The project demonstrates the empirical application of Six Sigma and DMAIC to reduce product variation and yield loss within an engineered medical components company. This study followed the DMAIC methodology to investigate root causes and provided solution to reduce these defects. The analysis indicated the current sensitivity setting for the machine was set to tight. After adjustment, while machine kept the same production capacity, the yield loss was reduced from 10% to 2%. Meanwhile, a DOE study analyzed factors which caused product variation and delivered optima setting to reduce noises and predicted the optima output.
