Question: When is Six Sigma not Six Sigma? Answer: When it's the Six Sigma Metric!!©
Six Sigma Quality is a popular approach to process improvement, particularly among technology driven companies such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Kodak

failure kodak  approach is taken in Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) where improvement priorities are set based on a combination of frequency of occurrence, severity and detectability of candidate failure modes. I understand that the TI flavor of 6s does include this type of logic. Where should the weightings come from? The customer of the process, of course (but, more about this in a future installment in this series, if there's sufficient interest). Current practice usually leaves the choice of what Read More...

Conversely, GXS has tackled many tenets of Internet exchanges' success—scalable and secure infrastructure, integration capabilities, process management, and policies (inherited from stringent process competence practices at GE, such as Six Sigma, International Standards Organization [ISO], and NATO certification, and high levels of security), trading partner reach, experience, and financial viability. For example, as for the infrastructure provision, GXS boasts three Read More...

failure kodak  Implementation Failure, Another Missed Learning Opportunity In recent posts, we've learned that business software implementation failures are rampant and that the blame is all on the vendor. And though unhappy customers are suing the software vendors, little speculation is offered on the cause for the implementation failure. So, these posts, and any others that follow, provide little insight on the learnings on the part of both the customer and vendor from this difficult experience.  In one of my Read More...

Top 5 Reasons ERP Implementations Fail and What You Can Do about It
Somewhat surprisingly, it is generally agreed upon in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) consulting community that failures are rarely caused by the

Ultimately, what this means is most of the problems that come with an ERP install can be summed up in one word: People. Read this white paper to find out more. Read More...
The Seven Types of Power Problems
Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime, software, and data corruption are the result of a problematic power supply. Compounding the problem is

failure kodak  can lead to the failure of non- linear loads such as computer power supplies. The solution for sags also applies to undervoltages. However, a UPS with the ability to adjust voltage using an inverter first before using battery power will prevent the need to replace UPS batteries as often. More importantly, if an undervoltage remains constant, it may be a sign of a serious equipment fault, configuration problem, or that the utility supply needs to be addressed. 4.

The Case for Pricing Management
Savvy and dynamically optimized pricing can mean the difference between survival and failure. In many environments it might be smarter, quicker, and more useful

The Power of Pricing , the well-known 2003 McKinsey & Co . report, showed that a price rise of 1 percent, at constant volumes of sale and costs, should generate an 8 percent increase in operating profits, which is 50 percent greater than the impact of a decrease of 1 percent in variable costs (materials and direct labor costs), and more than 300 percent greater than the impact of a 1 percent increase in sales volume, even if one ignores the fact that increased Read More...
Overcoming The Roadblocks To Hearing YES On New Projects
The money issue was usually caused by too much risk and too much time required. Since it is simpler and more understandable to talk about money, people use the

failure kodak  times, the penalty for failure is seen as more severe. The business cannot afford to waste time and money on a failure because time and money are in short supply. The first risk question is, Will it work? Although vendors find this surprising, or even insulting, it is a very valid question for the end-user. There is no such thing as a sure thing and tackling new software technologies, no matter how proven, raises the Will it work? question. The next risk question is Will it produce the expected Read More...
PLM: A New World of (More) Collaboration and Innovation
It used to be the case that PLM was perceived as being principally about CAD tools and 3D drawings and complex technical specs that no one really understood

failure kodak  a certain degree of failure that enhances innovation, because everyone involved will learn a lot from failing and will gain insight that cannot be obtained by avoiding failure. One example is the NeXTSTEP operating system created by Steve Jobs, which was originally a complete failure, but much of it was used to create the Mac OS X (now used by all Apple computers). Collaboration and innovation, which are now probably the most common buzzwords in the business software world, have always been present in Read More...

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS
Reliability driven maintenance (RDM) focuses on understanding the

failure kodak  enables preemptive intervention before failure occurs, whereby failure would mean that equipment is not delivering required performance regardless of whether it is actually broken down or not. To reduce waste, assets must perform as expected and when expected. This means that failure must be redefined to mean an asset is unable to meet business objectives, such as running at the expected rate, producing product within the expected quality standards, and being ready when it is needed for production. If an Read More...
Should Your Software Selection Process Have a Proof of Concept? Part Two: Advantages, Disadvantages, and Conclusion
A proof of concept (POC) should be completed as part of the selection process when the risk of project failure is comparatively high. Risk can be measured by

failure kodak  the risk of project failure is comparatively high. Risk can be measured by two key variables. These variables are complexity of requirements and level of expertise within the selection and implementation team. The more complex the system requirements, the greater the benefit obtained from a POC. Complexity can be gauged by the number and nature of the modules implemented, amount of customization, number of interfaces, and the amount and quality of the data to be converted. The number of modules to be Read More...
