I earned my Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certification from Transformation Partners Company (or TPC) a full service Lean Six Sigma consultancy firm based in Fairport, NY. They have chosen Palisade’s @RISK to be used exclusively for their Monte Carlo Simulation modules taught during their Black Belt, Master Black Belt, Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), and Product […]
One of the main uses of Monte Carlo simulation in Six Sigma is with DFSS at the planning stage of a new product. Testing different processes on physical manufacturing or service models or prototypes can be cost prohibitive. Monte Carlo simulation allows engineers to simulate thousands of different outcomes on models without the cost and […]
Consulting with Impact, Ltd. is a Rochester, NY-area firm specializing in process and efficiency improvement, using tools such as Lean, Six Sigma, and ISO. The firm has found many uses for Monte Carlo simulation in the Lean Six Sigma process. Here, Ed Biernat, President of Consulting with Impact, discusses how Consulting with Impact uses @RISK […]
As many Six Sigma black belts know, Monte Carlo simulation is an important technique for Lean Six Sigma and Design for Six Sigma because it allows practitioners to simulate and optimize process variables before implementation. This reduces the time and cost of any Design of Experiment process. Palisade actively forms partnerships with experts in Six […]
Whether in DMAIC, Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), Lean projects, or Design of Experiments (DOE), uncertainty and variability lie at the core of any Six Sigma analysis. I’m interested in how Monte Carlo simulation can be used to identify, measure, and root out the causes of variability in production and service processes and designs.
