Lean Six Sigma..and final thought on PIUSS
Last entry for process improvement class.
Both lean and six sigma concepts are not Specified for manufacturing industry only. Both concepts are widely use in many industries and countries already. From my research, I guess for lean six sigma is still at the early stage of it. Most of authors lean toward the integration of lean and six sigma will create a superior process improvement or enhancing results as the organisations can focus both reduction in waste and variations at the same time.
Honestly, I know nothing about six sigma or lean before this class. It is a new knowledge for me. Heard of their names before but never know what are they for. And in class experience also amazing. Some of the experiments brought back all the high school memory of math and statistic. Helicopter experiment was fun. through learning by doing helps me understand all the concepts better as I can see how it’s really work.

Taguchi: Helicopter Experiment
Fun, stress free, no drama, and learning: everything in today class!!!
Today class is something you can have fun and still being able to learn at the same time. So creativity toward helicopter design -width, length for wing ans stem. some failure in our prototype but thats ok. We are not an expert!!
Being able to experiment and understand how Taguchi theory works was super fun. I was a bit confused during the lecture. But once I had a chance to work on the experimental, it was all clear. The factors, interaction, noise and confirmation!!
I think it is a good experience to do something like this, instead of learning from lecture only and understand only theory. But now we know how it can actually work in real life. I didn't do a proper math calculating for quite some times already, so it is good to bring all the memory back!! hahaha
Learning can be fun!!
