Take a tour and see QuikSigma for yourself
Take this tour to see how the belts stay on track, and are able to remember what to do and how to analyze data.
When you first open QuikSigma you are greeted by the welcome screen. The two large green buttons get you started by asking if you would like to begin a new project or open an existing project.
On the left on the project navigator is displayed:   Define  ,   Measure  ,  Analyze  ,  Improve  , and  Control  . These are the DMAIC phases. Under each phase are the major tools that will be used. This provides a visual road map to keep the belt on track.
As the belts proceed their progress is tracked making it easy for the champions to follow. Check marks indicate tools completed and dots indicate work in progress. The define stage is done but this belt is skipping the MSA and Baseline steps, time to call the mentor.
When you click on the colored phases in the project navigator a summary is displayed in the main window. These phase summaries remind the belt what the purpose of the phase is and how to proceed.
Here the belt is in the Measure phase and clicks on MSA to begin (Measurement Systems Analysis).
When the belt clicks on MSA a lead in screen helps the belt remember what MSA tool best applies to their project. For a categorical measurement system a Kappa test is selected.

MSA is clicked

A lead in screen reminds the belt
which tool is most appropriate

We need Kappa
Notice that as the belt works in Kappa it appears on the project navigator. The navigator marks it with a dot to show work in progress. In the lower right the graphical gauge is easy to read, the blue needle is in the red, not good. Also to the left of the gauge is an explanation in plain English reminding the belt how to interpret the results.
If the belts have trouble remembering how the tool works they can click on the light bulb and get instant tutoring. This explains concepts, shows them how to set up the tool, and how to interpret the results.



Interpreting Results

Having the phase summaries, the tool lead in screens and the light bulb setup and interpretation screens as a constant guide is a huge factor in why the belts are succeeding but there are many more features that help ensure their success.
Lets look at a capability analysis for example. Capability was opened by clicking Baseline on the project navigator and then Process Capability on the lead in screen.

All the important steps in a capability study are built into the tool. To test for stability and predictability a behavior chart (control chart) is provided. to make sure the PPM estimates are valid a normality chart is provided, the slider bar lets a green belt know that a senior belt should assist when it dips into the red.
The Behavior chart, also know as a control chart. This is what you would typically see in an I-MR chart. we will spice things up in just a bit.
This is where you select the type of chart (I-MR, I-S, Xbar- R, Xbar-S, P, and U) These are tests of special cause Your specs go here, this is also where you can split or trend data! This let you know just what to do with your process again in plain English. The PPM numbers are given as well as the traditional capability indices Normality chart and slider bar. its in the green so I can believe my PPMs
Now to spice things up a bit. This is the kid of chart you get with trended data if you don't have QuikSigma
Just by checking Trended you have a trended chart. Nice!
Chart Split is another nice feature. Use it to compare the Old process with the new improved one.
Or mix Trended with Split, you wont be able to do that anywhere but QuikSigma. Very Nice!
Outliers that should be removed are also nicely handled. You can see how the three outliers are captured by the mouse. Any point selected in the chart will be identified in the data column by a   q  blue triangle. This is handy.
The points selected are effortlessly flagged. Notice the    } red triangles on the chart and in the data column. Now the limits on the chart no longer reflect the bad data but they can still be seen. also notice we didn't halve to put an asterisks and lose the data. Much better!
There are many great features that this tour can't even begin to cover. By now you should a sense for the way belts can quickly get thru projects correctly the first time. For more information or to arrange a demo please contact us.
