  5. Multicollinearity is a statistical phenomenon. It happens when several independent variables are highly correlated, However not perfectly correlated and In this situation we get regression results to be unreliable.

There is a considerable overlap between Consumer Price Index and Borrow Rate and Substantial overlap between Inflation Index and Borrow rate. Now, because there is a significant overlap between Consumer Price Index and Inflation Index

In the below reference pic, Andon is used as Visual Management tool to know the status of the production.

In six sigma - DMAIC methodology goals should be SMART – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound and the goal of the project should be aligned to the issue/problem that we are trying to solve. A in SMART, Referring to - Attainable, Agreed upon, Achievable, Acceptable, Action-oriented Attainable is the important element and needs to be considered thoughtfully. Attaining defect % of less than 1% from 50% might not be possible in the due course of the project with out knowing the causes and the solution path. Below are few questions that can be ask
  9. Benford's law also referred as first digit law highlights about distribution of digits of randomly collected numbers to be in non-uniform way, especially the digit 1 tends to occur with probability of around 30%, which is much greater than expected 11.1% (1 out of 9 leading digits) Flip side, Non-naturally occurring data would have pre-defined number like Zip Codes or Universal Product Code (barcode symbology) for instance. Computer-Generated Numbers using Rand() does not follow Benford's law Scientifically, this Law is based on base-10 log that shows the p
  10. Decision Making can be combination of Logic and Emotions. Analysis paralysis is Overanalyzing/Overthinking (Drowning in Data) Extinct by Instinct is taking decisions by Gut reaction (Disregarding the Data ) Overanalyzing or Overthinking can hinder the productivity It lowers performance on mentally demanding jobs There is high possibility that overthinking can kill creativity It pulls willpower of the individual It makes people less happy Organizations carrying excessive formal analysis is labeled as “dialogue of the deaf,” the “vicious
