Mistake Proofing Matrix

To generate solutions for minimizing and eliminating potential mistakes, use this matrix to come up with new and previously unexplored mistake-proofing ideas. Combine the matrix with the 21 Mistake Proofing Techniques to look at your process/system in generic terms and match that with the type of error/defect you wish to avoid.

Morphological Matrix

Generate solution concepts by combining design alternatives.  Use this tool to combine design options at the sub function level to help you come up with new solutions.  You can use this after you have used the Function Structure technique.  If you are using the Axiomatic Design technique you can use this to translate functional requirements into design parameters.

Pareto Chart Template

The Pareto Principle states that 80% of defects come from 20% of root causes. The Pareto Chart helps to identify those causes that contribute the most defects to a product or process. This template provides a structure for creating a Pareto Chart in Excel 97-2003.

Pilot Charter

A pilot program tests the final design under limited real world conditions to verify original design assumptions versus actual performance. The Pilot Charter is a document that students can use to plan the pilot to make sure all the elements are considered for a successful pilot.

Potential Solution Analysis Matrix

The Potential Solution Analysis matrix summarizes potential solutions and prioritizes them based on their Solution Priority Number (SPN). The SPN rates a solution on its Ease, Permanence, Impact and Cost.

Prioritization Matrix

Prioritizing and selecting projects is an essential part of the Lean Six Sigma process. This template provides a format for quantitatively evaluating projects in order to select them. Company leaders and managers can use this to determine how their resources can be used most effectively.

Process Capacity Table

The Process Capacity Table defines how much equipment is needed within a process. This template outlines a structure to capture this data. It provides a computational chart to calaculate process capability via machine cycle time, idle time and the number of pieces produced.

Process Management Assessment Tool

This Process Management Assessment Tool is designed to give a structure to managing and monitoring your core business processes. Use this form with your process owners and operational managers to rate your daily process management on seven key elements: customer insight, process understanding, process owner, measures, acting on variation, standardization and reviews.
