Use the Y Metrics form to record and track key metrics, such as DPMO, ZBench, and Cpk, throughout the course of your project.
The Y Metrics form answers the following questions.
  • How does the current or baseline process perform?
  • How does the project perform at various stages or milestones of the project?
  • How should the process perform after process improvement?


  1. Enter the baseline and the goal for each metric to track. Optionally, you can add a stretch goal. The values you enter in the table appear as horizontal reference lines on the graph.
  2. Enter dates and metric values to track your progress.
  3. Enter milestones to record significant events, such as the date you implemented an improvement. The values you enter appear as vertical reference lines on the graph.
