A current general need within Six Sigma methodologies is to utilize statistical methods including experimental design in the confirmation of new processes and their parameters. This is typically done in the improve step of the DMAIC process. This need is even more evident in microjoining (small scale resistance welding) due to the number and complexity of the process variables. This paper outlines the improve step of a Six Sigma project in which statistical methods are applied to a microjoining process. These statistical methods include linear experimental design, regression analysis with linear transformation and mathematical modeling. The paper documents the methodology used to establish process parameters in microjoining of an electrical lead frame design.
