14. Multivariate Chart Template

by Sharma, Aseem

Use this template to capture a comprehensive list of potential root causes to a problem, commonly 12 to 15, and then systematically eliminate those with the lowest degree of variation.

15. Tutorial: Using DOE to Identify Main Effects and Interactions

by Christolear, Dean

Design of experiments (DOE) is a powerful statistical tool that allows maximum learning with minimum experimentation. The traditional approach to experimental design—varying one factor at a time and observing the results—can produce a large number of experimental runs while failing to reveal important interactions. As this discussion illustrates, interactions are best found by varying more than one input at a time in an experiment. A companion template is available at www.asq.org/sixsigma/tools-exchange/docs/3-factor-doe-template.xls.

22. Assignable Cause Log Template

by McCain, Cecelia

The Assignable Cause Log is used with process measures and control plans to document out-of-control situations occurring from nonrandom or assignable causes. A separate log is maintained for each control plan measure.

Write the name of the measure in the Control Plan Measure field and the date of the incident in the first Date field. Investigate to determine the root cause of the incident, and write an explanation in the Assignable Cause Detail field. Include the type of analysis conducted, as well as the tools used (e.g., brainstorming session, data collection check sheet, etc.) Take the action necessary to remove the root cause of the variation, and write the action taken in the Action Taken field. Write the date action was taken in the second Date field, and file with the appropriate Control Plan measure.
