          Fluctuations are bad for manufacturing. In lean, unevenness is one of the three evils, besides waste and overburden. In this post I will give you an introduction to fluctuations.

            I do enjoy watching football, so this headline caught my eye: “Why Are N.F.L. Scores Scores So High This Season?” If you know me and my book Measures of Success, you know my first question was: “Is it a statistical signal worth explaining?” From the article: “N.F.L. teams have been scoring points at an unprecedented […]

                Since I've started two new podcast series during the pandemic, it's been admittedly a little chaotic about what gets published when. It was probably a mistake to not have a predictable schedule for each. I've been recording so many great episodes of “My Favorite Mistake” that I decided to make this a twice-a-week series. So […]

                    Home Improvement with Minitab Workspace's Idea Map, Project Prioritization Matrix and Gantt Chart

                    Earlier this year, as I was thinking about all the improvement projects on my needs and wants list, I was unsure where to start. Which projects should be tackled first? Did I capture everything in my potential projects list? And once I decide which projects to schedule, how can I keep on track and visualize progress?
