There isn't a single way to solve problems in continuous improvement; that's why EngineRoom is getting new roadmaps for your projects! We're excited to roll out this new feature that allows you to use the roadmap that best identifies and corrects your problem. The new roadmaps are:
These additional options allow you to customize EngineRoom for your organization. Log in to your account today to see how you can now match EngineRoom to your organization's roadmap.
EngineRoom is proud to release our first Machine Learning tool. The Classification and Regression Tree is a foundational analysis tool that enables you to:
This tool is user-friendly and easy to implement, making it the perfect choice for understanding root causes or identifying patterns.
Start your project off on the right foot with EngineRoom's Critical Questions menu. This new dropdown puts essential questions front-of-mind to help you know what to do next in your project.
EngineRoom is introducing two new statistics tools to enable Process Capability for Non-Normal Data. Find them in the Measure menu or Quality Tools menu under "Non-Normal Process Capability."
The new FlexiBatch Block in Process Playground adds power to your process modeling with new functionality.
Interpreting results in a Process Capability, Gauge R&R, and Attribute Agreement Analysis study just got even easier with these new references:
Quick Reference Table: This practical implementation pulls the most relevant data from your study into a single table at the top of your output.
Recommendation: The study now presents a simplified text recommendation on the output based on new user inputs.
We're making it easier to analyze and interpret your data by organizing and presenting the most relevant information to your study front and center.
Visualize your project timelines with a slick update to our Gantt Chart. Easily map out dependencies, see potential conflicts, and manage time to completion for all your projects. Organize your task list by dragging and dropping and nesting tasks that are grouped together. Documenting your project plan has never been this easy. We 'Gantt' wait for you to try it!
Classic or Simplified? Wherever you start, enjoy complete flexibility in defining your 'Whys', documenting countermeasures, and annotating! Keep it super 'Simple' with a 5-Why diagram and reserved spaces for countermeasures or choose 'Classic' for a more in depth analysis. Bonus: it integrates into our project tracking software, TRACtion!
We recognize that your company may operate in a regulated environment, and agencies like the FDA need more than just "our word" when it comes to validation. To this end, we put together a software validation kit to make it simple for your IT department to run a validation test on EngineRoom. The kit includes documentation on our development process, our security practices, datasets from NIST and corresponding EngineRoom output images. The best part: you will have all of this preloaded into EngineRoom along with the corresponding instructions.
Move seamlessly from brainstorming on an Affinity Diagram to defining CTQCs. Then select your design using Cause & Effect Matrix, Basic QFD, or Pugh Analysis before validating your design with the new scorecard. Your information will auto-populate the next template to reduce work and potential for mistakes. Login to see these new features for yourself!
Tell your story in your own way. Choose the styling and colors that best fit your data visualization. We fine tuned EngineRoom's charts to provide high resolution output that goes from number crunching to presentation in a couple quick clicks. Look sharp, be sharp.
Introduce your students to all the process improvement tools with a step‐by‐step tour of how to use each tool in EngineRoom. No need to prepare extra class materials — slide sets are available for commonly used Lean and DMAIC tools. If students have questions when they're practicing or later doing project work, they can access the in‐product User Support that includes video tutorials and the same step‐by‐step instructions.
The revamped VOC tools—Affinity Diagram, CTQC, and Cause & Effect Matrix—help you to better analyze customer feedback and take action with confidence and clarity. We've also added a new feature that unifies these tools and creates a smooth flow of trackable information. A VOC roadmap now appears in the top corner of these new studies, signaling the passage of information from one study to the next.
Have a long list of studies? Organize your studies into folders to make them more accessible and visible. Name your folders according to your project phases, types of information, teammates, or other categories of your choice.
Identify the Special Case causes that affect the outcome and communicate them efficiently and effectively. Our Root Cause Tree allows you to brainstorm and build diagrams quickly, ready for projects and presentations alike.
Your working draft can now be presentation-ready with these new enhanced features.
We're proud to introduce the new and improved Process Playground, an online discrete event simulation and process modeling tool, now available in EngineRoom.
Test before you invest with by creating a virtual prototype of your process and experiment with solutions, without the real-life cost.
Choose how you want your tools organized.
The default DMAIC menu organizes tools by phase of a DMAIC project. The new Standard menu organizes the EngineRoom toolbox by function, including Planning, Statistics, Lean Tools, and more.
Go to the User menu in the upper-right corner of EngineRoom to change your menu type. Same tools, new format.
EngineRoom helps you get it right the first time. When you upload your data, empty data cells will be highlighted in red. You can also have EngineRoom check for numeric outlier values and inconsistencies in data type (numeric, text, or date). Identify potential issues early and proceed with confidence.
EngineRoom just got smarter! Guided mode is now available for charts, graphs, and statistical tools. Now, even if you haven't used a particular tool for a long time, you can proceed efficiently and confidently. We'll lead you through step-by-step from entering the right data to making sure you've considered the available options.
Develop a plan to keep stakeholders actively engaged to ensure projects are successful and the changes are sustained. This template guides you to identify both internal and external stakeholders and then to create a communications plan for the project's duration.
Take a look at the new landing page that provides a master view of your project work. It's a more visual way to display your project list and provides quicker, more visible access to your studies. There is also a new section for announcements, reminders, and helpful information.
See how to capture possible root causes and then easily print, export, and share your brainstorming with EngineRoom's updated fishbone diagram. (Also called Ishikawa or Cause & Effect Diagram.)
Take a look at the updates to EngineRoom's Hypothesis Testing Wizard. It streamlines the basic steps to help you setup and run tests with confidence, whether it's your first hypothesis test or you're a frequent user.
