  • @cseider Just for clarification are you suggesting not check nor fixing the measurement system and just running nonparametric tests instead?

  • @rheaestrael Probably not much different answer than @Robert Butler or @cseider. You take everything you can get as far back as you can get it and plot it. No nonsense control chart stuff just a plain time series plot and look at it for patterns, trends, runs, shifts and cycles. Then you mark the things Robert suggested where the process has…[Read more]

  • @cseider Let’s see if I draw a line and mark 0 then mark off 1-10 at equal intervals on the line and then mark 3, 4.5 and 6 I might get a clue. 1 year, 5 months ago

  • @pratikpawar8888 Welcome to! There’s lots of good information on the site.

    It looks like you didn’t take advantage of our search function, but in answer to your questions, here are links to sections on:

  • @Youssef_DO The advice about measuring emotions is a good start but mare complicated than that. You need to have a measurement system that is precise and accurate. That is MSA. If you cannot apply MSA and get an acceptable result on the analysis then you are wasting everyone’s time trying to apply Six Sigma.

    There is a reason that rulers are not…[Read more]

  • You need to take this a piece at a time, Start with you last question “moreover is 6 standard deviations greater or lesser than 3 standard deviations in the normal distribution?” If you cannot answer this or understand this then the discussion od control limits and spec limits will never make any sense to you. 1 year, 6 months ago

  • tapiseniryan That is a question that sounds very profound on some esoteric level. What does it actually mean? Let’s say we do some research and find out that your bachelors degree in a particular subject has an average placement rate of a certain percentage. It has a mean starting salary with a standard deviation. There should be benchmarks that…[Read more]

  • @tapiseniryan Did you search our site before asking your question? We have an education section of content: 1 year, 6 months ago

  • @irfan.ahanger01 What do you think you should do? Our audience is extremely helpful but they’re much more likely to respond if you share your thoughts on your proposed approach first.

    If you haven’t already, you may want to check out our sampling section of content:

  • @rbutler and @darth — If you look at the newsletter, I’ve been sharing “Classic iSixSigma” discussions the past couple of weeks. This is one of them.

    As for any others, one was spam that I deleted as soon as I saw it. 1 year, 6 months ago

  • @rbutler  Glad it isn’t just me.  People must be so bored that they are getting back onto (LOL) and so desperate for something to do they are responding to decade old posts.  Next might be responses to test questions or dissertation topics from people who graduated a decade ago.  We might even see someone pop in to comment on the…[Read more]

  • @straydog Definately agree on the amount of work in a QFD from scratch. Not only a lot of assumptions but also the team just gets weary because it is like a very long beating that just won’t stop. I am not a big fan. 1 year, 7 months ago

  • @cseider I have heard the one bite at a time as well. If you remember Brad from South Africa he used to say “invite the whole village.” 1 year, 7 months ago

  • @straydog I started lockdown on March 16. I am on box #3. There is a lot of interesting stuff in those boxes. Actually I thought if I had a high volume scanner I could scan everything 100% and throw it all out faster than what I am doing right now. Books are worse. I have a book from third grade. Now I can’t throw it away or donate it because I…[Read more]

  • @Straydog The 5S is great advice. My wife was working at home for about 6 weeks and that was the first thing she did. Now she has a very nice little nest to work from. I stay away from recommending 5S because it is difficult for me to do. The minute I start to sort I find a lot of very interesting things I have been looking for, for years and I…[Read more]

  • @Timmaaay I don’t normally say anything after Robert @rbutler posts because when it comes to the numbers you aren’t going to get better advice that what you get from Robert. He has this down pretty solid and he understands application not just theory.

    I am not trying to make excuses for who ever wrote the WI. You might want to check out the…[Read more]

  • @saran2383 #1 and #2 are a great start. #3 has nothing to do with Six Sigma. At what point di anyone ever tell you Six Sigma was about an “expert opinion” or worse multi-voting?

    If you are going to take the time and effort to do #1 and #2 do it the way it is meant to be done take data, analyze the data and come up with a solution that the data…[Read more]

  • @Gill.92 There are at a minimum two areas you need to consider. The first of course is the VOC (Voice of the Customer). Asking other people, even SME’s, may be good directionally but you need to speak directly to your customers. Two reasons specifically. First unless you were part of getting the input from the SME you have no idea how they arrived…[Read more]
