measure phase does, it measures the y.…
