Overview

The first plain-English guide to solving real-world problems with Six Sigma

So you're ready to improve your processes and products and satisfy your customers through Six Sigma--but you're not looking forward to navigating complicated statistics in order to get results. Now, Warren Brussee, a veteran Six Sigma manager who helped his teams generate millions of dollars in savings, explains how to use the powerful statistical tools of Six Sigma in easy-to-understand language.

In this step-by-step guide, you get a thorough overview of the Six Sigma methodology and techniques for successful implementation, as well as a clear explanation of DMAIC--the problem solving method used by Six Sigma Greenbelts for projects and process improvements. You'll see how to plot, interpret, and validate data for a Six Sigma project. You will use Excel to make Six Sigma problem-solving calculations in a wide range of areas, from sales and marketing to manufacturing, process work, equipment design, and more. Each chapter also features a brief review of what you've learned. Plus, you get:

  • A simplified form of the most common Six Sigma tools
  • All the basic Six Sigma formulas and tables
  • Dozens of Six Sigma statistical problem-solving case studies
  • A matrix for finding the right statistical tool to meet your needs
  • Basic Greenbelt training in one concise reference

Best of all, no background in statistics is required--you can start improving quality and initiating cost-saving improvements right away. With all these benefits and authoritative guidance, Statistics for Six Sigma Made Easy is the only reference you need to facilitate real-world application of Six Sigma tools.

Warren Brussee (Columbia, SC) spent 33 years at General Electric as an engineer, plant manager, and engineering manager. He has taught Six Sigma classes to both engineering and manufacturing teams.
