Select a complex repetitive process from your personal life or work (could be the same as in Assignment 1). 

[Points 10]

 You may use the same process as in the Week 1 assignment, but it must be one that is performed many times in a day, a week or a month.

 

 

Use Excel® to calculate the defined process metrics including variation and process capability. 

[Points 10]

The requirement is that you identify and calculate 4 to 6 metrics for your process that were not identified in the Week 1 assignment and at least two of them concern the variation and process capability of your process.

 

 

Use Microsoft® Excel® and PowerPoint® to develop and display a control chart for the process.

[Points 10]

This requirement must use actual collected data for the process selected.  If that is not possible then fictional data may be used BUT you must show why and how the data is created using reasonable assumptions of the process activity.

 

 

Evaluate the control chart and processed metrics using Statistical Process Control (SPC) methods. 

[Points 10]

In addition to lessons from the reading you might find this from the American Society for Quality interesting = http://asq.org/learn-about-quality/data-collection-analysis-tools/overview/control-chart.html

 

 

Evaluate whether the process could benefit from the use of Six Sigma tools.

[Points 10]

In addition to lessons from the reading you might find this from the Six Sigma Online interesting - http://www.sixsigmaonline.org/six-sigma-training-certification-information/why-six-sigma-projects-should-be-used/

 

 

Develop a 525-word executive summary describing the Statistical Process Control project (including the control chart with SPC).

[Points 15]

The objective of the summary is to assume that I’m your supervisor and you want to show me that your data collection an analysis of the selected process is valid for making process design and improvement decisions.
