  • @Cseider I checked the weather before left and it was snowing. I took heavy clothes. It was hot. I spent more time trying to figure out how to cool off. I am sure winter will be a different deal.

  • @Cseider Actually that whole Week 0 was a learning experience for us. Because most of us came from Motorola and the only place outside Motorola we had been asked to do a deployment was Allied Signal (95) the GE and GenCorp in 96 we had to figure out how to do projects with no initial data.

  • I just wouldn’t want harsh winters ;) I had enough in good ol’ Green Bay.

  • At least I got good mentoring and learnin’ in & out of the classroom.

    I still remember thinking “I know this stuff from my experimental design days in college” but luckily the mind was like a sponge…and got to work with folks like yourself to further refine.

    And yes, it’s nice to know what I didn’t know even during those initial 4 weeks….

  • An introspective Marine…

    Thanks for your service on this weekend.

  • @Cseider I was going to say after your “harsh” comment is South Africa it was beginning to cause me to be more introspective (not really but I am sure you knew that).

  • @Snandy If you will Google Hypothesis Testing Flow Chart and then click on images you will find a plethora of hypothesis testing flow charts. Most make it much more complicated that it actually is. The original of this was written in 1995 with Miguel Hernandez and I sitting on the floor in the Barcelona Spain Hilton preparing to teach Analyze to…[Read more]

    LOL, it was compliment. Just meant I know you’re often writing via phone and often during my “rants” I might stray a bit in thinking!

  • @dianaru13 I worked with a man in the 1980’s -1990’s who had 300 college credits and no college degree. He took classes that either interested him or were useful to him. He was one of the best thinkers I have ever known. Take that for what you will.

    This is ASQ. They publish their BOK. Google it for BB and for GB and see if there is a difference.…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Russia is a very interesting place. The architecture is absolutely amazing. It is early to tell but there doesn’t appear to be much BS when you speak to people. Conversations are very direct which makes it perfect for you and me, Not sure how @Cseider would fare in those conversations.

  • @MBBinWI I have never heard you do anything but succinct responses. I even remember a person who sent you an email asking for something and saw your response “Why are you bothering me?” Great response.

    @Cseider Thank you I think. “Surprisingly well written.”

    @JamesM I like it when I have written something that makes people smile. You might like…[Read more]

  • Interesting write up.

    precision of measurements would impact your data tremendously. Recording down to the nearest minute only for call centers would seem to leave some interesting info waiting to be […]

  • don’t forget averaging of averages isn’t technically correct unless the sample size is always the same for each average.

  • @mbbinwi I was impressed it was as well written for a “rant”. Of course, when coming from a wealth of experience it’s easier.

  • just be aware….SOME exams will have “history” questions not related to tools, techniques, or approaches.

    I always wonder why one could certify a BB based partly on whether they can identify that GE is credited with adding D to DMAIC but I can tell you that we at GenCorp/OMNOVA Solutions had created a week 0 of training doing similar stuff…[Read more]

  • @mbbinwi I’m shocked you’d imply someone put together a test question without understanding nuances and breadth of experience. :)

    Having created customer “loved” BB, MBB, and GB exams I can tell you it’s not easy or trivial.

  • @MBBinWI I just got back from Russia so I am a bit jet lagged. @Mike-Cyger and Katie do that news letter where it has most recent discussions. There is always like that one question that just spins you up and you have to write something. So when you are jet lagged and drinking coffee then answering questions just seems like the right thing to do.…[Read more]

  • @kaac87 I will give my thoughts on this and if @dean6294 thinks it is a buzz kill I could care less. You need to remember you came on line asking for help. If you are sensitive and open yourself up to this then that is your issue.

    ISO is not a methodology it is a Quality System Standard. You can begin by reading it. It is short and you will find…[Read more]
