- The most useful course I"ve taken at Chalmers (Exchange student spring term)» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- 70 present (or more) of grade should come from the report»
- Mr Singapore»
- Focus on mindset like general approach with define the problem first...»
- I would prefer more team time on schedule, for example 4-6 hours every session.»
- The projects are really good, and it is nice to see different industries in the presentations.»
- Add some statistical session because of some of the students coming from non statistical baground, so it is hard to understand»
- The industrial coupling through the projects. The variety of teachers (very inspiring all of you! The Goh session was excellent also. )»
- good mixing between teachers and industry lectures.»
- Practical experiments and exercises.»
- Project work joint by industry and CTH.»
- THe mixture of lectures and exercises»
- Half-time presentations.»
- The certification.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- There should be a "correct" course-pm, referring to exam date, date for hand in, contents of report and presentation. There should be clear guidelines for what should be included in the report. There should be an introduction cours for te company representatives. It is too much repetition for the QOM students. »
- Multiple choice exams is not something I"m a big fan of, would rather take a regular exam»
- Present the information like schedule etc. earlier and more often on the web page.»
- I would like to choose the person I am working with for the project...»
- The DoE professor did not really speak about the interesting things. I think the interesting part is to learn what to think about on the data you put into minitab or whatever program, and how to interpre the results. Not what happens in the middle Many of the lecture fells boring since they do not fit to each other, or maybe they do but I did not understand??»
- The exam»
- try to find some time for parties. interactions between All students and Industrial participants and teaching staff. from these interactions students can learn and share their experiences and views from each other »
- I think many of the industrial representatives are very poor on statistics. Being an old man, I did my statistics many years ago and tried to catch up. Conclusion: An optional class (say 4-8hrs) in the very beginning on basic statistics relevant for TEK170 could give even higher benefits. Alternative: List prerequisites. People lacking these could be encouraged to read a summary document you guys could outline, or refer to "Statistics for Dummies" or similar»
- This that you give the popportunity to have one session befor för companie representaive To tell the student thap plannig i important for us that work.»
- better theoretical structure, since it is a course, it should have been clearer what is expected in each of the DMAIC phase. Better and earlier discussion about the report of the project since it ways eavily in the final grade.»
- An even earlier start for the industry participants to be able to start the project when the students are connecting. The importance of managers prticipation at the first session»
- The session in the improve pahse (DOE)with prof.T.N Goh, was on too high level. The lesson by Peter with practical actions was more understandable. »
- Any better solution for 30day-minitab license?»
- it is very complex and iterative in real life. The course could be more clearly layed out in order to make the stucture of the course more easy to follow. have checkpoints/small reports at end of each phase.»
- Take some bits sooner then others. for example DOE, »
- Don"t force the industrial participants to participate on lessons that won"t contribute to learning. Many of the lessons were, unfortunately, just sitting out time and not very giving. The same regards the students, many lessons didn"t contribute (at all) to learning. The content is very good but can in many cases be compromised from 8 to 4 hours!»
- Stricter requirements from the participating companies and their representatives.»
- Do not allocate international students for medical cases. The language used in hosipital is Swedish, thus international students could not participate in interviews and some meetings.Alsoa lot of time is used just for translating stuffs, this is a waste of workload.»

16. Additional comments

- Teachers should be more synchronised regarding decisions. There have been many different opinions regarding content of report and opposition, dates for hand-in of report and how big part of the grade that comes from the report. Administration say one thing, and the differen teachers says other things. »
- Secure that industrial participants have the needed time resources. Course is really extensive.»
- The cooperation with the companies are extremely important. The first session together with company managers, was very good.»
- nine group members was hopeless.»
- More teaching on what to think of when using the tools. How to use them we can mostly find out ourselves. Maybe there could be a case that the tools could be applied in throughout the course to make them easier to get to know. Now we know a lot about islands in the SixSigma sea, instead of understanding the sea and put the tools in it.»
- Thank you for a very inspiring and very useful course indeed!»
- The final exam was difficult. I would liked to have it in swdedish.»
- Very interesting course. »
- some of the statistical lectures where hard to understand. might have some additional literature with reading advises for them»
- All good. Some students was just there to sitt off the time. Did not feel so interessted. »
