Six Sigma is a proven, powerful methodology for significant quality improvement. Though thousands have been trained in it, little has been written for those desiring to go beyond their basic training.
Beyond Six Sigma Statistics helps fill that gap by revealing important insights and many additional techniques that will significantly improve a Black Belt’s data analysis. The reader will learn that most correlation studies, MSA, process capability analyses, and regression analyses are substantially incorrect—and how to improve them. Superior methods for SPC, calculating sample sizes, handling batch processes, hypothesis testing, experiment design, and many other techniques are also covered.
Particularly targeted for engineers and Master Black Belts, Beyond Six Sigma Statistics is packed with ideas involving practical and simple applications of statistics that will raise their problem-solving techniques and project improvement results to a higher level.
