Before and after
PowerPoint template for Six Sigma training and presentation materials. We designed editable infographics explaining Six Sigma principles, underlying statistical theory and main 6S processes such as DMAIC cycle, DMADV cycle within DFSS, Concept Questions or Lean Problem Solving Workflow. These diagrams can be used to visualize the Six Sigma approach to production or general business processes improvements.
The Six Sigma presentation template deck includes:
- 16 modern diagrams of 6 Sigma concepts and principles. We added also a template to list Six Sigma Steps, Pros and Cons comparison and list of industrial application of 6S. All flowcharts are in a universal flat graphical style that fits various branding styles.
- 36 editable icons that you can use to illustrate Six Sigma concepts e.g. 6S stages: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control, Search, business symbols of productivity, design, goal.
- Format: fully editable vector shapes (modify colors of diagrams and icons, resize without quality loss
What is the concept of Six Sigma?
Six Sigma framework was developed by Motorola (Bill Smith and Bob Galvin) in the '80s. The purpose of this Six Sigma approach it to create a system for quality improvement process. The main principle of Six Sigma is to systematically work on decreasing number of defects in the production process, to a level that is statistically insignificant - hence the 6 sigma name. It represents very low probability of event occurrence - under 0,000002% = 100% - 99,999998% the probability of event occurrence. For comparison, one sigma corresponds to defect probability 31,7% - that is almost every 3rd product to have a defect.
What are the stages of Six Sigma project management technique?
Typical Six Sigma Steps diagram illustrates five stages in this project management framework, often known as DMAIC or DFSS (for design related processes).
DMAIC is the main project approach within Six Sigma methodology representing improvement process cycle. DMAIC is an acronym that stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. DMAIC cycle is applied to optimize the production of a general business process.
Six Sigma for the case of Design processes (not production improvement) is called DFSS - this acronym stands for Design for Six Sigma. DMADV cycle in Six Sigma is an alteration of DMAIC process, adapted for Design in Six Sigma. DFSS process diagram is composed of Define, Measure, Analyze, Design (instead of Improve) and Verify (instead of Control).

How to use 6S template diagrams as your presentation visuals?Simply copy one of the diagrams into your presentation, to illustrate it by vivid visuals. You can modify each shape color, add text descriptions or replace symbols.
Why to use diagrams as your presentation illustrations?Using diagrams helps to explain principles of Six Sigma in a modern, clear and eye-catching way.
On last slides, you have a set of icons you can use to extend your slides. You can also expand this symbols collection by getting additional PPT icons (see Related Diagrams section).
Colors of these diagram shapes and icons are fully editable (all graphics is a vector format). So you can change them to colors of your template or company brand.
