Spirax Sarco, the leader in products and services for steam system solutions has released its latest White Paper entitled “Six Sigma Steam System Management” which explains how the five phases of six sigma is applied to steam system management.
Steam facilities are complex systems with manly potential points of failures, even the smallest of which can increase cost and risk if left untended. In order to identify and improve weak points in a system, a methodology must be applied in a consistent manner.
Six Sigma, DMAIC, is a data-driven improvement cycle that achieve measurable, reproducible results. By applying Six Sigma principles, areas of cost and risk can be identified and rectified.
Six Sigma, DMAIC, is comprised of five phases: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. When each of these phases is applied to steam system management, problems are identified, baselines are established, causes of inefficiencies are targeted, operations are improved, and optimal operating conditions become the normal state of business.
