• We have used it to narrow down the factors and model the probabilities of winning/losing proposals based on a variety of factors. The results have been somewhat surprising yet remarkably consistent. A good tool, but it may take a lot of grunt work to get all your data in the right format (it did for us).

  • A couple of examples I’m aware of from work:
    I know that the Air Force is very interested in Six Sigma. As I understand it the whole military is going through a process called “Transformation”, and several of the branches are using Six Sigma tools to help them out.

Since you ususally n…[Read more]
