SIRF Roundtables presents
Operational Excellence Roundtable
Common Interest Workgroup
Centreline Control / SPC
Host to be advised
SIRF Roundtables in New South Wales currently comprises in excess of 40 progressive organisations that are willing to network and share their best practices in a peer to peer learning environment, specialising in Operational Excellence and Industrial Maintenance.

The ‘Common Interest Work Group’ (CIWG) events are for operators/technical specialists looking to discuss with peers, specific topics they are working on, in and around their field of excellence.

Centerlining is a methodology used to reduce product and process variability and increase machine efficiency in manufacturing and other industrial processes.

The two objectives of Centerlining are to determine the best settings for a production process and to ensure the best settings are always used during production.

These process settings often consist of ranges, with upper and lower limits, to allow for flexibility to deal with outside influences (for example, to account for the changes that occur as certain components age or wear). While the original purpose may have been to ensure consistent product quality, several other purposes have evolved, including operating equipment within design limits or safety limits, ensuring adequate cooling or lubrication, and many others. 

Centerlining in Four Steps

To “Centerline” a process, you must perform these four steps:
1.    Identify the important process factors or “variables”
2.    Determine the best settings and ranges for all of the important variables – by grade or product if multiple products are being produced
3.    Determine how these variables affect the process and the product
4.    Ensure that the Centerlined settings are always used during production

Centerlining is a never-ending process, and continuous work on all of these steps is needed in order to reap the most benefits.

Come along and discuss this approach to reducing defects and variability in products.
