Hi, Sorry to bother u people again but got one more question regarding my SIX SIGMA project. I have done various things like: 1. On the SUB ASSEMBLY SECTION i have done time study on the previously adopted method of working on the work cells and also suggested a different method of doing the work on the existing work cells and noticed that the overall time to make one piece has decreased( that is the increase in Productivity) as a result of which the number of inspections that were previously 2 pieces out of a lot of 100 pieces could be increased. 2. Have designed a new WORK CELL on which the parts will be assembled in ON GO(on the existing work cells the operators were unable to complete the assembly in ONE GO) as a result of this the number of inspections would once again be increased. 3. Changing the drafts of the drawings, so that they are now more user friendly and more visible. 4. Right now there is a problem that the operators are not traceable that is which operator made the error so developed CHECK SHEET that would result in the traceability of the operators 5. On the main assembly line are there was a problem that the work was not evenly distributed as a result of which there were , so have used LINE BALANCING algorithms to balance the assembly line with a view that now the defect rate will be minimized. So i was willing to know that how can i quantify these statements that the increased number of inspections, properly distributed work load etc, would yield in less number of defective units before actually implementing these proposals. The management wants me to quantify these issues in terms of cost or time .Are there any formulas /algorithms etc for the quantification of these suggestions or any way to calculate the probability of success of these recommendations ??? Any books/reference / suggestions will be great help Thank You MOIN
