Process Control (SPC)

1 07 2008

What is it? Complete statistical process control services for your manufacturing or service needs.  Process control plans, process models, control charts, reaction plans, and process capability analysis are some of the delivered products.  Reduced variation and improved quality means your business will Rise Above The Noise.

Why would I want it? When you want to reduce variation in your processes or procedures.  When quality control is needed to make your business more competitive.  If you are ISO 9000:2000 certified or are trying for certification, you’ll need to demonstrate statistical process control in your business.  SPC is part of an overall quality assurance system that has proven to make businesses more competitive through a focus on quality.  Let us help you meet that need.

How does SES do it? Years of experience in industry and access to the latest software tools allow us to quickly evaluate your process, model it, and set up the control charts necessary.  We work with you to ensure you get the results you need.


Experimental Design

1 07 2008

What is it? When you need to generate data, a design of experiments (DoE) will ensure the maximum amount of information is obtained from the minimum amount of data.  We provide the data collection sheets–you just fill in the blanks with collected data.  We deliver to you the complete design, data collection sheets, and full analysis with straight forward interpretation.  You get a model of your system with the critical parameters identified.  With this kind of powerful information you will Rise Above The Noise.

Why would I want it? When there is something you want to investigate, explore, study, or know the relationship of, you need a DoE.  This is especially true if you suspect interactions among the variables you are studying.   DoEs allow you to study the effects of variable separately and in combination with other variables.  Experimental designs are great for process or product optimizations.  Or if you want to compare processes or products, turn to experimental design.

How does SES do it? Years of experience designing experiments under real world conditions and powerful software methods ensure that you get the best design possible.  You won’t get academic designs that are impractical to implement.  SES is about delivering results that you can use.

What is it? Methods for exploring relationships between variables including correlation, regression, and time series analysis and forecasting.  From your data we create models you can use and provide forecasts you can count on.  Correlation coefficients, scatter plots, regression models, and forecasts are just some of the delivered products to you.

Why would I want it? Data  allows us to create models to better understand the world around us.  Models yield clear visions of how systems work.  If your data isn’t being treated properly it’s wasteful or even worse, damaging to your business or the problem you are trying to solve.  When you have a good model for your system you have control.  You can forecast the future with a known degree of certainty.  Rise Above The Noise and get an edge on the competition with accurate and useful information.

How does SES do it? We have an array of some of the most advanced modeling and forecasting tools available.  We apply a standard, well tested model building and forecasting system to your data to ensure your results are accurate and useful.

General Data Analysis

1 07 2008

What is it? Statistical data analysis of any existing or generated data sets including basic and advanced descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing, ANOVA/MANOVA, and non-parametric analysis.  A clear incisive report is our delivered product to you.  You’ll know everything possible about your data in clear, easy to understand terms.

Why would I want it? In today’s digital age data adds up fast.  Often data lies dormant because no one is sure what to do with it.  Either the expertise necessary is not available on staff, a software purchase would be necessary, or maybe it is not realized that there is data to look at.  SES can take “dead” data and bring it to “life.”  It costs money to collect data and to let it sit idle, not working for you, is wasteful.  Let SES make your data useful so you can Rise Above The Noise.

How does SES do it? We have access to high power statistical software that can analyze just about any data imaginable.  We own the software and computers so you don’t have to.  We have the expertise to evaluate, analyze, and interpret all your dat
