Running with Scissors

Paul Sheehy | Tuesday, April 3, 1:50 - 2:25 p.m. |  Learn More 

Give people a powerful tool – statistics – with insufficient training, and you likely have a case of somebody running with scissors. This talk will cover some of the more common statistical mistakes. 


Beyond the Buzzwords: Application of Machine Learning in Lean Six Sigma

Cheryl Pammer and Charles Harrison | Wednesday, April 4, 8:05 - 8:40 a.m. | Learn More 

As we collect more data, we need new tools to provide meaningful insights into our processes. Learn how you can use modern-day machine learning techniques, such as Classification and Regression Trees (CART), alongside traditional Lean Six Sigma tools to analyze, improve and control your processes. 


An Interval for Capturing a High Percentage of the Process with Confidence

Scott Kowalski | Wednesday, April 4, 2:25 - 3 p.m. | Learn More 

Many quality practitioners and Lean Six Sigma belts are familiar with the phrase “we need a 95/99 interval for our process." This is called a tolerance interval. Statistically, it means that you can be 95% confident that 99% of the population is within the interval. This can be especially useful for setting the specification limits of a new process/product within DFSS, but also helpful for quantifying an existing process/product. This session will explain the difference between confidence intervals, prediction intervals and tolerance intervals, and then focus on the use of tolerance intervals within the LSS framework.
