  • Since many of the large companies that have implemented Six Sigma are below the S&P index, yet Six Sigma is known for its ability to drive verifiable cost savings, it would then appear that Six Sigma is an operational tool and not a strategic business tool. 
    This logic begs the question: “How can Six Sigma be used as an overarching business s…[Read more]

    Mr. Sam Orez. I am so sorry that my command of the
    English language does not meet your implied or implicit
    standards. I will strive to continuously improve usage and
    structure, as well as spelling and clarity. My forthcoming
    campaign of improvement will be automatically extended
    to include a reduction of ignorance. I do pray that…[Read more]

    Mr. Tom:
    This is my understanding as well.  Perhaps our kind forum consultants might comment on this particular aspect of the discussion.

    Mr. Tom:
    Do you believe the Zeta Distribution, Riemann Hypothesis, or Zipf’s Law has anything to do with this discussion?

    To Dr. EdG. 
    Thank you for your interest in the concept of value creation.  Inclusion of the C2 term helps us to better understand the root ideas that underpin the common term we refer to as “capability.”  That is to say, the capability of something (virtually anything) is actually the ratio of its realized capacitiy contrasted to the as…[Read more]

  • Dr. Phil. Why do you seek to create ill will toward me? I
    have done you no harm, only admiring your position on
    this forum and holding deep respect for your expertise
    and advice. Your command of Six Sigma is most
    impressive and I hope to call upon this expertise to further
    the current discussion. I would enjoy your work on the…[Read more]

    Mr. Bradley:
    It is a fact that I am the smartest person I know, simply because I recognize how stupid I really am.  I struggle so much with this every day of my life; doing stupid things in a stupid way, asking stupid questions.  If only I was a little smarter.  I do yearn for this so much. 
    Only then would I be able to detect something oth…[Read more]

    Perhaps a real world example is in order:
     
    1)       The fixed cost of a particular process is $100 per hour
    2)       The variable cost has a mean of $25 per hour
    3)       The variable cost has a standard deviation of $3 per hour
    4)       The process cycles every 10 minutes
    5)       A unit of product is produced upon completion of ea…[Read more]

    Mr. Gibbons.  Please reference the following corrected addendum:
    4a) Process capacity can be expressed in terms of ITO cycles.
    4b) With respect to 4a, process capacity is correlated to output units
    4c) A = Number of successful ITO cycles per standard unit of time.
    4d) B = Number of potential ITO cycles per standard unit of time.
    4e) C =…[Read more]

    Mr. Kirk. 
    I will happily compy with your request and must admit that, once the text had posted, it was very difficult to read.  I apologize for your underserved headache and will ensure that humanity is never again subjected to this inconvienent format.  We certainly do not want the world of Six Sigma to become crosseyed — good vision for th…[Read more]

    Mr. Paul Gibbons.  To satisfy your need; e.g., getting to the point:
    1) There exist too many capability metrics (discrete and continuous).
    2) Current capability metrics are difficult to amalgamate.
    3) Only one metric is needed for all applications.
    4) Capability = Actual Performance / Ideal Performance
    5) The absolute range of point 4 is z[Read more]

  • Annonymous replied to the topic Velocity of Value in the forum General 16 years, 9 months ago

    It occurs to me that currently available process capability
    metrics exist in two preeminent domains. The first domain
    embodies a class of metrics designed for continuous
    data. The second domain encompasses those metrics
    that rely on discrete data. The commonality of these two
    domains is reflected by the concept of a ratio; i.e., a…[Read more]

    Mr. IAM. Again, let me applaud your continued
    contribution to this discussion. I too love to learn. The
    contributors to this forum can (and have) teach me a thing
    or two (and likely much more). As you are not quick to
    shut the door, neither am I. I will stick with this discussion;
    at least until my small brain collapses from…[Read more]

    Mr. EdG. Thank you kindly for your insightful reply. You
    are absolutely right; I am currently constraining my
    discussion on the producer’s side of things. I do believe
    the VOV concept can be more easily understood by
    staying on this side of the fence for a while. I strongly
    seek to provide this forum with quality answers (and…[Read more]

    Mr. Paul Gibbons. First, let me say that your recent post
    was fantastic. Your fine example is simple, yet very
    effective. Your question was: Where does the VOV come
    in [to play] and what use is it to me? In a very broad and
    general context, the VOV concept is concerned with a
    couple of vital issues. First, it reports on the relative…[Read more]

    Mr. Stan. I humbly and most graciously apologize for
    disturbing or annoying you. My intent is merely to further
    examine the VOV concept that you too seem to be
    following quite closely. I have reviewed a number of your
    posts and you certainly give the impression that you can
    and want to further the aims of Six Sigma through critical…[Read more]

    Mr./Ms. Bradley. Are you also a Doctor of Philosophy?
    Please inform me so that I can address you by this proper
    and distinctive title. This degree is highly prestigious and
    deserves full recognition for all those that are so
    accomplished. From your recent post, it would appear
    that you might have a strong capability to provide some…[Read more]
