Let’s go back to our equation CTQ is a function of one or more Xs or CTQ = f(X1, X2, Xi,....Xn) where:
• CTQ is a measure of your problematic key indicator.
• Xi represents the ith factor that causes your CTQ to be problematic.
First, we completed the Define phase and identified our CTQ(s). Second, we completed the Measure phase by operationally defining, ...
