  • Kirk,
    fine detective work,
    either way i have not heard of this package.
    Kapil,
    tut tut, you seem to be infringing ‘code 2’ the shame……

    Mike,
    I have just e-mailed SB asking if he was Mike Buckle!!
    He probably told you about our communications yesterday!
    Its a difficult situation that you 2 have been put in, if your management team are adamant & will not be budged, then you 2 just need to make it clear (but subtlely) to the management that their plans may not be the best way…[Read more]

    Hi Mike,
    This question is really spooky as i was actually speaking to an ex – work colleague (& friend if its you SB!) just yesterday on this & my advice was to tell the senior management that their hair brained idea of trying to train GB’s without any statsistical tools was doomed to failure from the start…..i notice that you never mentioned…[Read more]

    Very interesting, although there are no real facts behind the main page & once i saw the word ‘pyramid’ i thought “close”
    i particularly liked the passage “threats, intimidation & fear do not motivate employees” come on, own up – who has been chastising people to;
    A) be part of a project team
    B) try & strengthen their postion in the market by…[Read more]

  • Darth,
    supersized with a box of Nuggets on the side…
    do you finish by saying the obligatory & monotone “your welcome” ?

  • Darth,
    lol, “i am the expert MBB from my company, what do you careabout with our product X?” (reply) “i respect that you are an expert, but would you mind not wearing a fig leaf to the meeting please”
    “ok, i will send along the newest recruit” in walks a guy with an astronaut suit on (or similar full body regalia) “hello, i am the new recruit -…[Read more]

  • Hi Ellis,
    sorry to disappoint that ‘somebody’ but they are clearly wrong…..in a man sized way.
    Think about it.
    eg. a set of random (but ascending)data (for ease of example);
    5,9,9,9,12,13,13,17,19,19,21,24,26
    Median = 13
    Mean = 15 (.076)
    Mode = 9

  • Raman,
    As Stan’s reply suggests, there is no ‘world leader’ for certification, using world class consultancies that are reputable is usually seen as the best way – or being certified by a multinational with good reputation (GE/Motorola/Allied etc) often helps.
    Stan has added another dimension to ‘normal’ 6s training, his phases are D.M.A.I.C.S,…[Read more]

    Hi Mike,
    First & foremost, you need total confidence in your 2 BB’s to deliver the training effectively & professionally, the need to know the training material inside out, as they will be asked questions non stop, if they cannot answer then & there, they have to make sure they come back with an answer ASAP.
    If the 2 BB’s are able to deliver the…[Read more]

    Shame on you all,
    I bet some of you have pasted your sigma calculator onto a PPT show at the end of a project & the sigma value has been eg. 3.46, but you have then put in a callout saying “sigma = 5.2” whilst having the point of the callout covering the 3.46 on the actual calculator, in the hope that no one notices & you quickly skip to the next…[Read more]

    I am glad someone is joining me…..

    John / Darth,
    I was writing the last post as Darth flew in with his reply! very similar (& i like the idea of the np for a week) apart from i forgot to mention c chart……tut tut, having one of them bad hair days
    best of luck in your trial…

  • Jaybee replied to the topic Attribute Charts in the forum General 16 years, 10 months ago

    Hi John,
    Number of different defects on an individual can = U chart, this is an attribute chart for poisson data (no. of defects per sample)
    i.e 1 can = 3 indent/ 2 scratches etc.
    P chart is binomial attribute (good can / bad can) i.e. 125 checked for defective cans, 22 ng from your first inspector(cant be bothered to work out the Proportion…[Read more]

  • of course you are right in that sense!
    back to the tequila & yet another type error for me…..

  • Ray,
    The null = teaching management in stats, the alt was not teaching them the stats / i rejected the null…….
    good luck in showing them ‘the light’
    Jaybee…

  • Ray – the real deal,
    I reject your null hypothesis,
    I suspect that people that have been in the game 5 / 10 years + (30 years may be a little bit long – even for Stan) still use stats to make decisions.
    I also reject the null that management need to know the stats, they don’t want to be overburdened with figures, bottom line is usually enough…[Read more]
