Without any other considerations, what conclusion can be made regarding the reproducibility result? - ANSWER A reproducibility of zero means there is no operator effect on this measurement. The average number of major storms in a city is 2 per year. What is the probability that exactly 3 storms will hit next year? - ANSWER 0.180 or 18% Why are scatter diagrams useful in problem-solving? - ANSWER They show relationships between variables.

Remember: The process must first be brought into statistical control by detecting and acting upon special causes of variation. Then its performance is predictable, and its capability to meet customer expectations can be assessed (Cp and Cpk), which is done in the Measure phase. What is the name of the condition if you are running a 7x4 fractional experiment, and you know factors A, B, C, D, and E are independent of each other, but you suspect factors F and G are not independent. You conducted a small sub-experiment and discovered a high correlation between factors F and G. - ANSWER Collinearity If P(A) is 0.6 and P(B) is 0.5 and the probability of either event happening is 0.85, what is the probability of both the events occurring? - ANSWER 0.25 (additive rule) A process has a high variability and an off-centered mean.

What is this type of sampling error called? - ANSWER Non-response error Which approach talks about equipment effectiveness? - ANSWER TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) Which Six Sigma role is most likely to define objectives for an improvement team? - ANSWER Sponsor What is accuracy? - ANSWER Getting an unbiased true value (i.e., bias, linearity, and stability). FYI: Getting consistent results repeatedly = precision (i.e., repeatability and reproducibility). What should the Six Sigma Green Belt do in terms of actions if Cp = 1.3 and Cpk = 0.8? - ANSWER Center the mean Cp (process potential index) and Cpk (process capability index) are used to measure process capabilities and both compare the process spread to the specification spread. However, Cpk also considers the centering of the process distribution. If Cp and Cpk are greater than 1.00, we can say the process is currently marginally capable. If Cpk is not equal to Cp, then the process is not centered. Which of the following is used to test the equality of medians from two or more different populations? - ANSWER Mood's Median While plotting a multi-vary chart on the graph paper, what metric is used for horizontal scale? - ANSWER Time (Y: continuous) (X: discrete, e.g., work-shift, employee, product thickness, etc.) What is the basic assumption of a null hypothesis? - ANSWER That the variables are independent.

In hypothesis testing, if someone stated one minus the level of confidence, then which of the following statistics would be under consideration? - ANSWER The alpha risk Which best defines "Overproduction" type of waste? - ANSWER Producing in excess over the need of a specified amount A "pull" production system is a production systems where you make as much product as you can regardless of whether the customer needs it or not. True or False? - ANSWER False An engineer is considering a fractional factorial instead of a full factorial to analyze a process because of the large number of variables under study. Apart from the possibility of studying a large number of factors with relatively few experiments, what other characteristic will support a decision to use a fractional factorial instead? - ANSWER The process is well known and only the main factors are of concern. Fractional factorial designs consist of a carefully chosen subset (fraction) of the experimental run of a full factorial design. They are cheaper and faster to run but do not provide information about interactions between factors. In the theory of control charts, the distribution of the number of defects per units that vary, closely follows the: - ANSWER Poisson distribution, as it is assumed for defects. Normal: variable data Chi-square: variance Binomial: defectives What are the typical phases of the Six Sigma improvement methodology? - ANSWER DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) Conceptually, which tool that is used in the Six Sigma DMAIC implementation resembles the Process Decision Program Chart (PDPC)? - ANSWER FMEA (The primary purpose of PDPC, or a contingency plan, is to limit risk and avoid failure) FMEA is used in the Define, Analyze, and Improve phases. Identify the post-improvement tool which would be most beneficial when generating fresh ideas after the results of an improvement process have been disappointing. - ANSWER A post-improvement brainstorming session What type of waste is "Patient is ready to be seen but doctor is not available?" - ANSWER Waiting Identify the relationship between Waste and Defect. - ANSWER Defect is a type of waste. While considering the stakeholder groups, which of the following terms is closely identified with the term "community"? - ANSWER Society A scoop samples 100/trial. What must be the average number of defects to be an 80% chance that more than one defect will be found in the sample? - ANSWER 3 (This requires using the Poisson table in reverse.) What is the key benefit of multi-vary charting? - ANSWER It assists in the breakdown of components of variation (such as positional, cyclical, and temporal) so that improvements can be made. It also keeps track of time when measurements are made and graphically displays the variation in a process. When a single gage is checked by comparing the results of different operators taken at different times, a reference is being made to the gage: - ANSWER Reproducibility For 5 factors and 2 levels, the DOE setup has 16 runs. What type of experiment is being conducted? - ANSWER Half-fractional factorial Total # of runs = levels^factors 2^5 = 32. 16 is half of 32.
