All Knowledge Categories are types of process improvements. Without accurate and timely Troubleshooting, some process upsets can quickly spread and lead to major environmental and economic impacts. Troubleshooting helps to maximize system efficiency by minimizing upset conditions.
System questions are asked based on conditional logic. This means the next question asked is based on your answer to the current question. Typically within the first few questions very detailed questions will be asked concerning your specific equipment.
Our ideas are generated by a logic rule based approach. This approach is thorough to prevent any missed opportunities. Our ideas are non-biased, whereas many existing ideas are based on what is already familiar. It is often true that "you can't see the forest through the trees" meaning focusing on small ideas and missing
Systems relations are addressed by the path of the questions asked. This allows each system relationship to be handled uniquely. Typically the relationship will be explored by first asking a question if another system is present. If another system is present, then more detailed questions will be asked based on answers provided. This will very
First remember the phrase “data in equals data out”. Assuming all of the data input is accurate and if you generate 10 process improvement ideas, you can probably expect: 2-3 great process improvement applicable ideas 2-3 good process improvement applicable ideas 2-3 average process improvement applicable ideas 2-3 not applicable ideas With the technical assistance
Manufacturing processes are composed of unique combinations of individual interacting systems. Our systems are the building blocks for a unique process. The interactions between systems are addressed in the questions asked. Questions can function to weave systems together.
The first few questions asked will typically drill down to your very specific system. For example, we have a “pump” system rather than the following systems: pumps, centrifugal pumps, gear pumps, magnetic drive pumps, air diaphragm pumps, peristaltic pumps, electric pumps, water The first few questions asked in the pump system will narrow down your
