The Problem Solving Strategy Y = f(x).

Six Sigma DMAIC projects can be looked at in the most simple terms as trying to achieve some kind of process improvement for a client.

Let’s say the client’s desired outcome is Y and that the entire process that it takes to deliver that result is the function x represented as F(x).

When the client’s ultimate request can be represented by a bunch of smaller goals, this can scale to something called ‘big y’ and ‘little y’s’, which would look like so: Y = y1 + y2 + y3 + … yn = F(x) = f(x1) + f(x2) + f(x3) + … f(xn).

Great post however I was wanting to know if you could write a
litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
