I am looking for some suggestions to introduce a stat. tool to monitor the productivity level of our assembly process (we produce connectors) At the moment we collect the qty produced per day and compare it with a goal.
I'd like to use a tool like the XR charts helpful to see an out of control signal but at the same tome this tool has to be able to induce the operators to produce "more"!
Any help?

Hmmm. Would it not be more worthwhile to determine production capability and then determine optimum output as determined by this capability.

Former true, latter false.

Any help?

Same Rant, different thread.

It is a mistake to try to push an SPC apparatus where it neither adds value nor contributes to your productivity. Haphazardly using SPC usually causes more harm than good. This should be on your mind.

End Rant.

Don
