  • @Straydog – Is there really anything “new?” 4 years, 6 months ago

  • @kaac87 – and from where did you receive your “certification?” You might want to ask for your money back. 4 years, 6 months ago

  • @johnpeters123 – none of these statements “best describes Lean.” Lean is about eliminating waste. While producing at the rate of customer demand is called Takt time, which is a component of a lean production system, it isn’t specifically Lean. Likewise, reducing variation is a fundamental aspect of Six Sigma, but doesn’t necessarily mean that…[Read more]

  • @DeanOK1969 – as @straydog identifies, Spec Limits have nothing to do with control limits. Your spec is what the customer will find acceptable. Thus, why would your customer not be more satisfied with outcomes above 90%? There should be no upper limit on the spec in this case. The data itself will determine your control limits, you don’t “set”…[Read more]

  • @Straydog – if the physical transformation requiring the time is unacceptable, that identifies a need to search for a different technology or different way to satisfy the requirements. This may exist, or may not, in which case a research project may be needed. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • @8sigma – depending on where your data lies compared to the boundary condition (in this case the lower bound being zero), you may or may not have a distribution that is reasonably normal. If very close to the boundary (as yours appears to be), you at the very least have a clipped distribution (this would occur when you have an actual normal…[Read more]

  • @cseider – precisely correct, my friend. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • @sambit.ximb – sorry, no attached file. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • @YNot – Ideally what you would want to do is construct samples that have known and distinct defects – in this case reduced signal output at specific levels. You still want to have the operators in the system as they may hook up the boards differently, with different connection seating for example. Your MSA isn’t specifically looking at the…[Read more]

  • Theoretically, yes. However, if they were truly not working and waiting on answers, then this is not only inefficient, but wasteful. At the very least, they should be doing some training or other useful activity during such periods. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • Ramesh: You would normally perform an FMEA on a process not on the entity as a whole. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • @JamesM – I agree with @rbutler that a graphical answer results in a negative number (see attached graph). However, solving the regression equation with Dia of 6.96 gives a result well below the graphical answer. I’m going to ask @mparet to chime in, as this is a Minitab question. 4 years, 7 months ago

  • @Pravin25 – you first should understand the cause of the spikes. Are these due to special causes, and thus are another process, or are they built into the existing process. Do these spikes, for example, coincide with a time of month, shift, weather phenomenon? Or is it a situation where some number build up, and there is a push on to reduce, so…[Read more]

  • @veejayshan – I can’t share an example, but can suggest some actions that you might want to take.

    – Have you benchmarked the various projects and methods that were used to develop the capital estimates?

    – What variability is there for the same individual/group in creating the capital estimates? Are there some individuals/groups that are…[Read more]

  • @Vidhya30 – I’m not sure exactly what you are asking, but here are some thoughts. Just for reference, I’ve spent the past 8 yrs or so working primarily with large and small food processors – everything from cheese blocks and shredded cheese, to single serve coffee products, individual drinks, to cold cuts and smoked meats. I’ve also worked in…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell – correct. While my response might have seemed flippant (and quite frankly, it was), as @katiebarry identified, there is no single tool. You must identify the problem, and then select the appropriate tool. None of them address every problem. I could have just as correctly responded “all of them.” As you coach, @ravikumar0423,…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell – good to see you back. Hope all is well with you. 4 years, 7 months ago
