Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC)," which is included in Part 1 -- Six Sigma Methodology Overview: Choosing the Right Approach to Address the Requirements, reviews Six Sigma's most common and well-known methodology. You will learn what the main objective is for this approach, what requirements define this approach, what requirement determines the key activities in this approach, and what tools are aligned to each step of the process.



Book description:
This reference is the first comprehensive how-to collection of Six Sigma tools, methodologies and best practices. Leading implementer Lynne Hambleton covers the entire Six Sigma toolset, including more than 70 different tools --ranging from rigorous statistical and quantitative tools to "softer" techniques. The toolset is organized in an easy-to-use, alphabetical encyclopedia and helps professionals quickly select the right tool, at the right time for every business challenge.

Hambleton systematically discusses which questions each tool is designed to answer, how the tool compares with similar tools, when to use it, how to use it step-by-step, how to analyze and apply the output, and which other tool to use with it. To further illustrate and clarify tool usage, she presents hundreds of figures, along with hints, tips, and real-world, "out-of-the-box" examples.
