Many companies and consulting firms use Monte Carlo simulation in their Six Sigma training and analyses.  Palisade is proud to partner with these experts to promote the use of Monte Carlo simulation in DFSS, DMAIC, Lean and other Six Sigma areas.  The following companies include @RISK in their services, and Palisade recommends all of them for anyone seeking to help with implementing Six Sigma in their organizations.

Consulting With Impact, Ltd.

Consulting With Impact, Ltd. provides continuous improvement solutions for small and mid-sized companies that help identify and move them toward their ideal state. The CWI toolset includes Lean, Six Sigma and Behavioral Management tools along with heavy doses of PCS (Plain Common Sense).

The process for tool selection, target definition and execution is uniquely designed for each client to maximize their targeted financial, cultural and customer-related returns. (For a recent 6 month period, clients experienced an 11.5X annualized return on investment for their consulting and training dollars.)
In addition to providing high impact consulting, Consulting With Impact also provides training and executive coaching for their clients. CWI consultant resources recently participated in the development and delivery of coursework for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt curricula at the college level and have adapted the material for delivery on site for companies requiring tailored Six Sigma training. And their consultants are currently pursuing certification through the International Coach Federation to provide best-in-class coaching solutions for clients to retain and maximize the contribution of key employees.

Clients are growing more sophisticated and their requirements more demanding. Many have gone through the basic changes in their process flows and are now ready for more company-wide systems integration projects. Others have reduced variation successfully at the lower levels, and are now facing the next level of projects involving issues that have had several unsuccessful attempts at resolution. Both of these paths can generate significant rewards but also expose the company and its transformation effort to significant risk. To address these needs, CWI recently partnered with Palisade Corporation to add the @RISK simulation and optimization suite to its product and consulting offerings. Whether generating a simulation to estimate the impact of a change on a customer or developing the optimum solution for nagging process issues, simulation reduces the risk and anxiety experienced by the client. The ease of applying the Palisade software suite allows both the consultant and the client to quickly see the best path and, just as important, demonstrate it for others including employees, senior management, customers and investors.

Companies in North America and Europe in a variety of manufacturing and service industries have benefited from the CWI transformation approach. If you would like more information or would like to see how the @RISK tools have been applied to CWI clients, visit the Consulting With Impact, Ltd. website at

François Momal is a Master Black Belt. He graduated from Ecole Centrale Paris in 1983 (Applied Mathematics major). He has worked for several big industrial groups (Thales, EADS, GE Health Care, Dassault Systèmes) as a complex system designer. For example at GE Health Care he was responsible for the design and development of a new digital full filed mamograph where he has used DFSS (Design For Six Sigma). He has also spent two years at Lockheed Martin in Austin, TX working on the design of a big Nato software.

Throughout his career he has used applied mathematics for different applications: design of CADCAM software (Catia), design and implementation of decision aid expert systems for the French military, design of a non-monotonous logic inference engine at Alcatel Research (Marcoussis), design and development of active noise control algorithms.

Today he is a Lean Six Sigma consultant and trainer. He has trained and certified (IASSC) more than two hundred Green Belt and Black Belt (Industry and Services).

He is using Monte Carlo simulation within his Green Belt and Black Belt training courses. Monte Carlo simulation is an appropriate tool to identify the process steps that need to be improved in priority (within a complex multi steps process). Also Monte Carlo simulation is very interesting when you need to quantify the risk taken when a manager agrees on a figure.

Also François Momal teaches his trainees how to use Monte Carlo simulation for solving tolerancing issues when assembling parts within industry.
