From the Back Cover:

Capitalize on Distribution Models to Achieve Accuracy and Precision in Six Sigma Analysis

There's no better way for Six Sigma practitioners to improve their statistical skills than with Six Sigma Distribution Modeling. This expert guide shows them how to apply distribution models and statistical modeling tools to analyze systems with accuracy and precision?and stand out from their competitors.

With the added value of Crystal Ball simulation software, this unique reference enables users to quickly select models to represent random processes…develop dynamic simulation tools…evaluate multiple strategies and outcomes in one easy procedure…and understand which inputs control the variability of their forecasts.

Six Sigma Distribution Modeling also helps technical professionals to identify and reduce their risks in the planning stage of projects, prior to costly implementation, and to graphically communicate statistical information to clients, managers, and peers. This vital statistical modeling reference features:

  • Clear, concise guidance on selecting distribution models
  • Goodness-of-fit testing
  • Step-by-step calculation methods
  • Detailed explanations of numerous distribution families
