@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]
@Rumbero65 You make the assumption that the person loading the parts has no effect. There is probably a good chance you are correct. Just to be sure I would run a hypothesis test just so you have it in your back pocket in case someone asks.
We have had situations like this frequently. I am not sure I am exactly clear on how the test is set up but…[Read more]
@HV1234 I am not sure I understand this completely but let me see if I can help. It has been a very long time since I have used GD&T. When you say that >/= 1.0 is good and 0.5-1.0 is also then in terms of a Cpk they are both within specification. That is about the extent of what you get from Cpk. It really doesn’t explain degrees of goodness. It…[Read more]
@amrlord I am not sure what the point was to the long diatribe but since nobody else wants to answer you I will take a shot at it. Participation in Continuous improvement is not gender, religion, nationality, race, etc. sensitive. The younger generation issue doesn’t change first principles, mechanical engineering, etc. There are courses out there…[Read more]
@AlonzoMosley You asked for peoples input. I gave you my input. I have no obligation to agree with you as you don’t have any obligation to agree with me. Do whatever you want.
It always sounds good “I am working on employee communication.” If you ask and don’t do anything with the input you just did a huge amount of damage to any future…[Read more]
@AlonzoMosley Wecome to the trap “just ask the people on the line.” As you have already found out 1. just because it comes from someone on the line doesn’t mean it is a good idea 2. if you cannot handle the load don’t ask because asking and not doing anything makes it look like you don’t care and that is actually worse than just plain not…[Read more]
@Mario-Perez-Wilson Good morning Mario. Been a very long time my friend. Hope you are doing well.
I have no clue but I will see what I can conjure up. I think after the go round with the guy with the Montgomery thing you may have hit this site when people were less inclined to participate in this but we will see.
NOTE; For those people reading…[Read more]
It is hard to believe you are getting soft. You would have been the last one I would have ever thought would do that. It doesn’t look like this person is really anyone to concern yourself with.
Happy New…[Read more]
I have watched over the years as people claim to be purists and all other kinds of nonsense. The first time I ran into it was a automotive OEM explained to me they where a Taguchi company. Had no idea what that meant until I figured out they only listened to Taguchi design experiments.
Over the years we have has the TQM’ers who have always…[Read more]
@stephanieareid I have not been on this site in a while and just rolled through a couple questions earlier today. I saw your response to MBBinWI. I am not sure how you got to the point that you felt in your obviously narrow view of the world that you could make such an arrogant and condescending remark to MBBinWI. First he has spent a lot of time…[Read more]
@Mrs.Pagan my advice is probably a bit different. I wouldn’t do anything at all for a couple weeks beyond watching and talking to people in casual one on one conversation. Maybe 2 on 1. The last thing you nesd to do is roll in like a new guru there to save them using a bunch of buzz/Japanese words and throwing around tools that nobody gets but…[Read more]
