Latitude 64 is producing at a 5 Sigma level.

If true, huge win for disc manufacturing!

I'd love to know deviation standards for the other big dawgs.

Do you mean 6sigma?

5 S is a Lean thing pretty sure, not the same as 6 sigma

Can you explain this more, and why it's so important? (Plus I don't have FB and can't see what you're talking about)

It doesn't mean the discs will be more consistent, if that's what's beeing elluded to.

5S represents Japanese words that describe the steps of a workplace organization process. English equivalent words are shown in parenthesis

Seiri (Sort)
Seiton (Straighten, Set)
Seiso (Shine, Sweep)
Seiketsu (Standardize)
****suke (Sustain)
In simple terms, the five S methodology helps a workplace remove items that are no longer needed (sort), organize the items to optimize efficiency and flow (straighten), clean the area in order to more easily identify problems (shine), implement color coding and labels to stay consistent with other areas (standardize) and develop behaviors that keep the workplace organized over the long term (sustain).

Incorrect. Lean manufacturing principles define the types of waste. Sigma levels define the deviation in different manufacturing KPIs.


5 Sigma is merely the level before 6 Sigma. It is possible to produce at 2 Sigma, 3 Sigma, 4 Sigma...

Ah, duly noted. To think a disc manufacturer would even attempt to produce at advanced Sigma levels...

So are they producing at 2.5 std dev on either sid of nominal? Or are they just “5S-ing” their shop? Maybe you mean they are taking a stab at SPC? More sigmas is not better...

McBeth did use the Krait at times and for certain situations and tournaments. He talked about it in an ITB video that was made right around the time of a Japan Open. That tourney died off, unfortunately, and McBeth eventually dropped the Krait, and Innova dropped it as a sig disc. Too bad, too; the Krait is a good disc. It coulda been a contendah, like what McBeth made the Nova into...
