When and how do you respond to a result?
Do you use facts or intuition? Do your customers decide when to react?
Or maybe you use statistical process control?
How do you react? Do you start looking for a special cause?
I have experienced operators adjusting a machine in despair because the machine produced rejects.
No matter how much they adjusted, the machine still produced rejects.
The adjustments did not help, in fact it resulted in more rejects.
The best way to find out is to test! You can do that at the Norwegian museum of Science and Technology.
I did an experimental design where I tested age, gender and sense (vision and hearing). My brother in law (35 years), my son (10 years), my niece (7 years) and I (41 years) were volunteers.
I will share a story that Vibeke Holtskog shared with me. Simply because it hit me. You might like it too:
A man was driving on the countryside and suddenly did not know where he was. The peaks on both sides of the road looked the same, and the road he would turn to the right never revealed.
Do you enjoy the summer? And your holiday?
