Lean Six Sigma for Supply Chain Management 11 Jan. 2007
By Eric Fleming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is most definitely a book for Supply Chain and Operations Management practitioners. If the reader is looking for a high level review of the subject matter, I would not recommend this book. This book is a serious, dense study of the material with practical applications and techniques.

Of the various industry texts that I have read, this is probably the "slowest read" mostly because there is so much content and meaning in each section. At the same time, the book design is modular so that the practitioner may skip chapters and study just their focus area. Mr. Martin definitely displays his expertise with fluff-free, accurate, and useful information. A must read for people serious about transforming their supply chains.

Good Introduction to a Complex Subject 14 Nov. 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The majority of books and studies in the six sigma quality area deal with controlling your own manufacturing process - maybe that's because manufacturing quality people buy the books. But most of the problems that occur with actually developing, installing and using six sigma lie not in manufacturing but in managing the outside vendor supply chain.

Mr. Martin, a long time worker in six sigma and in lean supply chain management has put together a book that is completely understandable for such a complex subject. If anything the book is just a bit to understandable so that you may become convinced that six sigma is easy. It's not. An awful lot of big companies have been talking about six sigma but have proven unable to get to that standard.

All and all, this is an excellent overview of the six sigma concept when combined with Lean supply chain concepts. It's certainly a good place to start.

Lean Manufacturing 30 Mar. 2009
By G. Vandedrink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An absolute must for middle to execute level management that is serious about creating or improving a lean culture. Generally a subject that gets little discussion as to its important aspect of manufacturing operations, this book ties material supply chain principles and their importance to creating a sustaining continuous improving environment. I highly recommend this reading to the executive level and its use as a training guide for the realization of significant cost savings.

Lean Six Sigma 17 Feb. 2012
By Derek Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a well-writtern book that is content-rich and clearly illustrates that the author is both experience and skilled on the subject. The only downside is that the presentation is particularly poor. The pages are "busy" with very little spacing and easy-to-read structure. I find it daunting to read a long section as a consequence. It is a pity, because it spoils a very good book.
