Enhanced Individuals Control Chart with Process Capability Statement

By in ,

An enhanced individuals control chart methodology is available that can provide a process stability and predictive process capability statement in one chart is available through the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) business management system 30,000-foot-level reports.

Enhanced Individuals Control Chart with Process Capability Statement

Traditional individuals control charts only assesses whether a process is in-control or not.  With traditional methodologies, process capability statements relative to how processes are performing in relationship to specifications need to be a separate analysis.  These process-performance statements using a traditional approach are typically made using process capability indices that can be difficult to understand.  A 30,000-foot-level chart approach provides in one chart a process stability and a capability assessment from a high-level point of view in words that are easy to understand.

Traditional business scorecards such as a table of numbers and red-yellow-green scorecards can lead to much organizational firefighting. What is needed is a Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) reporting methodology that gets organizations out of the firefighting mode.


Control Charting Issues and 30,000-foot-level Resolution reduces Firefighting

Reporting metrics in a 30,000-foot-level format resolves this issue.

The following figure shows how an actual 30,000-foot-level reporting from a red-yellow-green scorecard indicated several improvements were made when a color transitioned from red to green; however, a 30,000-foot-level report-out below this r-y-g report indicates no improvements were made and there is a common-cause non-conformance rate of about 32.6%.  If this rate of non-conformance is not satisfactory, this measurement improvement need pulls for the creation of a process improvement project.


Operational Excellence Framework


An Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) business management system with 30,000-foot-level report-outs throughout the organization provides a methodology that addresses the common-place scorecard and improvement methodology issues described in a one-minute video:
