    Hi:
    I have found that using Stepwise Multiple Regression with all the X’s in the Model along with Two Factor Interactions of those X’s is a useful tool to begin the screen of multiple X’s (some of which may be co-linear). Stepwise Regression is a natural way to identify & remove co-linear X’s from the model. Hope this helps. Have a great day, Tony

    Hi Reinaldo:
    I believe your question pertains to monitoring Key Process input variables that determine your Process Output. If this is the case, then I would monitor only those Key process Input Variables that significantly deterimine your Key process Output Variable. Typically, Multiple Regression Analysis or formal Design of Experiments are used to determine which process variables are Key.
    As to the Key Output variable, I would Control Chart this until I was satisfied that in controlling the identified Key Process Variables, my Key Output variable remains well behaved. Thereafter, you might want to revert to a periodic audit sample of the Output.
    Hope this is of some help!! Have a great day, Tony

    Yes a class project assignment.
    The mean is 21.1935 . The standard deviation is 6.9013 . I am having trouble figuring out how to calculate the correct expected variation + or – 3 standard deviations from the mean. So far every answer I have given is wrong. The last hint from the instructor was: my mean is correct, my standard deviation is correct but my lower and higher points are not. Then he hinted: How wide do I beleive this distrubution is? In essence how far to the right and how far to the left do I have..(I think is what he is looking for)

    During 6 sigma training, I present the concepts of Taguchi’s loss function to stress that, although inevitable, any variation is bad and has some resulting effect on customer satifaction and therefore cost of poor quality. The message is “never stop reducing variation if it is still possible within obvious commercial constraints”
    I agree with trevor – application of all you have mentioned is too complex for all but very sophisticated environments and I would focus on the concepts and principles in an attempt to gain some incremental benefits.

    Calculating capacity is very easy once you know 2 things: Volume and Productivity.
    Here’s a simple equation:
    P(roductivity)= V(olume)/TM (Team Member)*H(ours)
    The first step is know the maximum hourly productive of the Team Members (TM), (e.g.) if TM 1 has an hrly productivity of 8, TM 2 is 6, and TM 3 is 4 – then (assuming that each TM is equally trained) the hrly productivity rate is 8. Therefore, the Team ought to be able to do 24 tasks an hr. or 192 per day.
    To accomodate more volume, you either going to need more TMs, more hours or more productivity.
    You’re a self-employed wigget maker and you’re making 8 wiggets a day (1 per hr). Your customer now wants 16 wiggets per day. What are your chioces? You can hire another TM; or you can work 16 hrs; or find a way to increase productivity to 2 an hour – this is where process improvement becomes so important.

    I agree with Daves point. There is a non-linear relationaship between dBm and mW and the distribution of the data in each type of unit should be explored to ensure normality by transformation if necessary. At the end of the day “which unit of measure is most important to the customer – dBm of mV”? That is the one that should be used.

    I agree that at the “company” level there are no Six Sigma performers.  However, if you look at processes, there are many.
    One of the classic examples is aircraft safety as defined by number of passenger flights without casualties vs total flights taken.  This process is much higher than Six Sigma, and we wouldn’t tolerate much less.  Baggage handling – same industry – about 3 Sigma (more or less depending on which year you look at).
    Quality (and safety) are engineered into aircraft, and can also be incorporated into baggage handling given the right priority.

    Here is an older example:
    Suppliers: Cain, Abel
    Customer: God
    Specification: Animal offering (blood sacrifice)
    Customer received from Cain: Fruit of the ground
    Customer received from Abel: Animal offering
    Result: Abel’s offering accepted, Cain’s offering rejected
    COPQ: Jealousy–> murder–> Cain cursed by God
    Lesson:  Know your customer’s CTQs.

    I totally agree.
    A wise MBB taught us that correlation does NOT imply causation.  High correlation between two variables means you need to dig deeper.  You need DOE or other tools to verify cause and effect relationships.
    Another great example of jumping the gun on correlation:  A large city newspaper once reported that fires which caused the most amount of damage had the most number of firefighters on the scene (implying more firefighters cause more damage), when in fact it was the size of the fire that caused both.
    BTW, my current company is including Change Management and Project Management in our Green Belt curriculum.

    To add to the other comments, I would suggest also plotting the data on say Individual & Moving Range Type Control Charts if appropriate for your process. Then examine the plots as to the presence of any assignable cause(s) which might explain the unanticipated lack of Normality in your data. Good luck, Tony

    Guys..
    I thought this forum provide insights. A good place to get genuinue feedback.
    Yes, I got the answer, value of IQF, etc.,
    But guess what the reputation that i had about some like Stans, Darths or the world is gone by now.
    Six Sigma is evolving & variation is part of life. It is understandable that some have higher standards than others. A jungle should have tigers, lions, elephants , snakes, deers, etc. to have an balance.
    Probably IQF is the deers and consulting firms that Stan & Darth are the lions..
    Stan, Darth …. i want to get certified by the lions of the world… Do you certify? what is the criteria ? By how much will it burn my vallet

    Assuming Normality and Stability of the process data, I would expect that the overall yield experienced would be lower than that yield projected by Cp or Cpk statistics since we can view the overall yield as being ‘long term’ based upon ‘long term variability’ as compared to classical Cp and Cpk statistics which are based upon short term variability. In a nutshell, Long term variability > = short term variability. You might want to investigate the Pp and Ppk statistics which are based upon long term variability estimates and compare the projected yields from these statistics  to that which you have experienced.  Hope the above helps.  Tony

    You are right! You must determine the logic relation ship between” X”s and “Y”.  For an example, when the sun rises, the rooster begin to crow. We can not say “rooster crow” is the reason of “sun rise” . But we can say ” sun rise” leads to ” rooster crow”. And make sure of that “X”s are independent.

    Kipper, you definatly need to sit back and take it all in for starters. Take some notes on how things are done and then start asking Why ? when you get the answers be on the lookout for “thats just the way we have always done it”. If there is no other reason, I have found that is a good place to start looking for improvements.

    Check out isixsigma magazine, http://www.isixsigma-magazine.com/. I received a copy for being an isssp member and it has a section devoted to ‘final reports’. They show you what the PPT slides look like as well as discuss what topics should be discussed. It’s pretty decent.
    Aside from that, the only resource I’ve found are other presentations at my own company. The problem is that I have to weed through the good ones and bad ones and then tend to be more of the latter than the prior, unfortunately.

    Hi Mjones:
         Yes! I agree you. We should do further analysis about block if it is significant, such as act it as a factor then do DOE analysis, or get detail difference in block using graph or other simply statistic tool…
       But, unfortunately sometime, we can do nothing on it even it is a significant factor also. What should we do then? I think Taguchi can handle it, act block factor as noise and analysis S/N ratio then find optimize setting. But what should we in normal DOE, is the method I mentioned before right?

        But, sometimes, the block is real uncontrolled and we can do nothing on it. And someone told me just has a simple way to deal it:
    1/Design the DOE and implement it with the consideration of block;
    2/After we finished the DOE with the block included, just ignore block item and do DOE analysis without block items;
    3/Then we can use DOE responser optimizer to get out target/max/min.
          And he also said block can get the same result and handle the same function of Taguchi.
         Do you agree?

       And you mean we can use binary logistic reression for attribute DOE anaylysis, but can binary logistic reression  provide us both critical Xs and  the best setting for excellent output performance, would you pls send a copy of binary logistic reression sample to me? My email address is [email protected]. Thank you firstly!
       Can you have a further explanation about “Generalized Linear Models” (unfortunately, I have not  Montgomery’s Design and Analysis of Experiments  on my hand or in my locak labrary)? Does “data transformation ”  you mentioned is Stat > Control Charts > Box-Cox Transformation. And do you mean we can transfer  the attribute data to variable then go to the normal DOE analysis?
       Tks!

    Darth:
    Thanks for your feedback first!
    Do you mean we need not do anything about confounding for it is nature when we do the factorial design for cost and experiment situation reason?
    And can you have some explain about interaction?

    Hi mjones:
        Thank for your instruction very nuch, and I am a BB, but we get training from consultant firms and we have no MBB, so I may ask you some basic concept.
        For interaction, do you mean Minitab can not do any further analysis when we doing anove or DOE? What can we do is go to real process and find solution with our process knowledge? But we always go to statistic for lack of process knowledge.
       For the confounding, do you mean we need more experiments on it to avoid confounding?
       Look forward to your answer! Tks!

    Hi: 
       Just as mjones said in previous,  the test looks at the two distributions and compares them.
       For the one sample T, we simulate a distribution and compare to our target mean, if the mean is in the confidence interval, we can determine it is insignificant ,otherwise significant.
       Is it right, and can somebody expand it to two sample T test?
      Tks!

    Hi Barb.If you haven’t done so already, I recommend that you complete a detailed process flow diagram of the turnover process.  This will identify bottlenecks, delays, rework, etc.  Also, the complexity of the process can also be an eye-opener for your team members.  From there, I would move on to an FMEA.  That seemed to work well in my OR project.  Identifying the steps of the process that can fail and potentially lead to significant turnover delays can be a real breakthrough for your project.Hope that helps.

    I’ll first make the disclaimer that this was my initial BB project, and I would do some things differently if I were to do it again.
    With that being said, I used most of the traditional Six Sigma tools.  The FMEA was particularly helpful in identifying steps of the process that caused delays in TAT.  The team collected additional data surrounding case cart completeness and sterility.  We identified both of these factors as significant Xs.  The case cart issue has now become its own Six Sigma project.
    We also collected data on several time segments within the OR, i.e. room available to cleaning arrival, cleaning time, room ready to pt. in, etc.  This shed some light on Anesthesia’s influence on the TAT.
    If you have access to the Healthcare Advisory Board, I would recommend looking at some of their materials regarding OR efficiency and TAT.

    Michele,
    My training project to become a BB dealt with reducing the turnaround time between cases in the OR.  We found that Processing and Anesthesia issues were our biggest factors.

    Thanks a lot. But I still feel difficult where to start.
    So far, I have a big challenge to shorten supplier’s leadtime.
    For the critical suppliers, I have provided enough forecast and confirmed weekly PO, how to ensure they shorten the leadtime?
    If so, how to define.
    A good beginning is an half success.

    We have done a lot of work in that area. To address your points:
    – to improve (reduce variability and injury rates) your production system, I suggest determining the root causes of the lifting problem with an appropriate manual material handling analyisis tool, and removing the causes. You should also be able to tie in your improvement idea to lean through a reduction in wasted motion and then subsequently calculate a ROI.
    – awareness and training are helpful, but no matter how you tell someone to lift a 200 lb object off the end of the conveyor, there’s still a problem there. Awareness and training should be focussed on use of the improvement (lift assist).
    – implementation of the improvement needs to be completed through a job improvement process so that no other issues are missed (or created). Most ergonomic improvement tools nicely fit in the DMAIC framework, so a proven approach can be utilized.
    Hope that helps.

    Why won’t your teacher help you? Why do you think that is? Do you think that if your teacher thought you had actually given it the “college try” that s/he would give you a pointer? Perhaps you’re just looking for the easy way out of this situation instead of actually learning to appreciate the finer points. Give it some thought and be honest with yourself.

    Is this the state of education today? Having to post your question to a forum for help? Why don’t you try working it on your own? You’re never going to learn anything by asking others for the answers. Have you heard of office hours…they’re trained to help teach you topics, not give you the answers. Shame on you for asking the forum to do your homework. That’s not the purpose of this space.

    It is very typical to gather data in Measure, then move on to Analyze and look at the data — root causes and all — only to realize that you need more data, or didn’t collect all the data you need to determine your root causes. This is especially true on GB projects where the BB or MBB coach is not fully engaged in the project definition and data collection plan creation. Don’t fret — just be pleased that you realized that you need more information. It’s a learning curve!

    Are you looking for dashboard software, or project management software? Or both? It sounds like just process management, so check out ProjX and Instatis. I think they may be able to meet your needs. Otherwise, I think someone with database skills in your IT department might be able to point you in the right direction.

    I really like the analogy!  Just for the sake of further discussion and “deeper” understanding, if a DOE were to be conducted what could the high and low settings be for the two factors water and temperature.  I foresee temperature settings being hot (+) and cold (-), but how would we deal with water being wet (+) or dry (-) ??
