Assisting manufacturers to be more productive- reduce start up times, increase the speed of changeovers, reduce scrap, improve on time delivery and reduce variation and quality issues. Many organizations are relying on inspecting in quality instead of controlling the process.  Many production lines are managed by employees who have many years of experience but with varying opinions on how to manage product quality. Typically, each shift adjusts the machine settings based on their own feel for the process instead of on scientific knowledge. This “Tampering” causes excessive variation and reduced quality levels.

Strategies for manufacturers include:

  • Training in statistical methods for the operators to know when to adjust the machine and when to leave it alone
  • Projects to utilize the Lean Six Sigma methodology to scientifically understand the factors that affect product quality and their actual settings to reduce variation
  • Lean Six Sigma training for your Leaders to better understand how to solve problems effectively and to install controls to sustain the improvements
