You may argue that what’s the big deal if my existing car doesn’t fit into the garage, I will rebuild the garage that can fit my bigger car.
You can always do it with garage but not with customer’s specifications as you can’t dictate it or simply customer won’t change his processes to fit your defective products. The only way is to improve your existing process or else lose your business to your competitors.
We can easily understand the concept of six-sigma using the analogy of parking a car into the garage and if you want to understand it more seriously, just imagine that you are entering a tunnel (instead of garage) at the speed of 150-200 Km/Hr!
When ever a car is bigger than the garage, it’s not possible to enter the garage. Take another car whose width is slightly less than the width of the car. This time it is possible to enter the garage but we will get frequent scratches unless you are an expert driver! Take a third car whose width is just half of the width of the garage , it’s is now possible for me to enter the garage even if I am drunk.
Car width represents the “current process capability“
Garage width represents the “Customer’s specifications“
We should remember that
“We need to buy a car according to the dimensions of the garage”
“We need to change our manufacturing processes to meet the customer’s specification”
It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to this website. This is not just another website on six-sigma as our USP is to make you learn all six-sigma concepts using figures and diagrams. During last 7-8 years we developed our own way of learning applied statistics with the help of diagrams and figures. During this journey we also found that each statistical topic always have some connections with other topics and we can’t study any topic in silos.
We understand that there are many people who want to learn six-sigma but are unable to do it because of the statistics involved. Our website would help all those six-sigma aspirants to understand the statistical concepts with the help of figures and diagrams. This would be augmented by the industry related example. Hence this would be an ideal website if you wish to appear for green/black belt exam from a reputed institute.
Another major issue during applying six-sigma is the “use of right tool at the right place”. Hence our focus would not only to understand the concepts behind any statistical tools but also about selecting an appropriate tool for a given situation.
This website will start posting the six sigma topics (mainly statistical portion) from first week of July, 2016. Hence get registered as soon as possible. The way we are planning to run the course is by posting one topic every week so that we can understand it well before taking subsequent topic. Each topic will be followed by examples so that one can understand not only the concepts but also the use of appropriate tools.
We also understand that many of you won’t be having access to the six-sigma software, so we will be using excel sheet sheet in resolving statistical problems. We are emphasizing on excel sheet as it is available to all. Hope you won’t be having excuse of not learning six-sigma because of non-availability of the software.
