Two good things happen with reduction in manufacturing variation. The first is that your consumer’s second product experience is better than the first which enhances consumer’s confidence and therefore, repeats sales. Secondly, there are fewer production line stoppages and the process flow becomes more laminar and less turbulent. Both these outcomes of Process Variation Reduction (PVR) enhance the financial bottom line.
PVR draws advantage from the fact that Quality and Productivity are positively correlated when efforts toward their improvement are carried out correctly. Data carefully and systematically derived from the process are used to quantify both process capability and process performance. Capability is the intrinsic, inherent variability of the process, while performance is a measure of the finished product variation received by the consumer. The difference between performance and capability can usually be translated into dollars, and the draw to capture those dollars provides the PVR motivation.
In this session, Lynne B. Hare, Ph.D. will explain the strategy for process variation reduction along with a step-by-step approach to successful application illustrated by real examples. You will be able to understand how to improve manufacturing line efficiencies and customer/consumer satisfaction with the help of this webinar.
