Six Sigma SIG Update

Six Sigma SIG is our ASQ Raleigh Chapter’s special interest group that focuses on Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma methodologies. In our meetings we showcase our members and special guest’s project work as well as tutorials on new and cutting edge quality tools.

Our meetings are very informal with a lot of question and answer time allowing us to delve deeply into some very interesting topics.  Please be a part of our growing and interesting group. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Presentation Title:  Process improvement starts with the right goal

Presentation Summary: In transactional processes (e.g. services and non-manufacturing), Lean Six Sigma projects often encounter difficulty because the problem and project goal are not properly defined.  Attendees will participate in a mini-simulation exercise to collect data and discuss issues and best practices in defining effective project goals.
