This is a quick reference book on techniques for improving "speed, quality, and cost." The book focuses on DMAIC--(Page 1): "Define- Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control." As a toolbook, the volume focuses on "how to do it." In the end, this is a useful introduction to the subject, although discussion does not go into great detail on various techniques.

Shelves: 6-sigma, lean
A must have for anyone trying to implement LSS. I keep this in my Kaizen Toolbox and reference it frequently.

Besides being a good reference it is an idea generator.

You need to know how to use these tools to be able to take full advantage of the book. It's a great book, just not for beginners.

Perfect reference when working on a project. Won’t go into the statistical details but can help provide some guidance for issues.

Pretty much does what it says on the cover. It won't teach you LSS (though it's sensibly organised and does lead you through the techniques in a logical order), but is a really good little reference book.

This is a great synopsis of methods for performing a lean six sigma project. It is a good reminder of the various tools from the phases of DMAIC. A handy resource to have.
