@kathilee I don’t know what a “huge” definition is. I would suggest you be far more specific about what you’re looking for and why.
And explain why and how what’s already on the site (and internet in general) isn’t providing what you want.

@kathilee It looks like you didn’t search the site before asking this question. A simple search should answer this question for you.
@fausto.galetto :) “Right” is spelled the way I typed….not the way in your cute survey.
Yea, I’m “poking the bear” but I think you broke some china in the shop beforehand. FYI, I’ll restate….doing a control chart on MTBF would seem to be a silly tool for practical use. If the valve is truly causing a plurality of downtime–break it do…[Read more]
@ginloen You’ve said you’ve tried to solve this yourself. How? What do you think you’re doing right or wrong? The more details you provide, the more likely you are to get a response. The iSixSigma audience is helpful, but they like to see that someone is putting forth a good-faith effort.
MTBF with a control chart seems like a stretch to me–what kind of control plan would you have? I’d look at pareto of lost time and drill down to the component(s) and fix the issue(s) and see if the pareto of lost time showed a difference.
@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]

@Knowwareman Thanks again for letting us know about the issue. It’s been fixed!

I can only imagine your approach COULD work IF…
1. The model was validated. No model is 100% so direction better be correct and an acceptable magnitude of error isn’t large relative to predictive changes in results. The model implies you apply the factors AS IS and get “close” to actual results. Don’t ask me online (LOL) what close is but…[Read more]

Yes, the power of statistics is to use RANDOM sampling to get population mean estimates and see if you can shift those estimates after process changes. Yes, it could be the same for variation.
@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.
@Sebvlarsen Did you search our site before asking your question? We’ve got a bunch of content on Gage R&R/MSA in our Tools & Templates section: https://www.isixsigma.com/tools-templates/measurement-systems-analysis-msa-gage-rr/
Katie Barry replied to the topic What Is the Role of Six Sigma in the Oil & Gas Industry? in the forum General 2 months, 1 week ago
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]
