    Ramesh,
    In Six Sigma, you need to do the 5why’s using the expertise of the CFT in that process. 5Why’s would only give you possible root causes and mind you that the answer of your 1st “Why” is not limited to one answer-you could have as many possible root causes in which you would use for your 2nd level “Why” until you reach the level five…[Read more]

  • Hi Ed,
    Why did the management select data entry as your project? Your problem would boil down to project selection! Let the management have a “Project Selection training or orientation.”

    Yes, if your data collection is not properly done. you will have a “merry go round sigma level.”

  • C Seider,
    I think my question is clear enough-“I have a project that will be closed at the measure phase. Can I consider it a six sigma project? ”
    I was asking if I can consider it a six sigma project. By the way I’m already a certified black belt and this is not my first project closed – understand? This is the first time that I come across a…[Read more]

    Singh,
    To have a successful sixsigma deployment, it must be a top down implementation not the other way around.
    I’m sure even if you will know sixsigma methodology, you cannot make it. Top management of your company should know first what sixsigma is and the benefits it will give to their company.
    The key word here is ” support ” without it,…[Read more]

    Howard,
     
    I was reading a presentation material from our company intranet and come across with the new 5S which is actually 5M. It’s measurement, Material, Machine, Me, and Method.
    I will try to look for the details.

  • Mike,
     
    thank you, I will try to make a control chart for attribute data and see if the process is already stable.

    Mia,
    You’re not alone, we have the same situation here. I’m a blackbelt and do the project identification with other blackbelt. In the introduction of our training, it was also taught that project identification is management’s job, we are the expert on doing those projects but is now little by little becoming an expert in project identification…[Read more]

    TK421,
    Thanks for your input, it’s correct that inspection is a non-value adding process(cost) but before you can improve your process, I think you need to have a very good MSA when ” you look at you current data.”

    Thanks Bob J

  • AbetF replied to the topic MSA – time bound? in the forum General 15 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks to both of you.
    But what if during launches of a particular product, before mass production, we cannot do it in secret and they are still lax ( but future speed can be determined using ramp – up production schedule ) on that time because we will be using calibration harness ( as we call it ).

  • Zeeshan,
     
    Thanks for the response but Tim, got my question right and I did exactly what he told me and it worked.
    Of course I made an additional cells to make it 18 columns.

    Kesha,
    Can you please elaborate more what p ( 0.5 ) and c ( 0.04 ) mean on the site you gave?

  • Jav,
    You’re right, that’s exactly what is happening on our company. As we start SS, it’s $$$$$$$$ but today, some BB’s are assigned to handle quality focus sixsigma projects and some on financials. But even my  quality project which I’m about to close this month has a financial impact.

  • Packrat,
     
    Our minitab version is 13.32 but limited only up to 7 numeric columns and at least two.
    Anyways, I got already the result using excel.
    thanks,

  • Packrat,
    Is your minitab version can accommodate 18 factors( jigs) at one time?

    Gabriel,
    You’re one of those who I consider expert on sixsigma in this forum, thank you for your prompt answer.
    All inspection points are of the same type-dimensional, the method of inspection is also the same-using a dimensional table, but the pass-fail criteria- they have different tolerance band, some are +/- 5mm, some are +10/-5mm, etc.

  • TimF,
     
    Thanks, I tried it in excel and I got the same result except for slight difference in chi-square value. I got 76.33.
    thanks,
