    Very new to this discussion platform, but very interested to understand if anyone is using six sigma or CI principals in thier food production business, not so much value adding to food, but primary production of food?

    @stuartsharman It isn’t Six Sigma but try googling Split plot designs. Statistics has been involved in agriculture specifically food production for a very long time. I do not know of large food manufacturing company that does not use it. At the top of this page you will see an ad for GPS. They have been working with Kraft foods extensively. I am sure if you follow the ad back to the website you will find a lot of case studies.

    @stuartsharman – every time you pass by a corn field, or wheat field, or bean field, etc, and you see a bunch of signs at the end of a row, you are looking at a designed experiment. Monks in Europe were some of the first to apply CI methods to improve production of beer (and wine and Champagne!). So, CI and LSS methods have a long history in the food production and now in the value adding food production businesses.

    Unfortunately most of the DOE runs I passed by in Iowa,Missouri,Illinois and Indiana the last few days were Dead , a bust due to the high temperatures.
    Some kind words to the man upstairs might be in order to reduce the boldness of the temperature level setting and to increase the boldness of the raw moisture setting.

    Ah ha, an assumption that it is a “man” upstairs. Very stereotypical and biased. I am sure Katie believes that it is a wo”man” upstairs.

    @Darth – Hmmm, is the flying spaghetti monster male or female?

    @Darth, @spazwhatsup, @KatieBarry – can we keep things to the scientific here? I was never very good at metaphysics (although I second the prayer from Gomez).
