Sigmalator: The Six Sigma Value Calculator
Sigmalator: The Six Sigma Value Calculator

$0.99
Category: Analysis

Six Sigma is a set of strategies, tools, methods, and training programs proven in many industries to greatly improve work processes. This business management strategy began in manufacturing processes to eliminate defects (errors), but since has been broadly applied to a variety of industries including the airline industry and most recently, healthcare. In Six Sigma, a defect is broadly defined as anything that can lead to customer dissatisfaction.

The term “six sigma” is derived from a field of statistics known as process capability studies and comes from the idea that if there are six standard deviations between the average and the nearest defect, there will be practically no errors. Originally, it referred to the ability of manufacturing processes to produce a very high proportion of product within its specifications. Processes that operate with “six sigma quality” over the short term are assumed to produce long-term defect levels below 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO). Six Sigma’s implicit goal is to improve all processes to that level of quality or better.

The question is often asked, “What Sigma Level Are We?”. Sigmalator is designed to take the number of defects/errors in a process and calculate a sigma value.

Sigma Levels:

Sigma levels represent the following long-term DPMO values:

• 1 sigma = 690,000 DPMO = 31% efficiency
• 2 sigma = 308,000 DPMO = 69.2% efficiency
• 3 sigma = 66,800 DPMO = 93.32% efficiency
• 4 sigma = 6,210 DPMO = 99.379% efficiency
• 5 sigma = 230 DPMO = 99.9767% efficiency
• 6 sigma = 3.4 DPMO = 99.99966% efficiency

To account for the real-life increase in process variation over time, an empirically-based 1.5 sigma shift is introduced into the calculation. This is based on the fact that a process that is normally distributed will have 3.4 parts per million beyond a point that is 4.5 standard deviations above or below the average. So the 3.4 DPMO of a “Six Sigma” process in fact corresponds to 4.5 sigmas, namely 6 sigmas minus the 1.5 sigma shift introduced to account for long-term variation.

Note: Reporting of “sigma level” is always done having sigma shift turned on by default.

Cpk Calculator
Cpk Calculator

$4.99

Category: Analysis

Cpk Calculation Made Easy, This app allows you to calculate:

– Cp, Cpk, Pp, Ppk, PPM Defects & Confidence Interval

– Fully exportable data and Histogram

This app allows you to calculate process capability (Cpk) in the field, no longer do you need to scribble down data on a note pad, then go back to your desk to input data into an expensive subscription based software (Microtab TM).

This app automatically calculates standard deviation in 1 of 3 ways Depending on Data set characteristics:

1. If data is in one large group we use the regular sample standard deviation calculation (n-1).

If you collect your data in sub groups there are (2) preferred methods of estimating standard deviation using unbiasing constants:

2. Rbar /D2

3. Sbar /C4

Our goal at Brown Belt Institute is to provide valuable process improvement tools with a “fluff” free training approach for anyone at any point in their Lean / Six Sigma journey. We strive to provide the most user friendly tools at the absolute lowest cost.

StarStat
StarStat

FREE
Category: Analysis

StarStat is a free statistical calculator designed to easily perform tests of statistical significance on your survey data.

Survey researchers use significance testing as an aid in expressing the reliability of survey results. Phrases such as “significantly different,” “margin of error,” and “confidence levels” help describe and make comparisons when analyzing data.

The purpose of this free tool is to aid researchers in performing appropriate statistical tests for data analysis.

StarStat includes 3 different tests:

Z-test Calculator:
The z-test of proportions is used to test the difference between proportions (percentages) for two groups. Statistics computed provide the probability that a difference at least as large as noted would have occurred by chance if the two population proportions were in fact equal.

T-test Calculator:
The t-test of independent means is used to test the difference between means for two groups. Statistics computed provide the probability that a difference at least as large as noted would have occurred by chance if the two population means were in fact equal.

Sample Precision Calculator:
Sample precision or margin of error calculations determine a conservative estimate of sampling error for a given sample size. These estimates are helpful in answering questions like: “How large a sample do I need?” or “How reliable are my survey results?”

StarStat was developed by DataStar, Inc., a leading provider of survey management and data processing services, specializing in web surveys for employee and customer feedback. For more information, contact us at www.surveystar.com.
