Annual Presentation (via Six Sigma Techniques) for Problem Solving

LAYANA Event
It’s my great pleasure to celebrate this annual event of LAYANA again! Each project speaker demonstrated a unique style of methodology, and effort they spent on finishing each project and their endeavors must be cherished. I was quite sympathetic towards this event as I am currently involved in one Six Sigma project.
Stamping Products

Regarding to these six projects, the first speaker, “Minimize DPPM for Stamping Products” by Samuel, was most influential to me. In his project, Samuel clearly described graphs and tables he used, as well as a statistical ROI (Return on Investment) of his project. Moreover, he used IRR to prove that his numbers matched his goals. This led me to a speech that GM had during our QCC presentation: “If you cannot quantify your IRR, you may have to re-think about PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) or you may alter your project…” . Thus, Samuel’s calculation can be a potential material of my Six Sigma project.

To Accomplish

A Six Sigma Project, it requires not only a team leader, but also several colleagues from various departments. When running a project, we have to be aware of steps of every improvement (DMAIC). Furthermore, three major satisfaction elements “Quality, Cost, Delivery” have to be balanced with time spent on a project. I believe Quality and Delivery are of importance to LAYANA team, always. In order to execute an improvement on administrative tasks, we shall emphasize that well-established process maps and control plans must be simple and vivid. For example, using SOP to verify the reality of one project. Some professors may argue that SOP should be constructed in the C phase, yet my second thought is to build a basic SOP in an earlier phase and continually modify SOP until I finish my Six Sigma project.
