Bass, Issa and Barbara Lawton.



362 pages




For beginners and experienced practitioners, Bass, a Six Sigma Master Black Belt and consultant, and Lawton, a Six Sigma Black Belt who works at a aerospace organization in the UK, present a guide to Lean Six Sigma project execution that follows the DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control) roadmap. Each chapter addresses one aspect and specific tools used to measure and analyze data, find root causes of problems, and determine options for resolution. The guide includes statistical theory and development and instruction on how to define project goals, schedule tasks, assess the cost of quality, perform process capabilities analysis, apply metrics to determine baseline performance, use analysis techniques, and monitor production performance using statistical process control, among other topics. Software suites SigmaXL and Minitab are used in the examples, and practice files can be downloaded from a website. There is no bibliography.
