Examples

Scatter Diagram — Correlation — Graphical Methods
No correlation does not mean there is no cause-and-effect relationship. There might be a relationship over a wider range of data.
Scatter Diagram — Minitab - Graphical Methods
This is an analysis that shows the relationship between two variables. The scatter diagram suggests that the two variables are correlated. (Data source: Minitab Inc)
Scatter Diagram — Minitab - Graphical Methods
This analysis was conducted for diagnosing the presence of diabetes at a workplace. It suggests that there is no obvious relationship between age and glucose levels.
Scatter Diagram — Matrix Plot — Minitab - Graphical Methods
In this matrix plot, it appears that there is a positive relationship between the years of experience and salaries. (Data source: Minitab Inc)
Value Stream Map — Product Family Matrix
This is an example of a product family matrix which can help choosing the product or family of products that will be of most value.
Value Stream Map — Symbols
Value stream mapping uses a set of symbols to denote the various details. These are the basic symbols that are applicable in most situations.
Value Stream Map
In a value stream map, the information flow is commonly placed at the top, material flow at the middle, and the VSM timeline are placed at the bottom of the map.
Value Stream Map
This is an example of a current state value stream map for a typical manufacturing process.
Value Stream Map
Value stream mapping can also be applied in service-related industries such as healthcare, hospitality and logistics. This example illustrates a value stream map for an equipment installation process.
Value Stream Map
This is an example of a current state value stream map that was created for a specific product family in a manufacturing facility.
Process Map — Process Yield Measures
Final yield (FY) is widely used yield metric that is easy to calculate. This is an example of a 3-step process map which has a final yield equals that is equal to 90%.
Process Map — Process Yield Measures
This is a process that has 3 steps performing at a 0.94, 0.91 and 0.92 respectively. If 100 units entered the process and only 89 were good units, final yield would be 89%, and rolled throughput yield would be: 0.94 x 0.91 x 0.92 = 78.7%.
Process Map — Process Yield Measures
In this can-making process example, the probability of manufacturing a can that meets all performance standards would be 90.28% (i.e. RTY = 90.28%).
SIPOC
This is an example of a SIPOC map for an idea generation and implementation process.
SIPOC
This is an example of a SIPOC map for a car purchasing process at a car dealership.
