    Is lean six sigma methodology suitable to be used in a chemical or petrochemical manufacturing industry where the production outputΒ is a continous process?

    In fact its more than suitable, its perfect.Β  If your company is anything like the one I used to work for you’ll already have loads of data being collected, not just on the outputs but the inputs too, this is a luxury many of us in other industries don’t have.Β  We know what comes out of the end but not what pressure, temp, flowrate we used to get it.

    Also been struggling with this question. Allthough many times indeed data is available I wonder how often it is of value (for analysis). In my opinion it is very suitable, but in a lot of cases process times (time constants, dead time, delays) makes regression analysis (or normal cause & effect relations) difficult. I wonder how SixSigma deals with this.
    Thanks
