Part-2: Moving Beyond DMAIC and Six Sigma - Predictive Modeling & Text Analytics

Topic Summary:
During last month’s presentation in October, Kemal and Brian reviewed how the theory of predictive modeling and text analytics is being applied to modern Quality Engineering. Predictive Modeling is now being deployed by engineers to screen for process inputs of highest impact to yield/quality and 100s of manufacturing variables for likely causes of defects, without needing to wait for non-conformities and failures to show up in control charts and SPC analyses. Then, with Text Analytics, we explore how companies are gleaning new insights from raw, unstructured text data such as customer surveys, maintenance logs, and competitor product reviews. In this presentation, Kemal and Brian will walk through practical examples and best practices when using Predictive Modeling and Text Analytics.
