Sig Sigma and Offshore Outsourcing
have a special interest in Chinese manufacturing development,
including Six Sigma methodology and process control. As I mention in
my resume, I have worked for JianAn Auto Co. Ltd. in Chengdu, China,
as well as EMG Machinery Co. Ltd. in Beijing. I combined this
interest with what I learned in, University of Nebraska - Lincoln's
Industrial Engineering program by focusing quality control,
manufacturing, and logistical processes in Chinese manufacturing
choose to use Six Sigma in Quality control project as class project
because I had a chance to work with a local firm--SpeedWay Motor
Company -- which has needs relating to an out-sourcing project. As a
class project, I applied my academic knowledge to real case
application on process control. I run the test with a company
employee to get data from final test. I then analyzed the results
and presented them to SpeedWay Motor Company. Additionally, I analyze
the process according data from the supplier (China) to buyer
(America) by using MINITAB software package.
applied the DMAIC (Design, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control)
Six Sigma methodology to model the outsourcing. This method allowed
me to seek rout cause of an international partner's defective
performance from a process point-of-view. My work outlined how to
increase the domestic firm's satisfaction through data monitoring for
the purpose of continuous improvement through continuous tracking.
I collected load test data from the Mechanical Test Center of the
University of Nebraska - Lincoln. I used the MiniTab statistical
analysis software to analyze the manufacturing process and identify
defects. Other process control tools, such as SIPOC (Suppliers,
Inputs, Process, Outputs, Customer) diagrams, control charts, and
specifications were used in the design.
I submitted my
work for my final project in Dr. Erick Jones' class, Total Quality
Management I received an "A"
on both the paper and the class.
