Process Performance Indicators Example: 30,000-foot-level Continuous Response

By in

This process performance indicators example shows how to create a powerful 30,000-foot-level report-out that can reduce organization firefighting and provide valuable process insight never observed before.

The dataset used in this example is from Integrated Enterprise Excellence Volume III – Improvement Project Execution: A Management and Black Belt Guide for Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard.

The following figure shows a screenshot of IEE Volume III. This image describes potential applications of the following 30,000-foot-level reporting methodology beyond the measurement of batch viscosity over time.

The dataset used in the following 30,000-foot-level reporting, perhaps as a key performance indicator (KPI) over time, is:

The following figure illustrates the result of applying a free app (that anyone can use for tracking the output of their processes) to create a 30,000-foot-level report-out, similar to Figure 12.5 in Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) Volume III.

For this operations performance indicators example, the data using this free app results in concluding that the process is stable with an estimated 17.4% non-conformance rate (shown at the bottom of the 2-chart pair) for a specification range of 72 to 78.

If this anticipated (current and future prediction) response is undesirable, this unsatisfactory measured performance would “pull” to undertake process improvement efforts.

This image’s bottom-of-the-chart futuristic reporting is consistent with the non-conformance rate shown in Figure 12.5 of IEE Vol III with this reported percentage. If one were to right-click on the image in this app, they could save the graph as a PNG file to use elsewhere; e.g., a PowerPoint presentation or Word Document.


Process Performance Indicators Example Application: IEE Volume II and III

There are descriptions of applying 30,000-foot-level continuous response reporting for both Lean Six Sigma project metrics AND business KPI reporting in a 4-book IEE Series. The IEE Volume II in the set provides details for applying KPI reporting techniques at the business level. The IEE Volume III describes using the above process-output-response-metric-reporting techniques at the Lean Six Sigma improvement project execution level. A project’s metric 30,000-foot-level baseline would occur in the measure phase of the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) roadmap.

Over 140 Datasets and Solutions Manual for Application Extension of this Process Performance Indicators Example

The  IEE Volume III Solutions Manual provides over 140 datasets. One can use the above-described app to re-create the 30,000-foot-level metric report-outs in the IEE Volume II and IEE Volume III books, i.e., as described in the above process performance indicators example.


DMAIC Lean and Six Sigma Tools Integration

In applying Lean and Six Sigma, it is vital to use the right tool at the right time. The book Lean Six Sigma Project Execution Guide: The Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) Process Improvement Project Roadmap provides a Roadmap for accomplishing this essential objective.
