    6-Sep-2011 10:45 “Six Sigma - A New Approach
    The purpose of the workshop is to explore a workable roadmap for Design for Six Sigma and a problem solving using the learning which I have obtained from the implementation of the traditional DMADV and DMAIC approaches. For example:
    Is undertaking a Gauge study always necessary?
    Is learning all statistical hypotheses really necessary?
    Is brainstorming really the best way to collect data?
    Does using the DMADV approach lead to good design?
    Plus a number of other questions and I will propose a sensible road map.

    5-Sep-2011 17:17 Reducing Welding Defect Rate for a Critical Component of an Aircraft engine
    A Six Sigma Black Belt Project has been performed with the purpose to investigate if there is a correlation between repaired castings delivered from supplier and weld defects occurring in manufacturing processes of a large structural component of an aircraft engine at Volvo Aero, in order to minimize weld defects and subsequent rework, inspection procedures and overall lead-time, through a revision of the specifications of the castings.
    Phases already carried on and implemented tools: Define (project charter, Gantt chart, “Y” and “y” definitions, Cause and Effect diagram, business case, log book on meetings, SIPOC, process map) - Measure (interviews, observation, drawings, work sheets, histograms, Gauge R&R) – Analyse (correlation, regression, process map, Cause and Effect matrix, FMEA, VMEA).
  • JMP – Putting the ‘Visual’ in Visual Analytics

    Although there is a wide, and increasing, variety of ways to display data visually, the simple idea of presenting multiple, linked displays with which the user can freely interact remains a compelling one.
    Such a capability is particularly, but not exclusively, valuable when the focus of an investigation is hypothesis generation rather than narrow hypothesis testing: In other words, in the majority of real-world situations where one needs to exploit data.
    This presentation aims to briefly show how JMP allows you to transcend the limited, but unfortunately common, paradigm in which a computer screen is used simply as a facsimile of the printed page.
  • Customising Minitab for Dynamic Graphing

    5-Sep-2011 11:50 Customising Minitab for Dynamic Graphing
    See how you can use visual basic to create new a dialogue option within Minitab, which allows you to link Minitab graphs to a database; furthermore importing and updating in one step to produce updated graphical output.

    With STATISTICA you have, at your disposal, a wide range of graphs and analytics to approach your data in a statistically sound and efficient way.
    However, that will not be enough to improve your process but just to understand a little sample of it. We are going to show you how you can give real value, on your company or research institute to the insights you have created by institutionalizing certain process quality checks. The key is:
    How do you define automated reusable templates that you can share with the rest of the team, to make sure that these analyses are performed every day, automatically, against all processes, and that you are alerted if any of them show a problem? This is where STATISTICA Enterprise comes in; to allow you to deploy your insights to the enterprise to make the process better, and realize ROI (return-on-investment) and create value.
