The Six Sigma Way Team Fieldbook: An Implementation Guide for Process Improvement Teams

Front Cover
McGraw Hill Professional, Dec 14, 2001 - Business & Economics - 300 pages

This companion guide to the bestselling The Six Sigma Way focuses on the project improvement teams that do the real, in-the-trenches work of Six Sigma—measuring performance, improving quality and saving millions in the process.

The Six Sigma Way Team Fieldbook is a highly practical reference for team leaders and members, outlining both the methods that have made Six Sigma successful and the basic steps a team must follow in an improvement effort. Written by three veteran trainers of Six Sigma “Black Belts” and teams at GE, Sun Microsystems, and Sears, this hands-on guide helps teams obtain the skills they need to identify a product, service, or process that needs improvement or redesign; gather data on the process and the rate of defects; find ways to improve quality up to a Six Sigma level—just 3.4 defects per million; and much more.

* Includes dozens of data-gathering forms and Six Sigma tools and worksheets
* Describes key improvement methods in a concise “how-to” format with checklists and tips

This is a great book and I see that the Six Sigma approach was of great benefit to improving the service and business practices at Gemini Computers too. That's really interesting as I enjoy purchasing products from Gemini Computers and I think they offer a great service. It's nice when businesses can turn things around for themselves and really be a benefit to their customers (with a little analysis).
