FREE! Lean Six Sigma Root Cause Analysis Toolset(AD)
This FREE Downloadable ZIP file contains seven templates in the Lean Six Sigma Root Cause Analysis toolset (Including the Cause and Effect Matrix). Each template is in a Microsoft Excel format. These tools are used in the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control – Six Sigma pro... (Define, Measure, Improve, and Control) phases of a Lean Six Sigma Root Cause Analysis.
Step #4: List the Inputs for all of the Steps in the Process.
Step #5: Determine the Correlation Scores
Step #6: Prioritizing the Inputs
Sort the “Total” in descending order (from greatest value to smallest value). This will prioritize the Inputs based on their effect to the Output
Step #7: Pick the top Inputs
Pick the top three to five as Key Process Input Variables to move into the Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
The Cause and effect matrix is a Lean Six Sigma tool used to prioritize the key process input variables (KPIVs) based on priorities of customer outputs (KPOVs). In other words, it establish the correlation between process input variables to the customer’s outputs during root cause analysis.
