What is Total Production Maintenance (TPM)? Module 22

TPM = Preventive Maint = Cost Improvement + Operator Involvement + Maint & Operator teams = TPM
Process for preventing breakdowns.  Goal is to maximize equipment effectiveness and availability.  TPM is part of everyone's job (i.e. daily inspections, cleaning, repairs, replacing worn parts, periodic inspections, procedures, and records.).  Maximizes equipment effectiveness.  Focuses on entire life cycle.  Coordinates all departments.  Involves all employees.  Is implemented through teams. 

What is Overall  Equipment Effective (OEE) and what is the formula? Module 22

OEE is mathematical score that indicated overall effectiveness of an individual piece or group of machines.
 Availability losses  breakdowns/failures.  Performance losses  minor stoppages/reduced speed.  Quality losses  defects and rework/startup and yield loss. Formula:  OEE = Percent Equipment Availability X Performance Rate X Quality Rate X 100. 

What is Pull System? Module 22

No one upstream should produce a good or service until the downstream customer asks for it.
 Pull systems are simplified visual information systems designed to respond to changes in demand simply, quickly, and accurately.  Information systems to achieve pull production.  Most utilize "Kanban"  taglike card that communicates product info.  "Kanban" is the vehicle to obtain pull system linking subsequent operations. PUSH:  Anticipated usage.  Large lots.  High inventories.  Waste.  Management by Expediting.  Poor Communication. PULL:  Actual Consumption.  Small lots.  Low inventories.  Waste reduction.  Management by Sight.  Better Communications. 

What is Kanban? Module 22

 Japanese word that means "signboard". Signal authorizing production or delivery of required materials, and is initiated by consumption (downstream process should pull products from upstream process) ex: mail flag on mailbox.
 System that coordinates products/materials/transaction services to create "pull", through a series of operations using cards or placecards.  Prouction Kanban  License to "make"  signals supplier to product specific quantity.  Withdrawal Kanban  License to "Take"  defines quanity customer may withdraw.

 Factors that impact inventory levels: (Inventory is a waste, but the need is to calculate where and how much you need  not guess at it.
 Variability of production demand rate.  Long changeover times.  Long Product Family Turnover Rate ("wheel time").  Machine downtime.  Schedule increases/ decreases.  Large process or transfer batch sizes.  Process variability.  Poor quality.  Long cycle times.  Bottleneck operations. = LONG REPLENISHMENT TIME  Inventory (min) = Total cycle time / TAKT 

How do you calculate Inventory (min). Module 22

 Total inventory = (ADD x R) + (Service Factor X Sigma).

If the chance if obtaining our sample results uner the null hypothesis is very small (generally less than .05), then we conclude in favor of the alternate hypothesis.  The pvalue is our risk of making a Type 1 error. It provides the exact level of significance of a hypothesis test.  If pvalue is .05 (red) not the same, not normal (highly significant). HO has to Go.

 diagnostics alert us to potential problems.
 Diagnostics signal things we should investigate more closely.  Diagnostics are not meant to be a data cleansing machine.  For unusual observations: Try to find a cause. If the data oint is invalid, then correct it or delete it. If the dat oint appear valid, then consider collection additional dta near that point.  Unusual observation (X).  Have a potential influence on the regression fit and should be checked very carefully. Diagnostics: leverage values.  Highly Influential Observations. Without these observations, the regrestion fit would be significantly altered. Diagnostics: Cook's D > 2. TPM is part of everyone's job (i.e. daily inspections, cleaning, repairs, replacing worn parts, periodic inspections, procedures, and records). 

What does Tolerance (TOL) measure and what values are desired and is used for variablecontinuous data? Module 25

 It measures orthogonality.
 Would like to see values of 1 (perfect orthogonality), however no lower than .5 (in the case of historical data). 

When analyzing historical data, what are some things we should remember? Module 25

 Always check for outliers.
 Data is often messy.  May need to eliminate some of the variables.  Always code standardized the factor settings.  Always check the TOL values. Want all values above .5, and at least half above .70. You would standardize if values not in this range.  Low tolerance  you can not trust Pvalue or coefficients. Delete highest level first, rerun regression.  Each time you remoe term errors your PValue and Coefficients change.

BINOMIAL  Proportion defective. CHARACTERISTICS: 1. 2 possible outcomes: success or failure; defectie or not defective; male or femail. 2. Trails re identical. 3. Trails are independent (outcome of one doesn't influence outcomeof other). 4. Probability of success o every trail is the same; we call that probability p. BINOMIAL RANDOM VARIALE X  Expected value "X" = number of successes out of n trails. "X" = (0, 1...n)  Parameters: n = number of trails. p = probability of success on any trail. q = 1  p.  E(X) = mu = np.  Use SPC XL > Discrete Distributions ? Binomial  POISSON (# of occurrences per unit interval of time or space).  Each unit can hae 0, 1, or multiple errors, defects, or some other ype of measured occurrence. Examples: number of speeding tickets issued ina certain county per week. number of disk drive failure per month for a particualr kind of disk drive. number of calls arriving at an emergency dispatch station per hour. numer of flaws per square yard ina certain type of fabric. number of typos per page in a techinical book. ***Skewed right (how much). ***Convert to same time interval. ***Mean and variance are Lambda in Poisson distributon. CONTINUOUS DISTRIBUTIONS (VARIABLE):  Normal Random Variable X.  X = normally distributed, Gaussian, bell shaped.  Mu = mean.  Sigma = standard deviation.  Population average is E(X) = mu.

How do you compute sigma level or sigma capability regardless of the type of data? Module 16

 Is it normal. Run histogram. ks pvalue is > .05 normal data.
 If not normal, data must be transformed...logarithms first, second: 4th root (in excel = highlight cell...(shift 6) * .25 ...no parenthesis needed.  ROT: If max / min > 10, then will have nonnormal data and need to transform the data. 1. Apply log function to data; do histogram, Cpk  upper spec limit needs converting to Logg too. 2. If data still nonnormal, apply another transformation technique. ROT: If dta set contains serveral values = 0, then apply 4th root. If data cannot be transformed, then find dpm. Can we look up sigma capability in chart after finding dpm?

Example: Actual XCoded X 10(lowest)1.0 200.0 250.5 30(highest)1.0 Note:  Coded doesn't SUM to Zero.  "C" stands for data Coded on Historical data sheet. Standardiziing:  The mean (X bar) and standard deviation (S) are used to normalize the values. Equation: Standardized x = actual (data point) value  Xbar actual devided S actual. X  Xxbar devided Sx. 

How many steps for Historical Data Analysis Strategy? Module 25

9 Steps.
 Step 1 & 2 get rid of outliers. Use Summary Stats, histograms and/or stemandleaf plots for all variables, scatter plots  Steps 3  check for intercorrelations between independent variables (i.e., multicolliearity). Look at scatter plot and correlation matrix. Remove or reduce the multicollinearity by centering the data (coding or standardizing (leave factors that are colinear because if not it will reduce), removing variables, etc. Centering data using DOE PRO > Historical Data by either standardizing or coding the input variables. If correlated, they are ot independent.  Step 4 Use DOE PRO to build Regression Model.  Step 5  Examine pvalues, tolerances, R2, Adjusted R2, etc. Identify outliers, remove and rerun step 4.  Step 6   For Step 6 Examine the model for insignificant terms. Stepwise, remove terms fromt he model that have high Pvalues and low tolerancs and perform regression analysis again o the new model.  Step 7 Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the "best" possible model is obtained. Higher R2 and higher F value.  Step 8 Test for adequacy of the model.. Examine risidual plot and test for lack of fit F LOF. Remove any outliers and repeat back to step 4.  Step 9  perform confirmation. Use half of the data (more like 80/20 rule) you have for building the model, and save the other half for cross validation (confirmation) purposes.

What problems can cause a LOW R Squared or the model to not confirm? Module 24

 Problem 1: Experimental disciplie (inadequate SOP's, SOP's not followed). FIX: Better use of PF/CE/CNX/SOP.
 Problem 2: Data recording or input errors: FIX: Better use of PF/CE/CNX/SOP.  Problem 3: Inputs not related to Output. FIX: Better use of PF/CE/CNX/SOP.  Problem 4: Setup Variation. FIX: Better use of PF/CE/CNX/SOP.  Problem 5: Significant Factor(s) not in model. FIX: Better use of PF/CE/CNX/SOP.  Problem 6: too much variation in inputs. FIX: Better SOP for input (consider modeling with DFSS Master.  Problem 7: Poor Measurement System. FIX: Perform MsA and fix measurement system.  Problem 8: Aliased Effects. FIX: Use full factorial or higher resolution design (should not ba problem with Res V recommended designs).  Problem 9: Highly signifiant factor in shat model causing low R squared in yhat model. FIX: Use shat model to decrease variation.  Problem 10: Lack of Fit (LOF). FIX: Use 3level design (reason the CCD design is recommended). Add Quad terms.  Problem 11: Low and High setting of a factor are too close. FIX: Increase spread between settings.  Problem 12: Input is blocked with a noise factor. FIX: Better randomization. 

For DOE which factors are vertical and horizontal balanced?

 Main Factor A,B,C = Vertical Balance.
 Ineraction AB, AC, BC, ABC = Horizontal Balance. 

When designing a DOE experiment what do you need to know?

1. # of levels for each factor.
2. # of factors. 3. Design Name (Full Factorial). 4. # of Reps. NOTES:  Level K is 2 to 3rd.  K = Factor.  Orthogonality  vertical and hortizonal balance, independent.  n = levels K # of Runs  n  1 = # of terms  yhat = > affects meanneed to shift.  shat = affets Standard Deviation  need to squeeze.
