- Case Study Description
A manufacturer of agricultural equipments wanted to reduce the number of times system cleanout was done in the production unit. The cleanout costs were high as it included chemical costs, labour costs, and waste treatment costs.
This decision could not be taken just based on gut feeling or opinion of subject matter experts. Process capability was evaluated for the current production mechanism. Historical data was used for capability assessment. Freshly collected data after measurement system checks was used to validate the findings from historical data.
It was finally proved through hypothesis tests that six monthly frequencies (instead of the monthly frequency) had no adverse impact on the functioning of plant or quality of the product. This led to cost reduction and higher productivity for the manufacturer.
Feedback from participants
This training is worth doing and it helped me a lot in streaming out process.

This course has made significance difference in my understanding about the six sigma methodology. What I was thinking before it is a tool useful to improve quality. But now I understand it can be used almost to solve any chronic business problem. Also I understood the methodology. This was very useful training.
-Vikas Narkar, Lean Manager, Technocraft.
This is a fantastic course that must be learnt by the key players in an organisation. All real life problems can be analyzed statistically and solution can also be identified statistically that can be used as a real life solution.
