  • Thanks everyone for the generous reply.
    My training did involve projects in the classroom, and is being guided by a champion, complete with the methodology and tools. The third assessment requires us to do it on our own.

    @cseider @MBBinWI @ShelbyJarvis, Our company doesn’t have a team solely dedicated to process improvement. Our structure is…[Read more]

  • Nicely stated @MBBinWI . I often give the clunky answer of long term sigma has most/all of the special causes which isn’t as intuitive of a statement.

  • @MBBinWi LOL

    Miss seeing you as a coworker.

  • @MBBinWI I was hoping to get a mea culpa that it was homework from a class by the original poster.

    I hope your summer is treating you well. DFW hasn’t had its first official 100 degree day so it’s been a mild season so far.

  • @MBBinWI I was wondering when someone would recognize this homework problem. Where is Darth when you need the classic “Do your own homework!”

  • @MBBinWI I think the word is opportunistic. Not that it is a bad thing.

    @MBBinWI Thanks. People who feel that they need a single metric have always been a mystery to me. How do you get into a management position when you can only deal with a single metric.

    Let’s see if this one stirs anyone up. Why to I need to bundle up groups of standard deviations so I can refer to them as Cpk?

    Just my opinion.

  • @MBBinWI

    After his change in focus? I wouldn’t bother with gage R&R for simple timing of tasks either. :)

    I was referencing his original query on process capability of machining parameters.

  • @MBBinWI

    Hi, that was really helpful and i really appreciate the kind advice.
    Just some stuffs to clarify, after using Gage R&R to measure the accuracy of observing time. Can the number of trial be using different equipment?
    Eg. Observant 1 using Mobile phone in trial 1
    using stop watch in trial 2
    Observant 2 using Mobile…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Extra punchy today? I pity the person who doesn’t get trained with context.

  • @MBBinWI & @cseider, Sirs, Thank you very much for your response. Can you please guide me how to find probability of these tests you mentioned for non normal data please?

  • @MBBinWI & @cseider Sirs, I am just learner in Six Sigma concept. I am asking one question if the Data is itself not normal but we make X-bar R chart then the test to find presence of special causes in the data? Please sir guide on the topic.

  • I noticed…..but it wasn’t an exciting enough change for me to comment @MBBinWI I hope all is well with you.

  • @MBBinWI
    Great choice in reference and definitely great since it’s so integrated with a well accepted statistical package.

    One other read (but it’s kinda heavy [literally and figuratively]) is…[Read more]

  • If you must, you can convert a ppm defective to a Ppk but I wouldn’t recommend that “exercise”.

    If you still find majority aren’t normal….there could be many reasons for this and how to proceed is a long answer (including how good your gage is–as my friend and colleague @MBBinWI suggested).

  • @MBBinWI Homework question? ;)

  • @MBBinWI A it grumpy from the long winter? Let’s raise a glass to a quick spring warm up!

  • LOL @MBBinWI :)

    I try.

  • Chris Seider replied to the topic VOC for Us? in the forum Marketing and Sales 1 year ago

    Great story @MBBinWI .

    You give great answers and comments to overly broad inquiries. Stay in touch.

  • Chris Seider replied to the topic Target Mean Vs Estimated Mean in the forum General 1 year ago

    I’ve seen other approaches, @MBBinWI.

    Also, it becomes more interesting to talk specifics when it’s a one sided spec.
