Summary
Industrial Problem SolvingSimplified provides a roadmap for solving manufacturingproblems. Containing numerous examples of actual problems and their solutionsin various industrial environments, it is for novice as well as experiencedmanufacturing owners, managers, quality representatives, consultants, trainers, and procurement professionals. AuthorRalph Pawlak's roadmap is a proven system that has been used to eliminate majormanufacturing problems in electronics, casting, blow molding, and assemblyoperations. What's more, it has been used effectively in the manufacture oftoys, juvenile products, chemicals, automotive engines, and innumerablecomponents of many manufacturing facilities--and in the U.S., Canada, China, andEurope. The book's insights into problem causes and the methods to solve themonce and for all are applicable to most problems in mostindustries. Pawlak, with decades of experience as manager of manufacturing, quality, and plant engineering forGeneral Motors, Fisher Price, Vibratech, and others, offers tools to solveproblems and shows how to use them. You'll learn how to use tools like qualitycheck sheets, flow diagrams, concept sheets, duo diagrams, variation plots, sketches, sum-of-extremes tests, good versus bad comparisons, fractionals with interactions, and many-level checks. What's more, these are tools anyone can put to good use today. No special knowledge of statistics, or advancedmath or engineering, is required. If you can add, subtract, multiply, anddivide--and use your eyes and ears--you can learn to solve industrial problemslike a pro. Thisbook will help you: 1. Clarify the conditions that cause problems 2. Define the cause of problems 3. Generate clues as to the causes of problems and their solutions 4. Collect accurate and relevant data 5. Use specific tools to solve problems effectively 6. Establish consistent work processes to ensure problems do notreturn Industrial Problem SolvingSimplified willempower you and your people not just to solve manufacturing problems butoptimize processes, improve productivity, and save money. With the plans, examples, and worksheets in this book, you will become a proficient problem solver
