Imagine that you are running a product line and producing products that you are familiar with (this could be ones from your own organisation or products that you use at home). Over the last 6 weeks you have seen an increase in the number of defective parts produced and you need to try to resolve this.
Take a Design of Experiments process approach and, using the Bloom Lean Enterprise Experiment Canvas, discuss the steps you would take to investigate the problem. What tools would you use to analyse and present your findings.
Your assignment should be 2500 words ±10%.
Draw on the module content, core texts, required reading and associated resources (as well as other research you might do). Reference the sources in Harvard referencing style.
