Would you know if there are statistics kept on ppm by industry. We are a low volume fabricating shop looking to see how we stack up.

Thank you -- Jack

I don't think there's anything available that lists PPM levels in various industries, and if there were I think it would probably be unreliable. You need to worry about how you stack up with your own customers--that's all you really need to know.

Jack,

Here is a link to an ASQ article about PPM.

I know that there are pros and cons about using PPM as a valid performance measure, but it gives you some perspective. I have seen PPM comparisons somewhere, I just need to look them up.

Re: PPM by Industry

Ford SIMS scorecards show ppm comparisons for their tier 1 suppliers for others in your comodity group and awards or delets points if your company is better or worse than the comodity average. This info is not available to other manufacturers outside of the Ford direct suppliers with site codes. I do not know of any other direct comparisons at this time.

Thank you for helping everyone. Reason for asking this question is because one of our company metrics will now be reported in ppm. Our business is fabricating, machining,welding, and painting of small & medium steel weldments. Many of our weldments are low volume frames, aprox 1-2 week.
