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.

Colin Barr.

Despite being for a slightly earlier edition of Minitab (it does not matter) this is still a very accessible book and an excellent go to book for refreshing your memory on a particular topic. Highly recommended.

The 1st line of the publisher review states that "Although there are many texts available on statistical methods for the monitoring and improvement of quality, none focus on of the use of Minitab"

This is quite untrue. There are several books available on Six Sigma and Minitab, as follows:

"Six Sigma and MINITAB" by Quentin Brook. Published 2 years before this one, cheaper, much more practical, and in stock!

OR

"Statistics for Six Sigma Green Belts with Minitab and JMP" by David Levine. Quite detailed, but good if you want to know all the statistical equations behind the scenes.

I mentioned this problem to Amazon a while ago, but they continue to provide this book as the #1 bestselling "Six Sigma and MINITAB" boko - despite it not being in stock, and not selling as many as others further down the results list.
