If you have it diagramed in a flow chart format, there are solutions such as an igrafx product, process for six sigma in each case these are time proven solutions each is extremely powerful and will provide supportable results. Simulation and six sigma are a powerful combination to help process improvers to make informed decisions simulation enables realistic representations of systems to be easily created and tested in a risk-free environment to ensure improvement ideas will eliminate defects, reduce costs and increase profitability. Six sigma is driven by a dmaic approach that identifies, measures, analyzes, improves and sustains the process dmaic is a cycle used to eliminate the defect or improve the opportunities in the process for business improvements through five main steps: define, measure, analyze, improve, and control.
