Minitab-Blog---Same-Wine-Every-Time-Post-v3



Did you know that over 790 million gallons of wine were consumed in the US in 2016? That's a lot of wine — roughly 3,950 million bottles of wine to be exact! Wine production shows no signs of slowing down either with the number of US wineries increasing by over 50% since 2009 to a total of 10,043 wineries in 2019, however Italy, France and Spain still take the title of top three wine producing countries globally. With so much wine being produced worldwide you might think it's really easy to make, but it's truly a science with all the variables involved to achieve a perfect wine.

Rodger Sherman is a fellow Northwestern alumnus who I follow on Twitter, for tweets about NU football and beyond. He recently tweeted about NFL field goal percentages, including two helpful line charts (a.k.a. “run charts”): Does a statement like “the worst level in 16 years” mean that it's a statistically meaningful decline? Not necessarily. He […]

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned.

Clinicians examining a radiograph

In hospital and clinic settings, making the right decisions doesn’t just reduce costs from duplicative work and process inefficiencies — it results in better outcomes for patients. Think about needing to take an extra X-ray because the first captured the wrong foot. Even if it’s the right limb, what if they captured it from the wrong angle?
