· Not very well known outside USA (compared to Deming, Juran) · 1991: Publication of first edition of "World Class Quality" by Keki Bothe · 2000: Second edition (Keki and Adi Bothe) · Books brought attention to Shainin methods, but are very biased.

Problem Solving

· Focus is on variation reduction

Basic Shainin assumption

· The pareto principle of vital few and trivial many. · Only a few input variables are responsible for a large part of the output behavior.

Red XTM Pink XTM Pale Pink XTM

· Problem solving becomes the hunt for the Red XTM

qsconsult

Shainin tools

· Recipe like methods / statistics in the background · Comparing extremes allows easier detection of causes BOB WOW

Best of Best Worst of Worse

· Non parametrics with ranking tests in stead of calculations with hypothesis tests · Graphical Methods · Working with small sample sizes · The truth is in the parts, not in the drawing: let the parts talk!

8

qsconsult

Preliminary activities

· Define the critical output variable(s) to be improved (called problem Green Y®) · Determine the quality of the Measurement System used to evaluate the Green Y®

A bad measurement system can in itself be responsible for excessive variation Improvements can only be seen if they can be measured

General comments

· Gradually narrowing down the search · Clear logic

Analyzing Improving Controlling

· Not all tools are "Shainin" tools · "What's in a name?"

Positrol versus Control Plan Process Certification versus Process Audit

Clue Generating / Multi-Vari Chart

Objective Application Principles Sample Size Comments

Understand the pattern of variation Define areas where not to look for problems Allow a more specific brainstorm Problem type: excess variation Wide applicability Divide total variation in categories Search for causes of variation in the biggest category first Samples taken in production on current process Could be a big measurement investment Very useful tool and best applied before brainstorming causes on excess variation

13

qsconsult

Multi-Vari Chart

· Breakdown of variation in 3 families:

Positional (within piece, between cavities, ...) Cyclical (consecutive units, batch-to-batch, lot-tolot) Temporal (hour-to-hour, shift-to-shift, ...)

14

qsconsult

Multi-vari Chart

· If one family of variation contains a large part of total variation, we can concentrate on investigating variables related to this family of variation.

Clue Generating / Component SearchTM

Objective Application Principles Sample Size Comments

Disassembly / reassembly requirement limits application. Find the component(s) of an assembly that is (are) responsible for bad behavior Problem type: assembly does not perform to spec Limitation: Disassembly / Reassembly must be possible without product change Select BOB and WOW unit Exchange components and observe behavior. Components that change behavior are Red X comp 2 = 1 BOB and 1 WOW

16

qsconsult

Clue Generating / Paired ComparisonTM

Find directions for further investigation

Objective Application Principles Sample Size

Practical application of "let the parts talk" Problem type: occasional problems in production flow Select pairs of BOB and WOW units Look for differences Consistent differences to be investigated further 5 to 6 pairs of 1 BOB and 1 WOW

Comments

17

qsconsult

Paired ComparisonsTM: method

· Step 1: take 1 good and 1 bad unit

As close as possible in time Aim for BOB and WOW units

· Step 2: note the differences between these units (visual, dimensional, mechanical, chemical, ...). Let the parts talk! · Step 3: take a second pair of good and bad units. Repeat step 2

18

qsconsult

Paired ComparisonsTM: method

· Step 4: repeat this process with third, fourth, fith, ... pair until a pattern of differences becomes apparent. · Step 5: don't take inconsistent differences into account. Generally after the fith or sixth pair the consistent differences that cause the variation become clear.

Clue Generating / Product/Process Search

Objective Application Principles Sample Size Comments

Tukey test is alternative for t-test Widely applicable method Problem: available data (process parameters)

qsconsult

Preselection of variables out of a large group of potential variables Problem type: Various types of problems

Select sets of BOB and WOW units batches - .. Add product data / process parameters and rank Apply Tukey test to determine important parameters 8 BOB and 8 WOW units / batches

Product/Process Search: example

· Transmission assemblies rejected for noise. · Components search shows idler shaft as responsible component · One of the parameters of idler shaft is "out of round" · 8 good / 8 bad units selected and measured for "out of round"

21

qsconsult

Product/Process search: example

Out of round good units (mm) 0.015 0.018 0.014 0.022 0.017 0.019 0.011 0.007 Out of round bad units (mm) 0.019 0.018 0.016 0.023 0.024 0.023 0.021 0.017

Tukey test procedure

· Rank individual units by parameter and indicate Good / Bad. · Count number of "all good" or "all bad" from one side and vice versa from other side. · Make sum of both counts. · Determine confidence level to evaluate significance.
