Description: A local automotive seat supplier experienced a major quality problem in the fabrication of the metal seat frame used in the manufacture of the front bucket seats of automobiles. This quality concern was failure of the seat cushion weld nuts to adhere to the metal seat frame during random quality torque testing at the lower specification limit. A company executive contacted Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and requested a six-sigma study to determine the root causes of the problem and to work with his engineering and operations personnel to implement countermeasures. The six-sigma project team was setup by the company Project Champion and was led by the university Project Leader. The team consisted of the company welding engineer, three operations personnel, the MTSU professor, a graduate student, and three undergraduates. This paper focuses on the Design-of-Experiments portion of this project that required close collaboration between the industry and the university personnel. Note: This paper to be presented at the CIEC 2006 Conference.
