Six Sigma Methodology in Chemical Engineering Problem Solving
Topic:Engineering improvement projects can take many forms. There may be a need to address an acute product quality issue, a chronic problem in complexity of manufacturing or processing variation, debottlenecking, or initiatives to reduce manufacturing cost or expand markets. There are many problem solving techniques and methodologies that can be used. One of these improvement methodologies is called Six Sigma. This approach is versatile, thorough, disciplined, and data driven. Whether done as a full formal project or simply knowing and using the appropriate various tools, Six Sigma can help give you a framework and tools to pursue continuous improvement in customer satisfaction and profit. In this presentation, I will walk through the entire Six Sigma process with highlighting the various tools and project examples I’ve worked on at Lubrizol.
Speaker: Jeff Hauser, Process Improvement Specialist; Lubrizol Advanced Materials, Inc. BS Rensselaer, MS from Case Western Reserve University. 17 years at BP working in various capacities from R&D, technical marketing, and manufacturing; 7 years at Struktol as plant engineer and manufacturing polymer additives; 7 years at Lubrizol as process improvement specialist, Six Sigma Black Belt, and working in the Corporate Process Technology group supporting manufacturing of Estane™ performance polymers; holds 8 patents; and enjoys hobbies of cycling, gardening and winemaking.
