Six Sigma heven definition: I stated it not so clearly. Six Sigma Heaven is when the Y variable shifts from a statistically high/low value to a statistically low/high value in just up to 3 to 4 data points. This […]
Good class presentation. I wish that the the finding of possible X factors for the reason for statistical shifts in the Y variable would be more emphasized. Selecting rational sub groups attempts to minimize […]
Fantastic article and great lessoned learned. Every project lead need always visit the process and people to truly understand where, why and how data is collected. That is what is the data telling you! Data is […]
Ok everybody, I must say I love the discussion on all this statistical philosophy. But, I worked in the insurance field for a long time and understand that the management in these fields, most transactional […]
What Lean Six Sigma Deployments Do Not Address
Too often companies deploy a Lean Six Sigma effort with a mind that the Lean Six Sigma deployment will address all of the quality systems…[Read more]
In my view here is what has happened to my philosophy of quality.
Six Sigma tools when I learned it in 1983 were the tools in a course called “Advanced Diagnostic Tools for Engineers and Scientist”. I was not able to take this training until I learned basic quality tools and quality management. Because I had a strong foundation in basic quality…[Read more]
@Mike-Carnell I accept the apology, but be assured I was not offended. It is our gift and our profession to detect when something is said that does not fit the data we have at hand. Never thought of the pink X thing before but maybe that why this is my favorite Shainin X?!
@Mike-Carnell I don’t know. I watched the Juran 12 set tapes we had in Seguin 3 times and all the Harry tapes (don’t remember how many) on stats several times. Juran was tough, I think he was 90 when he made them. Harry was young with brown hair and was OK. Just the thought of watching a John tape makes me want to laser myself. I love John but he…[Read more]
@Mike-Carnell Mike, it may seem BS to you but I do treat my wife this well. $132.58 for 3 lobsters (there is 3 people) and I cook, them and crack them open for her so she just gets the lobster and I make all the trimmings.
I’ve never been home enough not to treat her well when I am. In 31 yrs of marriage, my home time has been about 10 yrs.
I left out John Lupienski and Steve Zinkraff above. To me John was the definitive master of process assessment and it was great learning from him. I hired Steve into Seguin because all I knew were the 7 basic tools and knew we needed allot more sophisticated tools for the problems we had. Steve was a Navy Reserves friend of mine who was also an…[Read more]
@Mike-Carnell Actually she is making me make her a full lobster dinner tonight to prove the point of making her happy.
My laser doesn’t work, so you are safe. Canadians and Cubans are OK anyway if you don’t talk on your cell phone while driving.
@PraveenGupta @KatieBarry Katie, I appreciate your comments on etiquette. I like it when Gary or Mike or that Darth Vader guy on this site kicks my but with strong and slanderous words when I say something not to their liking. It is the only way they can get through to a strong willed person like me. I have a Masters Degree in Psychology and went…[Read more]
Well, I do not consider myself an expert at anything but I think I might be running the risk that people will say I am an expert at having my wife say I am a nice guy and that we are soul mates in our relationship. Anyone who knows me in the business world would not say I am a nice guy nor very good at developing business relationships. I don’t…[Read more]
@ Mike-Carnell I resent your totally outrages claim that senior managers have no integrity. When I was VP at that big retailer chain all of my senior management buddies had total integrity. We did absolutely no […]
@dushyantthatte Q1. The top level for a factory metric is always the output measure. Any business is in business to make stuff. And all factories are built to a capacity to make enough of the stuff to make money. Someone sets that amount and the factory needs to build it. So, the measure is always how much stuff your expected to make per day…[Read more]
