The New "Pocket Guide" for Six-Sigma Black Belts.
By Matt Rowe
- March 10, 2006
This is a much more powerful resource for making good use of Minitab and Six-Sigma than many people may realize. However, a highly experienced statistician or someone with extensive experience in a Six-Sigma culture may find this book to be fairly basic. This is likely the case in a technical or manufacturing environment. In contrast, a new Six Sigma practitioner or someone working in a service environment in which process analysis might not be as sophisticated will consider this book an absolute gem!
The value is not just in its clear and concise explanation of how to use Minitab "in" Six-Sigma. The real value lies in the easy to understand application of the Six-Sigma DMAIC methodology with practical and understandable examples of statistical analysis while using Minitab.

Finally! A text that connects the dots!

I purchased this book hoping it would help me quickly patch some gaps in my understanding of statistics and Minitab v14. And it will. Most importantly, they get that we don't want to take a course, we just want to know enough to get the work done. --- So the book has enough of an explanation to help the reader figure out whatever their working on. Perfect!
As background, I had quite a bit of training in statistics a few years ago. My job did not require that I use most of it. Now, I'm in a job that does, and I need to get up to speed quickly. I found this book to be a good refresher and reference.
Having been exposed to the different tools, I understand them in general but which do I use? The book has decision grids.
When it comes to using Minitab's menus to apply the theory, what goes where when I'm filling in the blanks - How is the theory applied? Added to that, I used some features of Minitab v13 - but v14 seems to be a whole lot different... read more
Very practical guide to Six Sigma
By S. Cunningham
- December 7, 2005
I am a Six Sigma Black Belt in the healthcare industry. I have reviewed many different books and reference guides on Six Sigma, but I have found this one to be the most straightforward and practical one of all. I only keep a couple reference books in my brief case, and this is one of them. Minitab users will appreciate the examples and screenshots. The example data files are also available for download. I highly recommend this guide to any Green Belt or Black Belt involved in Six Sigma.
