How Can We Help You?

Dissertation and Thesis

You need to start writing your dissertation or thesis—and you know this. However, knowing and doing are two very different states, and I understand that starting your introduction for your dissertation can be the most challenging aspect of the entire writing process.

How do I begin? As such, I know exactly how to get your Introduction going such that I put you on the right track toward the ultimate goal: your Degree!

Chapter 1 Example:

Now, with the Introduction’s framework coming together, we must incorporate the“Statement of the Problem”wherein you begin drilling into the specific issue you will investigate. At this point particular, you can speak to the general population you will study—reiterating the general problem and the need for the study—before laying out the preliminary research method and design. The “Purpose of the Study” follows, which comprises a few sentences that summarize the motivating rationale behind the study. These sentences should include information about the research method, the research variables involved (i.e., independent, dependent, and relationship comparisons), the setting of the research, the population involved, and the audience about which the problem is of utmost importance. By now, you are creating something quite enticing for your readers and committee to set themselves upon.

The “Significance of the Study" or also known as the contribution it will make to the body of literature. Importantly, this section contextualizes your specific research problem—which strictly applies to the research community and experts in the field—by speaking more broadly to the general problem that affects the community at large. More specifically, this section speaks to how your research aims to add to existing knowledge surrounding the subject, while simultaneously identifying who will benefit from your completing this research. In short, this section contains specific information about the intended impact of the research you aim to conduct.

Statistics and Research Methods

Data Management

I am dedicated to detecting and correcting corrupt or inaccurate records from a record set, table, or database. The process of data cleaning includes data auditing, specification, execution, post-processing, and controlling. I use new methods--parsing, data transformation, duplicate elimination, and statistical methods. By analyzing the data using the values of mean, standard deviation, range, and clustering algorithms, we can find values that are unexpected and erroneous.   

Certified Six Sigma Training

The DMAIC project methodology has five phases:

1. Define the problem, the voice of the customer, and the project goals, specifically.

2. Measure key aspects of the current process and collect relevant data.

3. Analyze the data to investigate and verify cause-and-effect relationships. Determine what the relationships are, and attempt to ensure that all factors have been considered. Seek out of the defect under investigation.

4. Improve or optimize the current process based upon data analysis using techniques such as of experiments or mistake proofing, and standard work to create a new, future state process. Set up pilot runs to establish process capability.

5. Control the future state process to ensure that any deviations from target are corrected before they result in defects. Implement control systems such as statistical process control production boards, visual workplaces, and continuously monitor the process.
