ASQ NJIT Student Section Lean Six-sigma (LSS) Presentations on April 15, 2015

Please join us for our monthly section meeting with the ASQ NJIT Student Section featuring presentations on Lean Six-Sigma (LSS) NJIT.

Presentation Topics:

1. Quality Project Management Challenges and Solutions (by Olga Kalaba)

This presentation focuses on how the different participants in the construction industry are related to each other, and what the basic documents are everyone is using. It will specifically explain design problems and solutions: contract drawings and specification discrepancies, addendum’s & RFI’s, discontinued products/outdated specifications, installers and manufacturers’ feedbacks. Execution problems and solutions: how to keep track of approved and disapproved submittals, the submittal log on a shared drive with hyperlinks (electronic submittals vs. paper submittals) and examples, approved submittals on the job site, how to keep track of approved systems; submittal library and an example. Closeout problems and solutions: attic stock in execution phase instead in closeout phase, manufacturers’ warranties duration, and closeout log examples.

2. Lean Six-sigma Quality Case Studies (by Meghana Thammareddy)

Total Quality is a description of the culture, attitude and organization of a company that strives to provide customers with products and services that satisfy their needs. Meghana will be discussing the Component Oriented Requirements Analysis (CORA) method and tool. She will show how the tool makes it easier to follow the steps needed to make or improve a product by showing what customers want while highlighing the proposed engineering solutions and performance compared to other competitors. She will also show how the tool also gives you the complete importance rating for each engineering solution, thereby simplifying a company’s assessment as to which engineering solutions to challenge first, second, third, and so on.

3. Visual Factory Management Case Studies (by Michelle Vollo)

In an effort to maximize productivity, and reduce waste, Visual Factory Management Case Studies offers valuable ideas and information on incorporating visual aids into any business. With an emphasis on organization in the workplace, the presentation covers reducing waste and reworking processes through visual factory signs, color coding, workstation layouts, and layered process diagrams.

4. Lean Six-sigma Zero Defect Simulation with a Tolerance Analysis Focus (by Paul G. Ranky)

This interactive R&D presentation and workshop focuses on the basic principles of LSS tolerance analysis with the aim of achieving zero defect. Participants face a real-world challenge in terms of establishing and measuring KPIs (Key Process Indicators) of physical devices, entering data into a statistical software tool and then analyzing and discussing the results.

October Section Meeting – Human Design and Operator Error Detection and Prevention Methods

Human Design and Operator Error Detection and Prevention Methods, Tools and Technologies with Practical Case Studies & Examples: an interactive NJIT ASQ Chapter workshop presentation

Losses are attributable to human error. Errors can occur not only during the implementation of various processes, but also in the design and operation control of processes.

A human error means that something has been done that was not intended by the actor (meaning neither by the designer nor by the operator of a process, or procedure; meaning the same here).

A human error is a deviation from intention, expectation or desirability. Continue reading October Section Meeting – Human Design and Operator Error Detection and Prevention Methods
