Vision and Mission Statement
Henry Ford believed and proved that industry holds the
solution to most of society's problems. Nothing has happened to change
this; manufacturing, and only manufacturing, can create almost
limitless wealth. Manufacturing is the foundation of the United States'
affluence and national security, and our nation must preserve and
expand its manufacturing base. Industrial methods can also reduce the
cost of services while improving their quality, and this has critical
implications for health care. It is the mission of Levinson
Productivity Systems to help clients achieve this vision through lean
manufacturing, statistical, and quality assurance methods.
New from Levinson Productivity
This is the first comprehensive treatment of non-normal
distributions that often appear in real factories as opposed to the
cooperative bell curves that populate most textbooks. Methods for
handling them do NOT rely on normal approximations or even
transformations. The book also addresses the effect of gage capability
on process performance indices and outgoing quality, and provides an
overview of multivariate methods.
February 2, 2010. We have read several articles
that suggest that long periods of sedentary work (e.g. at a computer)
increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. We therefore offer a free
downloadable recurring alarm that the user can set as a reminder to
stand, stretch, and/or walk around at user defined intervals. Freeware,
no warranties are implied or expressed, but we use it every day. Update
March 6 2017. We are now using a variable-height
desk that provides the option of standing while working. This has
delivered tangible health and productivity benefits.
