Treasure Chest of Six Sigma Growth Methods, Tools and Best Practices Excerpt

2.3 MB | 3 files | null DOC,null PDF

This collection of Six Sigma tools covers a wide range of issues with the best practices framework, from statistical techniques, including ANOVA and multi-vari charts to benchmarks, capability and cost/benefit analyses.

This reference is the first comprehensive how-to collection of Six Sigma tools, methodologies and best practices. Leading implementer Lynne Hambleton covers the entire Six Sigma toolset, including more than 70 different tools — ranging from rigorous statistical and quantitative tools to "softer" techniques.

The toolset is organized in an easy-to-use, alphabetical encyclopedia and helps professionals quickly select the right tool, at the right time, for every business challenge.

Hambleton systematically discusses which questions each tool is designed to answer; how the tool compares with similar tools; when to use it; how to use it step-by-step; how to analyze and apply the output; and which other tool to use with it. To further illustrate and clarify tool usage, she presents hundreds of figures, along with never-before-published hints, tips, and real-world, "out-of-the-box" examples.

Coverage includes:

  • Real-world guidance to help practitioners raise the most important questions and determine the best resolution
  • Statistical techniques, including ANOVA, multi-vari charts, Monte Carlo simulations, normal probability plots and regression analysis
  • Benchmarks, capability and cost/benefit analyses, Porter's Five Forces, scorecards, stakeholder analysis and brainstorming techniques

This excerpt comes from the second chapter ("The Six Sigma Encyclopedia of Business Tools and Techniques") of "Treasure Chest of Six Sigma Growth Methods, Tools, and Best Practices" by Lynne Hambleton.
