    I have a problem with one of my projects where  the Y is continues data and the X which we have corelated is variable data… how am i to set target for Improvement in Y …..?
    Y is measure of temperature
    X is absolute value of damaged pack caused due to temperature
    Thanks in advance



    Hi Balachandran,
    Not sure what you are trying to achieve here but it seems you have your variables mixed up. Let’s keep in mind that y = f(x), so is this your scenario :
    Y (discrete value of pack damaged or not) = f (x : temperature).
    I am assuming you have determined there is a causal relationship between temperature and damage to your pack.  What about other causes? I’ll assume you’ve ruled out all other causes as insignificant, which means that if you plotted a frequency chart of damaged parts versus temperatures, you would see some kind of pattern emerge.  For example, suppose your pack becomes more brittle at lower temperature and the incidence of breakage increases remarkably below a certain threshold temperature.
    I’ll also assume you’ve validated your VOC (voice of the customer) and determined what temperatures you pack has to withstand.  Your target should be in line with your customer expectations…
    So back to your scenario, it seems you have 2 choices: either find a way to modify the composition of your pack to be less susceptible at the temperature range required of your customer or find a way to control the temperatures your pack is exposed to..
    hope this helps.
