  • 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]

    I swear I replied.

  • Ruben replied to the topic Is My BB Project Too Broad? in the forum Implementation 2 months ago

    @MBBinWI – Thank you so much for your advice!

    but the way, i have a question, My main project is to increase the FTY, in this case i need to improve defectives occurring in this assembly. are those defectives may consider as small projects? i mean there are about 10 process producing defects and i need to stabilize the improvement of those so as…[Read more]

  • @RJHILL1, I have that book by Wheeler on my desk right now, it’s what got me into control charts when I read about it on Mark Graban’s blog a month or two ago. However, it is only about control charts and he advises using Rbar*2.66 as the control limit, not 3 Sigma. It seems like a good intro to quick and dirty control charting but the more I read…[Read more]

  • @djnrempel I agree with @MBBinWI and @straydog. I do not see the logic in using a control chart. If it goes out of control or becomes unstable what are you going to do to bring it back into control or stabilize it? The way I understand this there really isn’t any adjustment to the process.

    Just my opinion.

  • @MBBinWI and @cseider – just to be clear – I didn’t do this. Some statistician with either a lot of time on his/her hands or perhaps one who got tired of reading phrases aimed at attempting to weasel out of the agreed upon significance level, compiled the list. It made its rounds in the stat community several years ago and it is a very long…[Read more]

  • @bigsby I am not sure where I am coming in on this subject with regard to other people posting. Possibly close to @MBBinWI.

    If you interpret stats as cause and effect you are always at risk. Statistics cannot determine that for any certainty. Stats looks at numbers and relationships between numbers. I can generate a lot of sets of random numbers…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Thank you. We have mutual respect. Enjoy the holiday as well. I know you served your time as well.

    Billy and @MBBinWI My view isn’t to far from MBBinWI. There is no point where I look at a certification and say “ok I’ll hire that person.” I see a college degree in the same way. There are places that certify people that when I see that certification I definitely would not hire that person because there are organizations that just certify for the…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI The previously mentioned email was in Tampa.

    Agree this is a special weekend. I do appreciate those people who are/have served maybe more than most. I did my time from 70-73 when Viet Nam was coming to an end. I remember people spitting at us when we were on the street. Different time.

    @Cseider “GO PACK GO”? Really? How inspiring.

  • found it…. hmmm, Green Bay weather is harsher than your SE portion but WI and MN and the whole upper Midwest have kinda cold winters! ;)

    Enjoy your weekend @mbbinwi

    @tgroves-exta loved the part about doing it with them

  • @MBBinWi I lost track of your post about picking on your state but you must remember I believe in the phrase GO PACK GO and saw Mr. Favre play in his first game in Milwaukee stadium–I have fond memories.

  • @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]

  • Chris Seider replied to the topic Anything Really New in LSS? in the forum General 3 months ago

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

  • @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]

  • Mike Carnell replied to the topic Anything Really New in LSS? in the forum General 3 months ago

    @straydog @MBBinWI @Cseider @diboy89@msn.com

    Is there anything new in SS? Should there be? Maybe in its current form there should be but not in its original format. SS was created to be a thought process not a set of tools. If you look at Juran’s book Managerial Breakthrough it distinguishes between the concept of Breakthrough and Control. SS w…[Read more]

  • @johnpeters123 I am going to agree with @straydog for the reason @MBBinWI stated. #4 is takt time which is basic to TPS (which everyone seems to have confused with Lean). That is the number which sets the infamous “drumbeat” they want your production line to run at (dangling participle). The waste aspect is when your line runs the same as the…[Read more]
