    Arslan — How do you think the problem should be solved? What have you tried? Where are you running into a problem? You’re far more likely to receive helpful responses if you show that you’ve put forth a good-faith effort to solve your problem before asking for assistance. The iSixSigma audience can be exceptionally helpful, but they are not here to do your work for you.
