  • 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.

  • Ramesh: You would normally perform an FMEA on a process not on the entity as a whole.

  • @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.

    @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]

  • @ravikumar0423 – none of them.

  • MBBinWI replied to the topic quality tool in the forum New to Lean Six Sigma 1 week, 2 days ago

    @ravikumar0423 – none of them.

  • @Mike-Carnell – good to see you back. Hope all is well with you.

  • Look at it this way – if you don’t apply CI, your managed services firm is going to continue to charge you the same year after year. You will not eliminate waste, nor streamline processes so that their services being provided are more effective/efficient. While you will be contracting for a service, you will be contracting for more effort (and…[Read more]

  • Peter: It looks like you are learning very basic two-level factorial design of experiments. Search this site (and the web for that matter) on those terms. I’m sure you’ll find plenty of information that will help you learn. If you still have questions, then come back here with specifics and we can clarify.

  • @aabousalem – do you have any statistical software tools available? For example, in Minitab v17, you just use the Stat/Power and Sample Size… and then choose the type of statistical test you are interested in. There is also the ability to get min sample sizes for acceptance sampling plans under the Quality Tools/Acceptance Sampling for… menu.

  • @lausto – From your description, I would imagine that your table was 2×2, defect/no defect on one axis, and hole/no hole on the other. Observed counts should be in each of the 4 cells. If this is what was evaluated, then your analysis was set up the way that I would have set it up.

    Are you evaluating all the components, or sampling? If…[Read more]

  • @astronaut71 – Don’t take this the wrong way, but are you sure you are up to doing this? I’m not sure you understand what you are undertaking. There are measurements to be taken, which will call for conducting a measurement system analysis to ensure they are adequate, as well as conducting the experiments and evaluating the data.

    What you…[Read more]

  • @dean6294 – that’s still a system based on estimation/prediction and not reality. Seems this could be done better. But then what do I know?

  • @pprendeville – have you tried searching the site?
