Plasma Cutter Cycle Time Experimental Design Results

This post describes the results and their analysis of the experimental design to reduce plasma cutter cycle time.  The experimental design is a Taguchi Parameter Design.   The previous posting describes the experimental design, and refers to the Value Stream Map Case Study posting to review the Lean Six Sigma project that produced the experimental design.   Continue reading Plasma Cutter Cycle Time Experimental Design Results

Experimental Design to Reduce Plasma Cutter Cycle Time

This posting describes the corrective action using an experimental design to reduce a machine’s cycle time.  The machine is a plasma cutting machine, and a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) team identified it as the bottleneck operation in producing electrical switchboards by an electrical manufacturer.    Continue reading Experimental Design to Reduce Plasma Cutter Cycle Time
