Six Sigma: Advanced Tools for Black Belts and Master Black Belts
The 2007 winner of the Masing Book Prize sets out important SixSigma concepts and a selection of up-to-date tools for qualityimprovement in industry.
Six Sigma is a widely used methodology for measuring andimproving an organization’s operational performance through arigorous analysis of its practices and systems.
This book presents a series of papers providing a systematic‘roadmap’ for implementing Six Sigma, following theDMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) phasedapproach. Motivated by actual problems, the authors offerinsightful solutions to some of the most commonly encounteredissues in Six Sigma projects, such as validation of normality,experimentation under constraints and statistical control ofcomplex processes. They also include many examples and case studiesto help readers learn how to apply the appropriate techniques toreal-world problems.
Provides a comprehensive introduction to Six Sigma, with acritical strategic assessment and a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses,Opportunities and Threats) analysis.
Presents some prominent design features of Six Sigma, and anewly proposed roadmap for healthcare delivery.
Sets out information on graphical tools, including fishbonediagrams, mind-maps, and reality trees.
Gives a thorough treatment of process capability analysis fornon-normal data.
Discusses advanced tools for Six Sigma, such as statisticalprocess control for autocorrelated data.
Consolidating valuable methodologies for process optimizationand quality improvement, Six Sigma: Advanced Tools for BlackBelts and Master Black Belts is a unique reference forpractising engineers in the electronics, defence, communicationsand energy industries. It is also useful for graduate studentstaking courses in quality assurance.
