  • Thanks for your feedback @Andy-Parr and @MBBinWI. It is very useful to hear other opinions as I am new to this.

    To put this into a bit more context:
    This is a finishing cell for a casting process. This cell looks into correcting inspecting individual parts before being sent either to machining or to the customer. Within the cell there are…[Read more]

    @MBBinWi

    Hey my friend and colleague….I wasn’t considering your post when I gave my advice. :)
    You give good advice, sir.

  • Thanks @MBBinWI for the notification.

    Rather than trying to type the formulas here, it’ll be easier to show you where to find them within Minitab. More specifically, choose Help > Methods and Formulas > Contents tab (if you’re not already taken there) > Quality Process and Improvement > Process Capability > Process Capability Normal > under…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI In this case, work safety improvement such as ergonomics or safety permit review, equipment reliability improvement. They happen to be more visible and sentimental to majority of the workforce.

  • Thank you both for your comments @KatieBarry @MBBinWI. By the way this is not “doing my work for me”, I was only trying to start a discussion and get opinion from various professionals.

    Thank you,

  • @abyola It looks like you didn’t search the site before posting your question. You’ll find many answers if you spend some time looking for them.

    As @MBBinWI noted, the iSixSigma audience is not here to do your work for you.

    What do you think the answer is? Why/why not? The more details you provide, the more likely you are to get a response. The…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI – I think logically both approaches sound reasonable and could be justified on alternate grounds. Also that I’m asking a reasonable question for guidance about one very small technical issue as part of a large project. Not asking people to “do work for me” at all.

  • My bad @MBBinWI. I meant you.

    @MBBinWI your turn?

  • @mbbinwi and @mike-carnell

    I’ve never understood the “what should number be of completed root cause analysis” or completed A3’s discussions.

    It’s all a function of individual plant priorities, # of lines per plant, etc.

    You guys answered similarly and eloquently as usual. :)

  • @xbar_bandit I may being doing the math wrong but if you have 200 ppl (that would be 200 people) and 3/4 are experts in A3 then you have about 150 experts. Some basic questions. If they are experts why do they need a coach?

    What is a classic A3 PDCA? Google A3 and click to images. They are in all different shapes and forms. There is no classic.…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Thank you very much for your comment, it helps a lot! This dissertation project is going to kill me LOL. I think I won’t want to hear the term Six Sigma at least for some time once it’s finished :-)

  • @MBBinWI but it keeps me in employment!

  • @MBBinWI – I know but I like a bit of variation from time to time ;-)

    Hi @MBBinWI — I do have a reply I copy/paste so it doesn’t require too much work on my part. Would be nice if the system could automate before that, but I’d probably spend more time filtering out the “okay” posts then it would save me with my copy/paste routine. Thanks for the nice note. Life is good in sunny San Diego! :)

  • @MBBinWI I know im not capturing a true cost of downtime. This is more of a quick overview of which plants are effectively spending their maintenance. Ive calculated an equilibrium point separately for each location and have considered what looks to be the average lag time between negligence with the maint schedule and the site breaking down.

    Mario — As @MBBinWI and @Andy-Parr said, the iSixSigma audience is not here to do your work for you.

    Did you search the site before asking your questions? It’s likely you would have found your answers on your own.

    If you still weren’t sure of the answers, how do you think the problem can/should be solved? If you think you’re doing something…[Read more]

  • Andrew Parr replied to the topic Computing Sigma Score in the forum General 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Mario I can assure you @MBBinWI does know but he worked it out for himself.

    The answers are all on here somewhere but there’s not a BB or MBB on here that got the qualification by getting someone else to answer the questions for them.

    as @KatieBarry would say if she saw your question “have you searched the site first?”

  • MBBinWI replied to the topic Computing Sigma Score in the forum General 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Dee – if you use an individual’s “handle” (the @MBBinWI for me) they will most likely get an e-mail notice that you left a response. In this case, since I haven’t been back on the board in a week, I had no idea you were looking for an answer.

    From the steps you identify in the process, I would say that 3-10 are all waste. Focus on how the…[Read more]
