  • Kenny replied to the topic ASQ CSSBB in the forum Europe 15 years, 5 months ago

    As someone who teaches ASQ material within a university/ industry partnership program I can add to Angelina’s comments by saying that the requirements of passing the ASQ certification examination far exceed anything that you would typically be asked to achieve in an industry based training scheme. There are no computers in the ASQ exam; ANOVA…[Read more]

  • Mike,
    I guess the classic 6S response of ‘it depends’ really applies here as the individual situation will determine the duration of the project. Use of Project Management techniques (network scheduling, Gantt charts) could help but really you & your steering committee would need to evaluate each project & agree a timeline.
    As a rough & ready…[Read more]

    Hi..I am new to MSA, and am doing some own studies.
    I noticed that most tests are made on 10-3-3 version (10 parts, 3 appraisers, 3 trials). I was wondering whether there are other combinations (eg 5-2-2, 20-4-6..). Plus, can the 10-3-3 formulas/calculations applied to those other versions? How about the constant values of K1, K2 and K3 ?

    I have just finished Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and three activities (1 BB project, 1 VSM, and 1 Kaizen Event) in order to get BB certified.

  • Kenny replied to the topic Attribute : Negative LCL in the forum General 20 years, 6 months ago

    Thanks Erik.
    My mistake, the formula should be
      LCLp = pBar-3*(pBar(1-pBar))^0.5/n^0.5
    From the formula, LCL can be negative if pBar is small or n is small.
    Just like to know, if LCL is negative, what can i do ?
    What is requirement of binomial ?

  • Sorry if my question confuse you all.
    What i want to say is that,    1) at initial stage, without collect any data, i fix Cp and the spec torelance, i calc the Std_Dev.   2) i calc RBar from Std_Dev.  (RBar=d2*Std_Dev)   3) and i calc A2*RBar from RBar.
    So, can i use “this” A2*RBar as economic control limit at initial stage ?Or Is there any…[Read more]
