Improve Button

The goal of the Improve phase is to implement solutions that address the problems (root causes) identified during the previous (Analyze) phase. Shortcuts are provided to the following modules and analytic facilities:

Quality Control Charts. Select Quality Control Charts from the Improve menu to display the Startup Panel of the Quality Control Charts module.

SixGraph Summary. Select SixGraph Summary from the Improve menu to display the Defining Variables for X-bar and R Chart dialog of the Quality Control module; after specifying the respective variables and chart parameters, a SixGraph Summary Graph is produced.

Frequency Tables. Select Frequency Tables from the Improve menu to display the Frequency Tables dialog in the Basic Statistics/Tables module.

Histogram. Select Histogram from the Improve menu to display the 2D Histograms dialog.

Pareto Chart. Select Pareto Chart from the Improve menu to display the variable specifications dialog for the Pareto chart of the Quality Control module.

Process Capability. Select Process Capability from the Improve menu to display the Process Capability Analysis Setup - Raw Data dialog in the Process Analysis module.

Experimental Design. Select Experimental Design from the Improve menu to display the Startup Panel of the Experimental Design module.

Six Sigma Calculator. Select Six Sigma Calculator from the Improve menu to display the Six Sigma Calculator. The Six Sigma Calculator is an extension or special case of the Probability Calculator for the normal distribution; instead of the normal distribution z and p, the Six Sigma Calculator expects as input either Sigma or DPMO (defects per million opportunities), and will compute each quantity from the other.

Stratification Analysis. Select Stratification Analysis from the Improve menu to display the Statistics by Groups (Breakdown) dialog of the Basic Statistics/Tables module.

Stratification Charts. Select Stratification Charts from the Improve menu to display the 2D Categorized Histograms dialog.
