From the Back Cover:

Detailed guidance on developing Lean Six Sigma processes

In the race to remain competitive in a global economy, businesses are looking for methods to continuously improve software projects and to make the software they produce more reliable. Increasingly, government agencies and commercial companies are turning to Lean implementations of Six Sigma project management as a viable solution.

Practical Support for Lean Six Sigma Software Process Definition illustrates how software process definition, documentation, and improvement should be an integral part of every software engineering effort. The book begins with the fundamentals of software engineering, and goes on to supply software project managers and development staff with the materials needed to define their core software development processes and practices. Next, it helps support the refinement of these software and systems engineering processes using Lean Six Sigma methods.

Practical Support for Lean Six Sigma Software Process Definition offers:

  • An overview of Lean Six Sigma methodologies

  • Detailed organizational policy examples

  • An integrated set of over 40 deployable document templates

  • Examples of over 70 common work products required in support of process improvement activities

  • Examples of organizational delineation of process documentation

The goal is to provide practical support for individuals responsible for the development and documentation of software processes and procedures and present the reader with an integrated set of documents that support the initial requirements of a Lean Six Sigma program. Practical Support for Lean Six Sigma Software Process Definition is the only book available specifically geared to help engineering teams, software project managers, and quality managers implement Lean Six Sigma processes from an IEEE standards-driven and software engineering best practices approach.
