    Newbee,
     
    I have a question for you.  Why do you pose a question to which you appear to have already formulated an answer and then shoot down those that offer their input when it opposes the answer that you are apparently looking for?
     
    Just curious…
     By the way, my friends at Aircraft Engines offer a different opinion than what you do.  But then I guess that they must be working for a different GE than what you refer to.

    Phil,
    I’m curious, are you amongst the same group that also believes Bush really didn’t win this election because the election results didn’t match the exit polls???
    Keep striving for the status quo…

    Interesting. I’ve been in the midst of a failure analysis where the supplier reported that their Cpk, etc data refuted our hypothesis of failure cause and pointed us in other ‘possible’ directions – which we’ve expended time, resources and cost investigating. However, we’re not inclined to completely rule-out the supplier simply because we aren’t setup to measure it. Since we’ve ruled out most everything else, and this is seemingly all that remains, we’re having parts made by another supplier to the same requirements. This is new technology for the other supplier, but they are eager to try it and thus far we’re seeing very promising results; while their data suggests lower process capability and more defects than the current supplier, the parts they are yielding to us perform much better and we as well as our customer are willing to pay a higher cost for this new initial investment with a supplier who has now contracted with us to show continuous improvement. They have even recommended changes to the requirements specifying datums and restraint conditions that might better control the measurement of the characteristic relative to its intended interface in our application; they’ve taught as a bit more about GD&T and functional test on this product than we ever knew, so there’s a qualitive ROI that we believe is more than we get with the current supplier. Despite some shortcomings in our design requirements, as the new supplier has pointed out, we have enlisted the help from an independent lab to inspect the current suppliers parts and he is convinced we can show that they have failed to measure the parts according to our requirements and thus prove liability – which we intend to add the cost of failure analysis, which includes the rabit trails the supplier sent us down, as well as drop them altogether based on our new, eager, source of supply.
