1 Using 6-Sigma Experimental Design Tools in Product Improvement Testing MAESC May 11, 2005 Paul Babin, P.E., William Parker

2 Using 6-Sigma Experimental Design Tools in Product Improvement Testing What is 6-Sigma? Experimental Design Rubber Plug Example Planning the Test Results – ANOVA Engineering Model Regression Analysis Synthesis of Models and Experiments

3 What is 6-Sigma? 3.4 ppm 3.4 PPM

4 MeasureDefineAnalyzeImprove EXECUTION Control Control the process to assure that important improvements are sustained. Define the key processes that affect customers. Analyze the data, converting it to insightful information. Improve the process to achieve the results desired. Measure the performance of key characteristics. 6-Sigma Process Improvement Methodology

7 Experimental Design Statistical Methods that provide an investigator with a way to overcome the difficulties typically encountered including: Experimental Error (noise) Confusion of correlation with causation Complexity of the effects to be studies Adapted from Box, Hunter, and Hunter 1978

8 Design of Experiments Process Response Experimental Error (Noise) Factors

9 Using DOE in a 6-Sigma Project Select an appropriate Response Variable Continuous Variable (ratio level) Measurable Identify possible factors and interactions Select factors and factor levels Plan the experiment (treatment combinations) Conduct the experiment Analyze the Results Recommend Improvements (or further testing)

10 Example : Plug DOE Response Variable: Holding Pressure Factors (and levels): Tube Size (5 sizes) Tube Wall (thick and thin) Plug Material (old & new) Temp (high & low) Full factorial design 40 treatment combinations (5x2x2x2)

11 Running The Test Insert Plug and condition for 24 hours Slowly increase air pressure Note the pressure at which the plug just starts to move

12 Running the Test

13 ANOVA SourceDFSSMSFp Model <.0001 Error Total SourceNparmDFSSFP Size <.0001 Wall Matl <.0001 Temp R 2 = 0.74

14 ANOVA SourceDFSSMSFp value Model <.0001 Error Total SourceNparmDFSSFP value Size <.0001 Wall Matl <.0001 Temp R 2 = 0.74

15 What does that mean? Validated Test Method. Reduced (but not eliminated) noise Discriminate between important differences Factors explained 74% of the variation Temperature not important No Interactions

16 Engineering Model Predictive Model Press Fit Concentric Model Response: Holding Pressure Variables: Coefficient of Friction Elastic Modulus & Poisson’s Ratio Amount of Compression Cross Sectional Area

17 Regression Analysis of Engineering Model : Average Test Pressure Observed vs. Predicted

18 Future Analysis – FEA models

19 Comparing the Models Engineering Model Holding Pressure = Non- linear function of Amount of Compression Plug Wall thickness Coefficient of friction Young’s modulus Poisson’s ratio Plug length R 2 = 80% (using averages) Factorial Experiment Holding Pressure = b1 * Material + b2 * Size + b3 * Wall + error no temperature effect no interactions between factors R 2 = 74% But where do we get all the parameters to plug in? Experimentation!

20 Synthesis Engineering Models Describe behavior based on physical properties Provides a precise predicted average value Factorial Experiment Describe experimental variation Determine important factors Validate Engr Model 6-Sigma Product Improvement Understand and Reduce Variation $$$
