  • @MBBinWI

    I have a follow up question how is it that Z/3 = Cp/Cpk if the process is centered? I understand if the process is centered Cp=Cpk and both values of Cpk will be the same. What I dont get is how will that be equal to Z/3 assuming the Z statistic is Z=[X-(mu)]/(sigma)

    Will appreciate a response since I am due to take the CSSBB exam next…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell  @MBBinWI .  I was thinking of forming a new all encompassing accreditation organisation I am calling the “Association of Pragmatic, Enthusiastic, Sociable, Highly Intelligent Teamsters Improvement Organisation” or APESHIT Improvement Organisation for short.

    I think $100 a year subscription should be good.  Would you guys promote th…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI @Andy-Parr Still here. It was very odd bumping into the post. I had been in China and was just getting my email and thing sorted out.

    It is hard to believe you are getting soft. You would have been the last one I would have ever thought would do that. It doesn’t look like this person is really anyone to concern yourself with.

    Happy New…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI seems @stephanieareid is suggesting all your experience just got up and left my friend! 2 years, 10 months ago

  • @MBBinWI from what you stated your experiences seem limited especially when it comes to Lean. I know for a fact it is the best management system to run a company because it encompasses a holistic approach for guaranteed success which six sigma does not do. Toyota and other truly Lean companies can attest to that and you and other naysayers do not…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI My sentiments exactly. It is interesting to see how folks try so hard to marry Lean and six sigma whereas I see them as completely separate. Lean (the Toyota way) is the holistic approach to operating a successful business and six sigma is a tool to be used on specific improvement projects (although I believe it unnecessary to use at…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Good to hear from you as always and very happy you are doing well in the new job. Just swing through and say hello every now and then.

    Has your email changed? It bounces for me. 3 years, 3 months ago

  • @MBBinWI Good to hear you are still learning my friend. I assume, like me they’ll be fastening the box before you stop!


    We do miss your contributions here.  All the best. 3 years, 3 months ago

  • @Andy-Parr @MBBinWI I miss his input on here and I miss working with him. He is a great Mechanical Engineer. Lots of integrity – he does what he says he will do.

    His academic background is impressive which is probably the reason he is so tough on homework. 3 years, 3 months ago

  • @Mike-Carnell we’re missing @MBBinWI

    His eagle eye and ruthless approach to Homework keeps us all alert! 3 years, 3 months ago

  • @darth @MBBinWI @rbutler — Care to share your story?

    @Mike-Carnell As for me, well, I’m not entirely sure I count since I’m an editor and not a process improvement practitioner, BUT…

  • @MBBinWI Merry Christmas and wishing you and your entire family a very Happy and prosperous New Year.

    Very good to see you posting again. 3 years, 11 months ago

  • @MBBinWI – I sent you an email as I think it will be easier to troubleshoot the “forum listing missing” issue you are experiencing. I’m still not sure I understand it.

    Separate topic: I did want to clarify, clicking on the envelope and group of people in the left sidebar (when signed in) does not do anything right now. However, when you mouseover…[Read more]

  • @rbutler and @mbbinwi i’m sure you’ll help out! i’m tight on time 5 years, 3 months ago

  • I’m trying to understand perspective but to ask the question “what is DMADV” these sound like exam questions or homework or … It’s not like you’re asking “why would Define Measure Analyze Design and Validate be good words chosen for the acronym” which would leave room for discussion. It’s not like it’s hard to find things like…[Read more]
