This research aims to analyze waste or loss using the 7-waste approach and value added/non value added activities in the production process at PT. XYZ. This research also aims to evaluate the production process capability and sigma values at PT. XYZ and used DMAIC technique (Define, Measure, Analysis, Improvement, and Control) from Lean Six-sigma with an analysis using Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA). The results of the research obtained the values of Process Cycle Efficiency (PCE) of 47.29%, CTQ (Critical to Quality) and process capability value in the form of Cpm (Capability Index) for each process stage and yield. Line-5 has DPMO (Defects per Million Opportunities) value of 29,632,607 with a Sigma Score 3.39, and FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) analysis resulted in recommendations for improvement at each process stage.

Keywords: process cycle efficiency, biscuit, lean six-sigma, CTQ, Cpm
