TRENDING: Excellent Article on the Myths of Process Behavior Charts
We teach how to draw Process behavior Charts to trend safety data in the pre-Summit 2-Day TapRooT® Advanced Trending Techniques Course.
I learned about the techniques in Dr. Donald Wheeler’s excellent courses on the use of data in quality control. We took the lessons from Dr. Wheeler and applied them to infrequently occurring data (like safety data) and built a course to teach the methods to TapRooT® Users.
If you really like reading about trending I would suggest two reading assignments…
FIRST, read Chapter 5 of the 2008 TapRooT® Book (the black book).
NEXT, read this article by Dr. Wheeler:
If you prefer live instruction about trending and a chance to try the techniques and be tutored, plan on attending the pre-Summit 2-Day TapRooT® Advanced Trending Techniques Course on February 27-28, 2012, in Las Vegas.
At the course you will get a copy of one of Dr. Wheeler’s books and get a chance to use advanced trending techniques on real data. plus you will develop a plan to improve your data and make use of it to improve performance.
