A Simple Rule for Judging Compliance Using Highly Censored Samples
A special case of judging compliance is when the effluent limit is set at a level below the method limit of detection (MDL) of the substance being monitored. In many such cases, almost all measurements on the effluent are ...
Constrained Experimental Designs Part III: Steepest Ascent and Properties of Projection Designs
Steepest ascent is an important tool for process improvement. This report discusses how to use the steepest ascent method in the context of constrained designs. The properties of the projection designs proposed in Report ...
Constrained Experimental Designs Part I: Construction of Projection Designs
Experimental design is a powerful tool for quality improvement. In some situations, however, the design variables are subject to multiple linear constraints. In this report, we propose a class called projection designs ...
Fast Cycle Change in Knowledge-Based Organizations: Building Fundamental Capability for Implementing Strategic Transformation
This paper discusses the experience of a knowledge-based organization in the pharmaceutical industry in building a fundamental capability for implementing strategic transformation. The organization developed and implemented ...
Constrained Experimental Designs Part II: Analysis of Projection Designs
In this report, we discuss the analysis of projection designs proposed in Report #53. We show that analyzing projection designs is essentially the same as analyzing some traditional unconstrained designs such as factorial ...
Teaching Quality Improvement by Quality Improvement in Teaching
In response to disturbing challenges ahead, leaders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are committed to transform the institution to a Total Quality University. As a pilot project in the transformation, this paper ...
