Six Sigma for Batch Processes

Batch processing is useful when user interaction isn’t required at each individual step. However, batch processes run less often and pack more variables into each step, which makes statistical tools harder to use, and requires investigators to rely on a combination of methods and skills to identify root causes.

This presentation will give a case study on the application of Six Sigma to an industrial batch process where Statistical Process Control alone would not have illuminated the root cause of quality failures.

Please note that since this is an interactive session, for the best experience, we highly recommend that you turn your camera on and be ready to participate and maybe even have some fun.
