  • @cseider – …could be… Happy New Year to you too.   :-) 2 years, 7 months ago

  • Thanks @cseider — you, too! 2 years, 8 months ago

  • Reading between the lines, I’m guessing that you might be troubled by the fact that there doesn’t appear to be a repeatable process, where defined inputs go through defined steps to produce defined outputs.  I had to deal with the same issue in software development.  Everything seems to be a one-off that will never be done again.  But that do…[Read more]

  • @cseider We at least know they did better than the Texas Rangers. That is the interesting thing they play for months to come down to 2 teams that has one winner on a best of 7 games. Whatever happened to participation trophies? 2 years, 10 months ago

  • @katiebarry, @mike-carnell, @cseider, @rbutler.

    You guys are so lame!!!!  CCPS is Center for Chemical Process Safety.  This is not to be confused with EPSC or European Process Safety Center.  We are having a joint conference Oct 1-2 in Frankfurt, Germany.  The recommended hotel is the Maritim Hotel Frankfurt.  Coincidentally, I have stayed ther…[Read more]

  • @cseider i actuall cut and pasted a whole page of acronyms for ccpm. I asked a question with regards to its us in determining how many cows you can put on a certain amount of land. They use the acronym CCPM for that as well. I thought Katie took it down but i just screeed up posting it. 2 years, 11 months ago

  • @cseider – you had to look it up???!!!  What else could CCPS be except Capacitor Charging Power Supply????  A rather esoteric subject but one, I’m sure, that must be of intense interest to some members of the IsixSigma community. 2 years, 11 months ago

  • @blazn007 I have to agree with @cseider that this is a stupid question and poorly constructed.  Lets just walk through some logic. In most cases people have a hypothesis rattling around in their head but realistically you would derive that hypothesis from some pretty low level tools like 5why and fishbone diagrams. So lets say you do a Fishbone…[Read more]

  • @cseider: I agree with you, Chris. I wouldn’t feel comfortable making any kind of final judgement based on 2 or 3 data points on a control chart. I would definitely do my best to get more. However, if, for whatever reason, I couldn’t get more than 3 at that time, then, according to the authors, I could go with it and make inferences about the…[Read more]

  • @cseider @carlisler I am with Chris. I have no idea how you “run to a Cp/Cpk standard.” First if you can’t hold the tolereance when you make the part then you should not be able to get to a 1.66/1.33.  If those are legitimate numbers then that means you did run that well at the time the study was done.

    It the end of the day your variation is…[Read more]

  • @cseider yeah, I think i still need a long way to go,LOL. But thanks for all the answer, I learn six sigma from my company but they did not explain  detail of every part so there are a lot of things that I need to learn by myself to get comprehensive knowledge of six sigma.</p> 3 years ago

  • @ssoe2020 Katie is correct. Most of the regular posters on here will not do your homework for you. If you want to take a shot at it and come back for feedback or help you can get some very talented people that can help you i.e. @RButler, @CSeider, @StrayDog, @Darth etc. @Darth actually loves to help people do their homework.

    The other issue with…[Read more]

  • @cfberardinelli I like the Beatles quote. I did an article for Quality Progress a few years back and threw in a similar quote from The Greatful Dead – “What a long strange trip its’s been.”

    @cseider and @venerableBede Have to agree South Africa was an amazing experience for us all. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    @Ddelisle Yes this is a…[Read more]

  • @Darth and @Cseider I think adding Safety to 5S is a bad move. Here is why. When I met Brad Mills he was the President of BHP Billiton Base Metals. He had a very active safety program basically because mining can be a very dangerous business. When we were talking about deploying Six Sigma he was very clear that SS was going to be his second…[Read more]

  • @cseider I think there is a lot of the public that has no idea there is a system. They are being fed a diet of tools. It is like “while is everyone eating whale blubber at the Arctic Buffet? Because it is the only thing on the menu”

    The last company I saw doing 3S was a company that 30 years ago was a benchmark for “Lean” companies in the US.

    I…[Read more]

  • Okay I see ! @cseider @rbutler Thank you for your replies !
    I thought that could be interesting to discuss about this subject, so thank you for giving me your point of view. 3 years, 1 month ago

  • Thank you for your replies !

    @cseider I’m trying to do this because when I do a test on a component, sometimes it can last 5 min, some other times 2 hours. So if I do a full Gage R&R study, with 3 operators, 10 parts and 3 tries, it will take too much time.
    Yeah I’m aware for the impact on the variation, but I wanted to be sure if this impact…[Read more]

  • In addition to what @cseider said you also do not have independent measurements – you have repeated measures on a single item which means your estimates of variation are going to be much less than the real variation you can expect in your process. 3 years, 1 month ago

  • @katiebarry Not a SS practitioner? Seriously? you run a website that has been pretty much the epicenter of SS world wide for about a decade. Like it or not you are one of us. I knew you had a pretty cool background I just wanted other people to see you as more than an editor.

    @gps1111 1952 doesn’t feel that long ago until you are doing like those…[Read more]

  • @cseider Oh, I got to learn the easy way on Minitab 12! There are lots of continuous improvement professionals that came up through chemical engineering…I think it gives people a process mindset to begin with, and typically involves processes with a certain amount of uncertainty so the statstical aspect feels more natural. 3 years, 2 months ago
