This is a very interesting question. I think it can be approached in a few different ways. First – if the supplier is sampling less than 100% of the parts AND if the % of defectives is significantly high, then it may not be necessary to sample more parts. The reason being, there would already be significant opportunity for improvement. On…[Read more]
The clarity of the SOX goals are the same level as saying “You should be in compliance”..Not clear enough. Individual managements are left to determine what it means to provide a management attestation of effectiveness of internal controls. The challenge is for the management to come up with an objective definition of what is effective and what is…[Read more]

Your process and it’s deliverables should be able to satisfy each key feature (under committment, ability, measurement, activities and verification) of each KPA. Some deliverables will be project specific and others…[Read more]
Thanks you for your response.
I looked at the article and it deals with Phase Containment or defects per unit (FP or KLOC). This is good for measuring process effectiveness but I am looking more from a process adoption point of view. This will definetly be our next step but at this point we are too new into the process to measure it’s…[Read more]
I have used both softwares and frankly both of them have pretty much the same capabilities. Minitab UI is much simpler to use than JMP, but JMP UI has some fairly sophisticated capabilities which may be useful as your organization matures. I preferred Minitab as a beginner but now tend to like JMP better. You may contact me directly if you need…[Read more]

Unfortunately there is no Rule of Thumb for accepting linearity. Also you should not look only at the slope of the regression line. For the regression line to be meaningful, goodness of fit also should be high. Again, no rule to decide how high is good enough. For linearity, we normally take parts throughout the range of the instrument. Which…[Read more]
