    Michael Mead,Do not insist, what you said makes no sense at all. you are suggesting that he increases his sample sizes and runs the capability studies as if the data were normal. And if he is “lucky, they will be high enough that your won’t need to worry about making an out-of-specification product”.Luck should not be invoked here. If you use nonnormal data to run capability studies as if they were normal, you will end up having a Cpk and a Ppk that would be misleading. How about suggesting that he reviews his processes to make sure that they are stable and in control before thinking about conducting a capability study.

    Ramon,I do not think that your problem has been clearly defined. You gave the input factors but you did not define what your output is and 3×3=9 does not mean much. You define your design in terms of full or fractional factorial and in terms of how many factors are involved and how many levels. If you have 3 factors using 3 levels, you will not end up with 9 runs and if you are using a 3 factors 2 level design, you would end up with 8 runs, not 9.Please redefine your problem statement and the factors involved and we might be able to help you.

    Ramon,The wait time does not follow a Poisson distribution, it follows the Exponential distribution. The two are close but different.
    Poisson distribution applies to situations such as the probability for finding a defect on a machine, not the wait time because the time to wait is more of an interval on a continuum.
    If you use Minitab, you should be able to find the distribution that your data follow.
    Why would you want to find the Ppk, if you can find the PPM?
    If you run a Full Factorial design with two levels and 4 factors, you get 16 runs, I do not understand what you mean by 16 Data. If you can be a little more explicit on what you are trying to do, maybe we will be able to help you.

    There is no AQL in Minitab. Control Charts are more often used and more effective than AQL. AQL is not the best tool to ensure that good quality products are delivered to customers.This what you should have told him!

    No, Mikel Harry is the godfather of Six Sigma and Richard Schroeder is his friend and they have written an excellent book call “Six sigma process characterization’ a must read for all six sigma practitioners. A lot of people are very jealous of Dr. Harry because of his great contributions to quality improvement. I would classify him next to Taguchi, Shingo and Deming. He is great.Joe BB

    People are an uncontrollable source of variationΒ – common cause.
    Have the people in the modern method group been assigned using any special classification methods? If so, these inputs could be used to design factors to partition the SS.
    If the people in the two groups have been chosen as random and the desired outcome of the experiment will be to compare the one factor, with two levels Β– e.g. two teaching methods only – with a one variable response Β– e.g. score on a standardized English test, you could use the single factor analysis of variance method to draw your conclusions.
    You would have to ensure that the appropriate number of people have been tested to ensure that you have a statistically valid test – e.g. controlled Type II error.
    If you have historical testing scores available this can be used as an estimate of the standard deviation for the nominal group. e.g. http://nces.ed.gov/dasol/
    With the estimate of standard deviation you can be used to develop the appropriate OC curve for your chosen alpha. JuranΒ’s Quality Handbook has some good information on the subject Β– Determining sample sizes for Testing a Hypothesis.
    Another approach might be to conduct a before and after treatment analysis Β– e.g. administer the standardized test to each group before and after testing Β– in essence blocking the people out of the analysis. This provides an estimate of each teamΒ’s ability before and after. Then you can test the hypothesis that difference in the over all groupΒ’s average increase is significant.

    Good Afternoon,
    Attrition in a call center, my every favorite and never ending problem.
    I have done maybe 5 projects on this and all have had one common factor, you have to specify the type of defect and handle them one at a time.Β  What does this mean you ask?Β  Well since you asked:
    Attrition is a overall output based on a system of x’s, what are the x’s, well I am glad you asked that, each center has their own and this is where you need to apply a team based atmosphere to allow the discussion of things that could effect attrition, and then you need to prove that they do or do not.
    The overall attrition number has two beasts, voluntary and involuntary, both of which need to be handled in seperate subgroups as they are different.
    We instituted a few things to improve our x’s understanding, 1 we started applying reason codes to who quit, second we began calling back after 30 days to get the reason again, this in a sense was our gauge data.Β  Shorlty after applying this rationale we had a breakthrough, the reason why they left when asked the day of was drastically different then the reason they really left, which was more truthful after 30 days.Β  SO we only use post 30 day answers as a rule of thumb.Β  This however was a conclusion we made on the specific nature of the post 30 day to the vauge nature of the day of survey.
    Next we did a pareto looking at the top reason codes, and what did we find?Β  The principal upheld itself and we got a whole new perspective, 80% of attritoin was caused by 20% of the codes.
    The top one was unrealistic job expectation.
    We launched a project just on this.Β  Based on the current HR training system there was a flaw in the fact that they only listened to 3 calls and they were patty cake calls.Β  I can attest from my own expereince years ago on the phones, that most customers are pissed off and not very happy.Β  People were hitting the floor, getting their ass tore up, and disapperaing within a few days.Β  This is what we called the “Hump”Β  once you got over the inital hump of 3 weeks on the floor, this particular reason code became no big deal.
    Our solution:Β  Put them on the phone with a medium level agent in the hardest department of the company, if they quit after this we considered them a postive sucess and we saved x by speding a whole lot less.Β  Sounds kind of crazy and in took a while to convince the managers, but it worked, we cut attrition by 25% just by screening out the people not meant for the work from the Realisitc job Preview step.Β  We showed them what the work was really like and they decieded to persue other avenues, at this point we had only spent about 200 dollars on them (2-3 days worth of work) if we waited till the end of training, we would spend close to 5000.Β  Big difference.
    We had others as well, but they are not cookie cutter solutions and as such you should apply the rigors to your own process.
    Good Luck

    I fully agree with you Mike. I work for a company that has implemented Six Sigma and a vehicle for process improvement. Every project in the company is called a Six Sigma project and they kep posting the results of the projects on a dashboard, the savings seem look great, but you cannot tell that there has been any changes in the production processes, more people are hired to do the same job that fewer people used to do.
    I have no idea where these savings are coming from.
    Lean is the way! Six Sigma is a tool that can help achieve a leaner production process!

    Part of the question was ‘why’.
    If the confidence level is 95%, you compare the p – value (0.06)Β to 0.05, the null hypothesis is: mu =10 at 95% , The p value is therefore greater than 0.05, we cannot reject the null hypothesis.
    At 90% CI, we compare the p -value to 0.1, the p -value is lower than 0.1, therefore we have to reject the null hypothesis at 90% and conclude that there is a significant difference.
    StanBoy was wrong once again!

    Z = (12 – 12.1)/0.05 = -2
    Z = -2 is the same as Z = 2 since the Normal curve is symetric, and Z = 2 corresponds to 0.4772. Since this time we are on the left side of the curve and we want to find the probability for the event to be “less than”, we will not subtracfrom 0.5. The answer isΒ 0.4772 times 100 47.42%

    A sample of 1000 roaches is clearly too big sinceΒ all the roaches are the same. the z formula would appliy here

    This would give you a huge number because of the size of the sample and you will end up with a p-value of 0.

    “Thanks for bringing up cretins which I am proud to one of, especially if you think there is something wrong with them “Quit disrespecting our Prez, you cretin!

    Bob,
    You do not have to cretinize yourself so stupidly.

    Hey StanBoy,
    As you can see, I am still my same old self. The last time you and I argued was when you could not differentiate between a Binomial and a Hypergeometric distribution.Since then you have been posting under a pseudonym because you were ashamed of yourself. Glad to have you back.

    Cretins are born cretins and they will die cretins.

    Jealousy my friend! Some people are just too envious because they have not enjoyed the popularity Dr Harry has had as a result of his great contributions to quality improvement.
    One of these two individuals had trouble solving an elementary hypergeometric problem but he still is loud mouthing about his abilities to save companies.
    Long live Dr Harry!

    “a nice set of videos complete with me and my handpuppet wearing lipstick “
    I think that “a nice set of videos complete with me wearing lipstick” would have sounded better.
