In the era of modern manufacturing as it is now, surely the practitioner knows the term six sigma manufacturing within the company. Six Sigma originally intended for manufacturing companies only, now have started venturing to other industries, such as hospitality, logistics, and others. Why six sigma a lot applied by the company, even for some companies it is a dream to be achieved? This article will discuss it briefly. Six Sigma is essentially a methodology used to support the production process. Quality of goods being the main factor considered in this methodology. But, more than that, the goal of implementing six sigma in the company actually measured financially. Yes, the point we want to profit us up while using six sigma, not so? Six Sigma is essentially a research methodology that is used to measure and reduce defects in the production process, with the standard numbering up to 6 digits 0, i.e. one million. With a comprehensive research, of course the quality is expected to be on the rise, and customer satisfaction (customer satisfication) became increasingly high, until finally, yes as I said above, the company's cash flow is becoming increasingly smooth.
Phases Six Sigma
There's an awful lot that can be discussed when we talk about six sigma, but on this occasion, let us discuss about tahapan-tahapannya when implemented in a company. According to Breyfogie, the stage of the six sigma is divided into 5 sections: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improvise, and Control. Often also called DMAIC. Yes, Just shortened it.
At this early stage, the company started looking for any problems that occur in the production process and Quality Controlnya. Product failure whatever happens. And usually, that problem is divided into two types: i.e. symptoms (symptoms) and the root of the problem (the roots of the problem). The difference would already know dong ya? Typically, the most sought after in the process define it is the root of the problem.
At this stage, the company has begun to determine what data are needed to address that issue. Not only that, the company has also had to start doing data retrieval with a variety of methods. Interview, observation, study library, whatever that if deemed necessary, should be immediately done. Of course, before the company has also had to determine the magnitude of sample is examined to further reduce defects and improve product quality.
If the data already collected, of course the next step obviously. Yep, the analysis of data already entered it. Though with a variety of facilities. By having the data already collected, the company was able to compare present conditions (current state) with the condition that want intended (future state). In addition, when the data already collected, the formulation of the problem created in the beginning (define) can already be seen with more actual and sharp. It could be that, at this stage of this formulation would appear to analyse problems in stage 1 is not yet known.
When the analysis was done, of course has a plan of what to do. At this stage of the implementation is done. Based on the analysis that was made before, the company will begin to perform the improvements needed to increase product quality. The assignment start is given to each key person designated to immediately resolve the root problem.
When it was done, and the implementation of various improvement process is already running, the course takes one stage again to close it. At this stage of this control, the companies document what changes from before. How this change impacts the quality of the product, is it as desired? And don't forget to draw up sustainable improvement plan (sustain) so that the company can keep going forward following the development of the times. Evaluation plan in the long term is also required, in order for the quality (which for example is already so much better) remains awake. That's the last article Overview of six sigma and tahapan-tahapannya. May be useful. If you have any questions, do not need to be ashamed to write it in the comments field. Thank you.
