VII. IMPROVE (23 questions)

A. Design of Experiments (DOE)

  1. Terminology
    Define basic DOE terms including independent and dependent variables, factors and levels, response, treatment, error, etc. (Understand)
  2. Design principles
    Define and apply DOE principles, including power and sample size, balance, repetition, replication, order, efficiency, randomization, blocking, interaction, confounding, resolution etc.. (Apply)
  3. Planning experiments
    Plan, organize and evaluate experiments by determining the objective, selecting factors, responses and measurement methods, choosing the appropriate design, etc. (Evaluate)
  4. One-factor experiments
    Design and conduct completely randomized, randomized block and Latin square designs, and evaluate their results. (Evaluate)
  5. Two-level fractional factorial experiments
    Design, analyze and interpret these types of experiments and describe how confounding affects their use. (Evaluate)
  6. Full factorial experiments
    Design, conduct and evaluate full factorial experiments. (Evaluate)

B. Waste elimination

Select and apply tools and techniques for eliminating or preventing waste, including pull systems, kanban, 5S, standard work, poka-yoke, etc. (Analyze)

C. Cycle-time reduction

Use various tools and techniques for reducing cycle time, including continuous flow, single minute exchange of dies (SMED), etc. (Analyze)

D. Kaizen and kaizen blitz

Define and distinguish between these two methods and apply them in various situations. (Apply)

E. Theory of constraints (TOC)

Define and describe this concept and its uses. (Understand)

F. Implementation

Develop plans for implementing the improved process (i.e., conduct pilot tests, simulations, etc.) and evaluate results to select the optimum solution. (Evaluate)

G. Risk analysis and mitigation

Use tools such as feasibility studies, SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats), PEST analysis (political, environmental, social and technological) and consequential metrics to analyze and mitigate risk. (Apply)
