Problem solving is done using Six Sigma with DMAIC framework. Each of root cause is analyzed by correlation analysis and process capability analysis. Analysis of variance (Anova) is used to find correlation of root cause. Process capability analysis is used to evaluate performance of each root cause. Alternative solution for each root cause is discussed by modified category importance weight that consider uncertainity of success of each criteria.
