Master Black Belt Mentors Answer The Following Pr
Please see the attached file to understand the prompt:
Similar to the Measure Phase, the Analyze Phase should be completed correctly and thoroughly with the appropriate amount of technical detail explanation. It should include the results of all analyses performed on the data collected during the project thus far or the qualitative nature of the questions.
In this section, you should analyze and discuss the relationships and any sensitivity/correlation between your KPIVs and KPOVs. For example, you should discuss those KPIVs and KPOVs that have a direct cause-and-effect relationship.
Your analysis will more than likely include both a qualitative assessment and a quantitative assessment. For a qualitative assessment, you might include a cause-and-effect diagram summarizing results, a process map, a concise discussion of the results from brainstorming sessions or interviews with affected employees, etc.
For your quantitative analysis, you should provide some data analysis that demonstrates a more systematic and comprehensive assessment of your key output variable and/or the main causes for lack of performance. Please recognize that the purpose of the project is to solve a problem and not necessarily to use a specific quality/statistical analysis tool or method. Thus, use the tool/method that is appropriate to solving the problem, even if the tool used is fairly simple analytically.
Similar to the Measure Phase, your team is required to demonstrate its use and understanding of quality and Lean Six Sigma concepts and tools by showing evidence of the use of at least three (3) appropriate data analysis tools/methods – however, the more the team properly uses, the better. You should support this requirement by including at least one summary table, graph, or diagram for each tool/method within the main body of the text (e.g., you might include a Pareto chart, stratification analysis table, cause-and-effect diagram, scatter plot, histogram, correlation analysis, process control charts, analysis of variance, value stream map, simulation, etc.). These tables and figures must be integrated into the main body of your report; additional background material may be included in the Appendix. The instructor and Master Black Belt mentors who are assigned to your project may request resubmission of the project report, so that additional analysis is included, if appropriate.
Again, similar to the Measure Phase, your team should strategically use graphs, figures and tables to summarize the analyses in order to succinctly support and communicate the outcomes/insights/conclusions from the results. Do not present long, bulky data set tables in the main body of the report; place them in the appendices to the report. Any raw data should be relegated to the Appendix, properly numbered, labeled and ultimately referenced within the text.
Your team must discuss the outcomes/insights/takeaways/conclusions from the results of which the reader should be made aware. This is because the analyses provide the impetus of the team’s generation of alternative system/process designs, which is a subsequent section in the Baseline Analysis Report
