9780471296591: Implementing Six Sigma: Smarter Solutions Using Statistical Methods

Filled with excellent diagrams and examples, the book discusses the theories of Edward Deming and other quality gurus, as well as the history of the Six Sigma program. It helps you lay the foundation for a Six Sigma program and discusses how to get upper management involved in the process.

But the heart of the book is the statistical tools used in Six Sigma. From FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) to QFD (Quality Functional Deployment) and DOE (Design of Experiment), Implementing Six Sigma is your guide to understanding these powerful improvement techniques. Rather than just a brief overview, it breaks down each tool into a separate chapter and gives an in-depth analysis of each process. The chapters contain exercises that help you understand the tools and how to best utilize each one to achieve a minimum number of defects in the production process.

Written in an engaging style, this book is your guide to implementing a Six Sigma program. Contains appendices with numerous examples and copies of actual implementation guides used at Motorola.

From the Back Cover:

From the Foreword . . .

"I have seen many Six Sigma approaches, but Breyfogle's Implementing Six Sigma is the most comprehensive of them all."--Frank Shines, Principal, IBM Global Services, Measurement Methods Consulting.

"The key to business success is doing the right thing faster and better and more efficiently than your competition. The Six Sigma approach aims at achieving this and Forrest Breyfogle has written the most systematic and comprehensive manual available on the subject."--Paul Tobias, Manager, Statistical Methods Group, SEMATECH

"[This book] illustrates how most organizations can become more competitive, reduce defect levels, and improve cycle times. It consolidates not only the traditional Six Sigma process measurements and improvement tools, but also many other useful methodologies into one easy-to-understand text."--Bill Wiggenhorn, Senior Vice President of Motorola Training and Education; President, Motorola University.

Implementing Six Sigma demystifies Six Sigma methods for today's users and offers invaluable guidance on how to choose and use Six Sigma tools effectively. The Six Sigma implementation road map the book describes integrates basic methods such as FMEA, QFD, process flowcharting, and continuous improvement tools (e.g., Pareto chart and cause-and-effect diagram) with a full range of powerful statistical techniques and concepts--crucial practical know-how for implementation practitioners and managers.
