4 Six sigma project management 3 Six Sigma Project Management Version: 1.0 Author: Bizagi Process Modeler. Successful companies are always searching for new and better ways to do things. Some have found in the Six Sigma methodology, an excellent way to improve their processes. Six Sigma uses statistical tools to measure processes in terms of defects and variation, transforming them into opportunities for business growth. A company that uses Six Sigma is a company whose main priority is the customer s satisfaction. Six Sigma uses five phases (DMAIC) to improve the process: The first phase is Define, where a project is chosen and its goal, scope, and deliverables are established. The second phase is Measure where the current state of the process is measured. In the third phase, Analyze, the root causes of the problems and defects are determined. The fourth phase is to Improve the process, thus a solution is proposed. The last phase is to Control the performance of the process.

5 Six sigma project management 4 Implementing a conventional Six Sigma project is usually time-consuming whereby a lot of manual work is required and results are presented in an old fashioned way. With Bizagi s Six Sigma Project Management process, companies can perform their projects more effectively. Bizagi s Six Sigma Project Management guides you easily through the DMAIC phases, reduces the task assignment time by assigning activities to the appropriate person in the right time, improves the manner in which information is collected and the project is presented through complete case summaries data and ensures the information availability at all times. Objectives The process covers: Presenting the project information. Suggesting the deliverables for each DMAIC phases. Assigning the various project tasks to team members. Approving or requesting changes to the deliverables. Scope Bizagi s Six Sigma Project Management process is designed to implement and control a Six Sigma Project. It helps to meet the project s goals minimizing effort and resources. The Project Management also requests the necessary information to perform each step of the DMAIC cycle. Global Forms 1.

10 Six sigma project management 9 Process Elements Project Charter Six Sigma Project Management starts with the Project Charter task. It is performed by the Project Sponsor. The Sponsor is the person who owns the process or can allocate resources to the project. The Project Charter must be completed for each project, and should include the project justification, deliverables, project objectives, etc. Performers Sponsor Allocations Condition Case Creator The case creator must be the project sponsor Notify assignment Yes Forms 1.

12 Six sigma project management Name: Add Team Member Prototype: Forms behaviors The form contains a grid validation, it is necessary to include at least one member of the team. Actions Type On Enter On Exit Add the deliverables related to the phase Set the initial phase, Define Set the Actual Start Date Validate that the finish date is after the start date Validate that the finish date from each phase is after the start date of the phase Define In the first phase of a Six Sigma project: Define, the Six Sigma Team answers the question: What is wrong with the way things are?. The team defines the problem statement and describes the current state.

13 Six sigma project management 12 Six Sigma Project Management supports the team in many ways. The Template suggests some useful deliverables for the phase, reduces the approval time of them, and provides a more effective way of presenting the results through summary forms. Measure The second phase is Measure, whereby the Team defines the process and baseline of the current state. It is important that the team specifies the data required, and the way to collect it. Six Sigma Project Management suggests some deliverables that help to answer questions like How is the process working?, What is the variance impact on the customer? or Where are the causes of the problem? Diagram Phase Analyze In this phase, the team identifies the root causes of the problem and validates them. Six Sigma Project Management knows that it is necessary to focus on two things: Analysis of the data Analysis of the process For this reason, the Template proposes some deliverables such as Process Capability and Causes and Effect-diagrams for the analysis of the process. The analysis of the data requires the uses of statistical tools and techniques for example: Design of experiments and Correlation and regression analysis, which are proposed by the template also. Diagram Phase

14 Six sigma project management 13 Improve In the previous phases the team understood and validated the causes of variation and determined the state of the process. In the Improve phase the team gives a solution for the problem, defines the necessary human and technological resources to achieve the project goals and executes a pilot test. Diagram Phase Control In this phase, the team should focus on two things: Solution Implementation and Control Plan. The team needs to monitor the implementation plan based on the pilot test which was performed during the Improve phase. The Implementation must include the working instructions, training process and the Control Plan. Six Sigma Project Management shows all the significant information through the summary form where any member of the team can find all the information related to the project in order that control can be maintained easily and quickly. Diagram Phase Modify Project This task is performed when changes to the scope or objectives of the project are required. The process assigns the task to the Black Belt of the project who is the person who has the authority to make the changes.

Sponsor <SixSigmaProject.ProjectChapter.ProjectBl ackbelt.username> Good Day Abort Project When the Project is not linked with the organization s goals or is not clearly defined, it is not a Six Sigma Project and it is necessary to abort it. Performers Sponsor Allocations Condition Case Creator The project can be closed only by the case creator.

Six Sigma Project Management gives the possibility of distributing the minutes of these meetings on a formal basis.

19 Six sigma project management 18 Form Is the Project Finished? The gateway checks whether the project has finished, if not, it is very important to distribute the minutes of team s meeting to all parties involved. Gateways Yes: If the project is finished the process ends. No: If the projects is not finished the process goes to the Minutes event. Next Phase This gateway validates the next phase of the DMAIC to be performed or if the project needs some modification. Gateways Yes: If the phase ends correctly, the process continues to the next phase. Changes in project scope required: If the process needs some changes, the process continues to the Modify Project activity. It is performed by the Black Belt of the project.

20 Six sigma project management 19 Is The Project valid? If the Black Belt in mutual agreement with the team decides that the project is not a Six Sigma Project, then it has to be aborted. Gateways No: If the project is a Six Sigma Project, valid project, the process goes to the first phase of the DMAIC cycle, Define. Yes: If the project is not a valid project, the process continues with the Cancel Project activity. Can the project continue? Gates No: If, after modification, the project is still not valid, then it continues to the Cancel Activity. Next Phase: If the project is valid, the process continues to the next task to be performed.

21 Six sigma project management 20 Phase Version: 1.0 Author: Bizagi Process Modeler. Each phase of the DMAIC process is performed in the same way. In each phase it is necessary to establish the details deliverables which will be completed to finalize the phase.

22 Six sigma project management 21 Process Elements Set Phase Details The Six Sigma Process Management Process suggests the deliverables that are commonly completed in each phase. The person who performs this activity must select at least one deliverable, which can be modified, as necessary, by the user. Additional deliverables can be included if necessary.
