Robin Henderson; Six Sigma Quality Improvement With Minitab
on 8 June 2007
This is a first class volume. As the title suggests, it concentrates on how to analyse data as part of the wider quality improvement process. It is pitched at Six Sigma Black Belt level. Unlike some other books on the subject which take you only part way, Robin Henderson gives sufficient detail to help you fully conclude on your analysis. It is jam packed with practical examples, many of which come from the authors own consultancy experience.
Robin Henderson explains that "this is not a book to be read in an armchair." It is meant to accompany hands on work, with Minitab fired up by your side.
In addition to the fully explained case studies, there is a comprehensive list of examples set out at the end of each chapter, and these are further supported by the companion web site. Given that one of the keys to becoming a fully fledged, successful Black Belt is confident manipulation and analysis of data, there is plenty to practise on here. Students need look no further than this work.
Even as an experienced practitioner of process improvement I find myself regularly dipping into Robin Hendersons book. It's just downright useful ! The more I use it, the more I like it. I have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Whether you are an aspiring or experienced Black Belt, Six Sigma Quality Improvement With Minitab should be part of your reference resource.
Thank you Mr. Henderson.
