Unformatted text preview: aches were tested using two field experiments and one analytical study. The two field experiments, testing the first two approaches, were conducted in different manufacturing cells at the IADC and included an implementation of each approach and a measurement of the impact of the implementation based on an appropriate set of control data. The analytical study was conducted to assess the potential impact of right-sizing equipment, and was based primarily on data collected at the IADC. The next chapter gives more detail on the study design, and will describe the specific methodology taken to test these hypotheses. Chapter 4 Methodology 4.1 Study Design Each component of the hypothesis was tested in the field at the IADC, and the overall study included two field experiments and a more analytical approach conducted over a six month period from February to August, 2010. The first field experiment involved conducting team based continuous improvement projects incorporating energy data on individual manufacturing equipment. This experiment was...
