Edit check programming and testing is time consuming and labor intensive. As such, it is efficient to minimize the time spent on programming by getting it right the first time. Historically, data management have measured edit check success as the percentage of edit checks that pass User Acceptance Testing (UAT). However, that may not be the best measure. What if an alternative metric leveraging Lean Six Sigma Methodology was used? The Rolled Throughput Yield (RTY) is a metric often employed in manufacturing operations to detect the probability that a process with more than one step will produce a defect free unit. If we track this metric for the edit check process, we can better gauge the probability of success of the edit check program.
