  • In my view here is what has happened to my philosophy of quality.
    Six Sigma tools when I learned it in 1983 were the tools in a course called “Advanced Diagnostic Tools for Engineers and Scientist”. I was not able to take this training until I learned basic quality tools and quality management. Because I had a strong foundation in basic quality…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell I accept the apology, but be assured I was not offended. It is our gift and our profession to detect when something is said that does not fit the data we have at hand. Never thought of the pink X thing before but maybe that why this is my favorite Shainin X?! 8 years, 3 months ago

  • @Mike-Carnell I don’t know. I watched the Juran 12 set tapes we had in Seguin 3 times and all the Harry tapes (don’t remember how many) on stats several times. Juran was tough, I think he was 90 when he made them. Harry was young with brown hair and was OK. Just the thought of watching a John tape makes me want to laser myself. I love John but he…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell Mike, it may seem BS to you but I do treat my wife this well. $132.58 for 3 lobsters (there is 3 people) and I cook, them and crack them open for her so she just gets the lobster and I make all the trimmings.
    I’ve never been home enough not to treat her well when I am. In 31 yrs of marriage, my home time has been about 10 yrs.
    8…[Read more]

  • It’s Jung, I spelled it wrong in the original. I know who would believe. 8 years, 3 months ago

  • I left out John Lupienski and Steve Zinkraff above. To me John was the definitive master of process assessment and it was great learning from him. I hired Steve into Seguin because all I knew were the 7 basic tools and knew we needed allot more sophisticated tools for the problems we had. Steve was a Navy Reserves friend of mine who was also an…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell Actually she is making me make her a full lobster dinner tonight to prove the point of making her happy.
    My laser doesn’t work, so you are safe. Canadians and Cubans are OK anyway if you don’t talk on your cell phone while driving. 8 years, 3 months ago

  • @Mike-Carnell Actually Texas is quit Jung in the counseling. The whole gun and laser thing is just a face persona thing. I’m really quite passive but not Young. 8 years, 3 months ago

  • @PraveenGupta @KatieBarry Katie, I appreciate your comments on etiquette. I like it when Gary or Mike or that Darth Vader guy on this site kicks my but with strong and slanderous words when I say something not to their liking. It is the only way they can get through to a strong willed person like me. I have a Masters Degree in Psychology and went…[Read more]

  • Well, I do not consider myself an expert at anything but I think I might be running the risk that people will say I am an expert at having my wife say I am a nice guy and that we are soul mates in our relationship. Anyone who knows me in the business world would not say I am a nice guy nor very good at developing business relationships. I don’t…[Read more]

  • @MBBinWI Fortunately, i take medication for my road rage thinking…. 8 years, 3 months ago

  • @ Mike-Carnell I resent your totally outrages claim that senior managers have no integrity. When I was VP at that big retailer chain all of my senior management buddies had total integrity. We did absolutely no […] 8 years, 3 months ago

  • Thomas Whitney changed their profile picture 8 years, 3 months ago

  • @dushyantthatte Q1. The top level for a factory metric is always the output measure. Any business is in business to make stuff. And all factories are built to a capacity to make enough of the stuff to make money. Someone sets that amount and the factory needs to build it. So, the measure is always how much stuff your expected to make per day…[Read more]

  • @Stevo I’m going to try and not go into another long rant, which I would if I didn’t need to type it out but let me change your words a little. The line people are ignored because most exempts are too arrogant to listen to them or think it is below themselves to go mingle with them.
    There is not one, not one major breakthrough I have been a part…[Read more]

  • @Mike-Carnell I didn’t keep my control charts I did by hand, but I also remember being able to look at a list of numbers and tell you the average and standard deviation cause I hand calculated these values so often. I bought a little machine that I could type in the numbers and it printed out control charts about 3 inches wide like a ticker tape…[Read more]

  • @cseider Nice to hear from you again. Thanks for the compliment, but I couldn’t have done so much if the CI team whern’t one of the best with whomI have ever worked. 8 years, 3 months ago

  • For those that have read the GOAL, MBBinWI reminded me of my one line summation of the book, ” Where is Herbie now?”
    I absolutely agree with MBBinWI summation of how all the tools and methods fit together. I tend to encourage the total package of CI project deployment to follow the general sequence : Stability, Shape and Throughput (constraint…[Read more]

  • I am suggesting that working projects independent of each other or with respect to their affect on the significant variation of KPO variables is not an efficient way to fix the whole business system. Any given successful project will fix a part of the business system, but it may not lead to a breakthrough improvement in the KPO variable and may…[Read more]

  • I just happen to be writing a white paper on this subject so I will give you my observations on the subject of why LSS deployments so often have issues to failures. Hopefully, what to do different part of the white paper will be out soon.

    The most common mistake made in Lean Six Sigma (LSS) deployments is after the assessment process most of…[Read more]
