  • Don’t forget the power of checking with a simple I-MR chart if your process is in statistical control. If not, then one can’t assume +/- 3 standard deviations is your expected variation.

    However, my addition is a more detailed answer than you probably need. Robert B.’s answer is a perfect start.

  • If you have a cycle time of partial seconds, then you could worry about doing a precision MSA but if not, it’s not practical to see if something takes 12 seconds or 120 seconds because the goal would be to eventually find a bottleneck or reduce overall cycle time.

    You can do a quick precision check with another calibrated timer which is more…[Read more]

  • @Rahil — Did you search this site? You’ll find plenty of information answering your questions. You might want to start here: http://www.isixsigma.com/new-to-six-sigma/getting-started/what-six-sigma/

  • @Scanni84 What do you think? How would you approach this? How have you tried to approach this? Where do you think you’re going wrong?

    iSixSigma readers are happy to help but they don’t want to do someone’s work for them.

  • @Elle — What do you think? How would you approach this question?

    iSixSigma readers are generous with help, but they are not here to do your homework for you.

  • @tompyzdek — No, there’s not.

  • Create a scenario that fits one of the business processes for the company, show DMAIC by having the group actively do ONE type of tool for each phase and have them see the tools in action–even if it’s a subgroup.

  • You can create a “mini” six sigma exercise that takes about 30 minutes of your talk.

  • However, I was asked many years ago to implement SPC across a facility (without any other framework). It was the plant leadership that asked for this so I considered the following with great success:

    1. FIRST start on the Y’s
    2. Run process capability and Measurement System Analysis
    3. Fix the “gages” that are broken because nothing damages…[Read more]

  • This may sound trite but it’s true…

    Be sure to align the continuous improvement efforts with the business needs. Maybe you’re working on portions of the business that aren’t as critical. For example, one shouldn’t be working on debottlenecking a process, unless entire shifts can be eliminated with direct labor savings, if the business is…[Read more]

  • Have you considered the definition of a defect? If so, what does having a USL and LSL provide…this should help you answer.
