    Dave,
    There’s no doubt about it in my mind — iSixSigma is by far the easiest publishing company to work with by far. I have published a few articles (you can search for my name on the site to read some), and every time is a pleasure. They communicate well, deal with me as a person (not a number) and actually care about the industry they work in.
    I also like working with iSixSigma, as opposed to other publishing companies, because I maintain the copyright to my articles and grant them a license to use it. It provides me more options in the future — I’m amazed that so many other authors gladly hand over the copyrights and then have to purchase back rights to reprint it! It’s amazing. I like the way iSixSigma works.
    You can read more about publishing on iSixSigma here: https://www.isixsigma.com/submit/
    From what I understand, iSixSigma has the largest reader base of any Six Sigma publishing company. If you’re looking to publish ISO or TQM articles, however, this is not the place.
    Good luck!

    Problem: The X-ray film was accidentally reversed when viewed by the doctors, leading the doctors to operate on the wrong side.
    Poka Yoke Solution: My solution is to create a situation where the doctor cannot reverse the film when viewing. I’m not in the medical industry, but I’m going to make some assumptions about how things work in my solution.
    Since the film must load into the X-ray camera in only one manner (assumption…you can’t load it upside down or backwards, etc.), require the film manufacturers to print “CAN YOU READ THIS?” (or something similar) in big letters on a majority of the film. This will serve as a visual confirmation to the doctor to prevent the film from being reversed. Otherwise they would see the inverse of “CAN YOU READ THIS?” and, being the brilliant minds that they are, would reverse the film for reading.
    Is this fool-proof enough? Maybe not…what are your ideas?
