    Hi Gastronic
    I apologize for what I said.  I really thought you were kidding.  I read what you suggested and  I thought it was so convoluted that it wasn’t a serious proposal.  Again I apologize.
    It goes to my mindset about keeping things simple.

    I just started working in a Pharmaceutical company, where do they have Six Sigma?  You have several of them listed.  I don’t think your list has been vetted.
    The FDA just recognized (in 2001) that the Pharmaceutical companies are way behind other manufacturers in process improvements.  Reasons are many but the two big reasons are that the…[Read more]

    Gastronic wrote to Ajun suggesting title for his thesis to be:

  • Hi K
    I think what you wrote about this forum and the responses is right on.  Some individuals always throw in some kind of personal attack at what some questioner ask.  It seems like if someone asked a stupid question then no one should answer right?  But NOOO. 
    Someone recently said to me that this forum is becoming uncomfortable because if…[Read more]

    Hi Arjun
    SSNewby gave you excellent advice but let me give you an alternative advice. 
    Pick a topic that one member on your committee know a little about but not too much about.  Then do everything that they say.  Never mind about that passion stuff you can feed the world later once you get your degree.
    If your interested in a Six Sigma ty…[Read more]

    Hi Stan
    Your basically giving me advice that your not following.  Now your opinion is that somehow I’m not qualified to judge Darth comments but your qualified to judge my comments. 
    The only reason I spoke to Darth’s comment was that I thought this Forum was to foster the spirit of Six Sigma not to stop it at the door.  I thought he had done…[Read more]

    Hi Darth
    Gee, what do you mean by starting off “I don’t know what academic program you were in”.  What is making you say that.  Here’s what I’m reading in your response.
    “Hey buddy I don’t know what planet your from but a dissertation is done this way and no other way cause that’s my philosophy”.  All the other words in between is just a variat…[Read more]

    Hi PB
    I wish I’ve known exactly what my dessertation was going to be about from the start.  I had to change my topic completely.  I couldn’t blame anyone on that one and if someone gave me a suggestion I wouldn’t blame the suggester either. 
    PB, if a Forum member throws out a suggested topic on Six Sigma and Ajun runs with it, then realizes it…[Read more]

    Hi Arjun
    Please don’t be turned off by some people on this forum who sound like their angry or something.  Your going to find that alot of these writers think they know everything there is to know about six sigma  and they’ve been writing in this forum for so long that they think that they belong to some kind of in-crowd so that they think they a…[Read more]

    In most cases I would agree with you but I began thinking of this.  If Matthew John Luke and Mark published their material taking full credit for Christian dogma, then we wouldn’t know about Jesus.  In other words, if a person doesn’t publish and another person does, then that is proof that the person publishing the material is the person resp…[Read more]

    Hi Andy
    I’m happy that many readers of this forum take a keen interest in the historical development of this very important quality initiative.  My purpose was to just give the Six Sigma community a sense of what went on during those very early and critical years.  I didn’t want to short change Mikel Harry because what he did to define Six Sigm…[Read more]

    Hi Reigle
    I’m sorry, you were right about the printing date.  I incorrectly looked at the lower inside cover where it said copyright.  In the right lower cornor it reads 3-03-88.  I believe the second printing was 1990.  I tried to paint a true picture of this history so if you see that I’m wrong and I agree then I quickly let the Six Sigma…[Read more]

    Hi Reigle
    I’mmm back.  Sorry about this.  I know I promise myself I wouldn’t be doing this but as you know when you write something down you get to thinking about the things you should have mentioned.  Very short.
    After I posted that email message from the Hunchos at headquarters of the Semiconductor Sector (SPS) mentioning Mario’s effort for th…[Read more]

    Hi Reigle
    I keep thinking of that line from Godfather III where Al P. says ” I keep trying to get out but they keep dragging me back in.”
    Well anyway, since you are going to be courteous enough to the Six Sigma community by posting a historical audit trail I though I would post this email I took from the “Machine Process Capability” textbook f…[Read more]

    Hi Reigle
    Your a good guy sticking up for Mikel like you do.  He should buy you dinner.  I’m not going to respond anymore on this matter because the historical perspective has been refined more than before and that was my purpose.
    Someone on this Forum notice that Motorola isn’t the “Quality” giant that it use to be.  Well you and I both know th…[Read more]

    Hi GEG Exec
    Don’t worry about sounding too demeaning, the readers of this Forum will determine that for themselves.  As for me, I know myself well and I’m confident enough that I just brush it off if I believe someone was trying to pull one on me.  In other words, be demeaning if you wish it’s OK.  But it seems like you guys keep sounding that wa…[Read more]

    Hi Mike
    Giving most of the credit to Mario Perez Wilson is a fair assessment.  The reason for my point of view is that the process improvement effort that was going on in the Small Signal Div of Motorola during the period of 1987 and beyond was all due to Mario.  When Motorola Six Sigma Institute was created the MPCpS methodology was well es…[Read more]

    Hi ssmbb The book I think is the best for process characterization is the original book that got everything started at the Signal Div of Motorola Semiconductor and that is the “Machine/Process Characterization Study-A Five Stage Methodology for Optimizing Process”. That book has been revised many times since it’s inception and is one of the best…[Read more]

  • Orlando replied to the topic Six Sigma ROI in the forum General 17 years, 8 months ago

    Yes, Terry this is very helpful.
    What we are trying to do here is to compare each dollar invested on Six  Sigma, what had been the benefit. Example invest 1 dollar return 2 and this links you send helps me as a guideline to see what cost related to Six Sigma needs to be consider against the return
