    • 23. Show Your Care About Monitoring the Key Data • Results Data – data that measures attributes of the product to be delivered. – Costs, Times, Quantities, Quality • Conditions Data – data that measures the attributes of the process that produces the product to be delivered. – Capability, Commitment, Collaboration
    • 24. Be Prepared to Communicate Through Common Understanding Automotive Engineers Long Ago Defined the Critical Measures for Safe, Effective Engine Operation. 24
    • 25. The Basic Automobile Dashboard Automotive Gauge Odometer Clock Fuel Level Speedometer Tachometer Oil Pressure Oil Temperature Water Pressure Water Temperature Voltmeter 25
    • 26. What Questions Are We Asking? Automotive Gauge Asks the Question Odometer How far have we gone? Clock How much time has it taken? Fuel Level How far can we go? Speedometer How fast are we going now? Tachometer How intensely is engine working? Oil Pressure Do we have enough ‘lubrication’ to keep parts working well together? Oil Temperature How smooth are interactions? Water Pressure Do we have enough coolant to keep the engine producing? Water Temperature How effective is the coolant in keeping the engine cool? Voltmeter Is enough energy being applied to the other important systems? 26
    • 27. What Measures What? Automotive Gauge Asks the Question To Measure Odometer How far? Deliverables Delivered Clock How long? Duration Fuel Level How much further? Input Units Available Speedometer How fast? Deliverables per Unit of Time Tachometer How intensely? Effort Intensity Oil Pressure Do we have enough lubrication to smooth interactions? Supply of Lubricant to Smooth Interaction Between Components Oil Temperature How smooth are interactions? Ability of Lubricant to smooth Interaction Between Components Water Pressure Do we have enough coolant to keep the engine producing? Supply of Coolant to dissipate excess engine heat Water Temperature How effective is the coolant in keeping the engine cool? Ability of Coolant to dissipate engine heat Voltmeter Is enough energy being applied to the other important systems? Ability to Support other Control and Comfort Systems 27
