The Montgomery example appears to be from one of his books published in 1996. He uses the I/MR chart with transformed data to create a control chart of MTBF which is obviously going to not be a normal distribution. Since that time, Minitab has brought out the G and T charts for time between rare events. Po…[Read more]
Haven’t seen a lot of that in the industry. Some folks talk about it but I have not seen anyone actually execute it. On the other hand, I have seen GBs have a requirement for re-certification by having to do another project. Since MBBs and BBs are usually full time, their skills usually don’t deteriorate. There is opportunity for constant eva…[Read more]
I’m sorry that your training example didn’t work out the way you had planned!
Your example reminded me of a lean factory tour video I saw on Youtube recently by Paul Akers, the founder and president of FastCap, based in Ferndale, WA.
Hope the tour gives you some food for thought for your organization.
@sebvlarsen What do YOU think you should do? Why or why not? Be more specific about what problem you’re having and you’re more likely to get a response. People want to see that you’re putting in a good-faith effort to figure out the solution on your own.

OEE is a great tool but not easy to “measure” if loss capturing isn’t credible.
I’ve helped many clients improve 10% output on poorly performing lines by finding either 1) easy to tackle significant loss buckets or 2) just providing instant feedback (even if just hourly) of how production is occurring so management and supervision has a chance to…[Read more]

Consider what you mean by target of 100%.
Your control chart would be great if no losses were assumed and the theoretical output was included–not planned output.
Planned shutdown times should ONLY include times where no one was employed to run the line. Routine maintenance and operator maintenance are still losses.
All calendar time should be included except for unscheduled run time for lack of orders or normal unscheduled time that isn’t manned.
Your scenario would have 24 hours in the…[Read more]

do you have a problem statement and a metric chart(s) that the project champion agrees are measures of success?

@kam221 Did you try searching our site for ideas? A quick search reveals a lot of results for “turnaround time” and “TAT”.

@datasciencedweeb If you are using a software package check it to see if you can list 100% as a boundary.
Have you been to any tournament lately for kids? :) All clear up here for this bud in Dallas but let’s hope recovery goes well for those souls impacted. I shop SOMETIMES at the Home Depot that got destroyed at Forest Ave in Dallas. That store manager that got everyone out and closed the store deserves a med…[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?

I hope certification includes project completions. If that’s the highest pareto of reason, look at the potential causes for project delay/deaths.
