  • Thank you @katieBarry      Trust me, I think I’ve dug within every Green Belt resource there is.  I’m not looking for any short cut.  But, this is driving me crazy.

    Appreciate it!  :-)

  • @farisrodhi Hope this helps you figure it out.

    @KatieBarry Thank you for jumping in and making the connection. Looks like it worked out well.

    @Venerablebede Great job. Knew you were the right person for this. Hopefully it can serve as more of a template for people in general. Some of the financial modeling stuff you see on line is very short…[Read more]

  • @mike-carnell, Thanks for the mention; @KatieBarry thanks for completing the connection.

    @farisrodhi, maybe this would work:

    a) Talk to accounting to see what is the current rate (per kWh) you are paying for electricity – during normal working hours.  Watch out: rates can be different at different times of day.

    b)  Spend several hours during n…[Read more]

  • @Farisrodhi I could give you my version but that is probably not going to be your best answer. If we can get a person @venerablebead to show up he would do this right (@katiebarry I probably got his name wrong – Help?). If that doesn’t work I would call the door manufacturer and have then send a field service person out to figure it out. 2 years,…[Read more]

  • @chebetz, @rbutler and @straydog Just to do one upsmanship I found this site in 2001. I was being sued for violating a noncompete so I couldn’t work for myself. The guy suing me used time as a strategy and dragged these things out trying to run you out of money. It also gave the market time to forget you and move on. I dedicated 4 hours a day to…[Read more]

  • @KatieBarry It is just a function of who has stuff to do. You are a busy person so stuff slips. Me, on the other hand, I am looking for reason to not go out in the heat and mow mu lawn. I will do virtually anything that involves staying in the AC or the river.

    @Michaelcyger I am just waiting to see how many people come back and ask who Mike Cyger…[Read more]

  • @katiebarry Hi Katie, Hope all is well. I was going to respond to this until I reread everything and how old it is. By now, it is probably a failed deployment like so many in Healthcare LOL. I’m big into pharma and healthcare now and know of its challenges. 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]

  • @katiebarry I pretty much figured that. I am still pretty cyber challenged. Thank you for checking. I think yesterdays response was better but I don’t remember exactly what it was. 3 years, 2 months ago

  • @katiebarry , send me a ping to my private email address please. 3 years, 5 months ago

  • @KatieBarry this is not a home work question. I am not asking for a complete solution but a general approach. May be my understanding of concept is weak but that not make my effort less. I have tried several approach which includes following :

    I have tried by calculating the z score for the people using personal transport by assuming n= 70.

  • @cseider: Love the new easier to navigate website with more lean techniques to get to mail, etc. AND love how it’s running more smoothly lately.

    Thank you, Chris! Our team has been working on increasing the speed of the website, and we continue to make this the focus for the near term. Big thanks to @nikolad and @dpacmittal for their efforts. T…[Read more]

  • To add to what @Daniel.S, @KatieBarry, @Mike-Carnell, and @Cseider have said. The posts you have made to this forum present you in the light of someone who expects everyone else to do all of the work for them. Your posts also give the impression that you have neither made any attempt to investigate anything on your own using things like Google…[Read more]

  • @KatieBarry – Then there is no use of this forum if nobody is ready to share their knowledge, lessons learnt, best practices, templates etc. Your statement ‘And although the iSixSigma audience can be extremely helpful, they are not here to do your work for you’ is contradicting. 4 years, 1 month ago

  • @katiebarry on the job always! :)

  • @KatieBarry I almost pinged ya ;) Hope you are doing great. 5 years, 3 months ago

  • @Mike-Carnell – correct. While my response might have seemed flippant (and quite frankly, it was), as @katiebarry identified, there is no single tool. You must identify the problem, and then select the appropriate tool. None of them address every problem. I could have just as correctly responded “all of them.” As you coach, @ravikumar0423,…[Read more]

  • @KatieBarry – time for your alter ego “The Smiling Assassin” to rid us of this scourge me thinks! 5 years, 4 months ago

  • @katiebarry Thanks. Hope they reach out to me so I know who to contact besides my fave Jenn! 5 years, 5 months ago

  • @katiebarry – how does this user have 32 points? Has their userid been hacked and some bot is posting this spam? 5 years, 5 months ago
