Actually, we ve finished the PIUSS module on last week, but i still confuse on the content. I borrowed a book from library, intend to study more about it in order to apply for the PMA. In the module, the aim was studying Six Sigma approach. The pre-work includes PMI and team work. PMI is a speicfic way to teach us each stage of improvement cycle. In our team work,  we have divided into group to do different topic, and then discuss them together near finish. By doing the work, i know that working experience is very important on sometimes. For example, when we discuss the foreseeable  challenges when change management to enhance six sigma project. i only can think about some simple factors, like communication or something. But like Ritina, she has worked before, so she just know some deeply challenges, as complacency or ignoring the new process. and Louis mentioned grant exceptions. Any way, every one in the group did a good job. In the hand-on exercise,our cooperation to building an small-scale plan had a good productivity. we had a big improvement from the first time to the final implementation. During the process, we have dicussed the common variation and specific variation, and then find out the solution to reduce the variation. Also the rational work arrangement is a key factor to improve the performance as one people to do three stages instead of two stage. Lots of strategy from six sigma approach were used in this game, which gave us a deeply impression about six sigma.

Except to the above mentioned, we ve learned Taguchi concept. the same way we understand the theory by  making a helicopter and caculate the signal to noise. Totally speaking, the module is an interesting one, but the formulas in the six sigma approach need to take lots of time to understand them. Hope i can get them soon.

  1. Hi Qian :) I think this is my first entry in your blog
    It’s good to see you blogging some great thoughts about PIUSS. In our group discussion, sometimes you are so quiet I wasn’t sure whether you fell asleep ? But you showed that you were listening carefully. Now I am thinking maybe next time I should give you more opportunity to tell us what you think ? By the way, you did a great job in mechano airplane exercise, probably one of the most consistent operators :) well done !
