In all walks of life, at some point in time, we all use the process of problem solving. We all talk about it, we all use it, but chances are we all mean different things by it. Six Sigma and Beyond: Problem Solving and Basic Mathematics organizes the topic and provides a structured approach based on the scientific method. Specifically designed to address the issue of cognitive functioning this volume provides a generic approach to problem solving. The Six Sigma methodology demands that problems be resolved in such a way that both the customer and organization benefit. Not a bad expectation. In this book, the author addresses what a problem is and systematically defines the process of resolving it. He stresses the importance of the team - people power - dedicated to solving a specific problem - process power - and how this combination leads to efficiencies that please the customer and enhance the bottom line. Identifying the problem is only half the task. The next step is to resolve it. This book gives you a detailed rationale and a theoretical explanation of the problem solving process. It focuses on problem solving from a quality perspective and addresses key concepts in team dynamics. It provides an overview of the basic tools of problem solving. In addition, the author introduces the Global Problem Solving (GPS) process. This strategic program brings the focus of quality programs back to eliminating mistakes, waste, and rework. The book highlights the basic mathematics used in all phases of quality control. It introduces each mathematical concept, gives an example, and proceeds with several exercises that demonstrate the solution. With Six Sigma and Beyond: Problem Solving and Basic Mathematics you get the techniques and statistical tools to go beyond theory to real-world applications and take quality management to the next level.

Essentials for the Improvement of Healthcare Using Lean & Six Sigma is all about real and immediate quality improvement. Written by D.H. Stamatis, a renowned expert in organizational development and quality, the book addresses concerns that can be ameliorated with minimal government intervention. Detailing immediate paths for improvement fundamental to primary care, hospitals, and managed care, the book: Introduces much-needed mechanics of change, including transitioning from hierarchical groups to interactive inclusionary teams Focuses on customer satisfaction as a key indicator of quality Explains how Lean and Six Sigma tools can be readily applied to healthcare Spotlights primary care, including how to define and redesign its process and develop better metrics Presents IT applications that will improve billing, documentation, and patient care Examines Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award criteria as it applies to healthcare Illustrates quality improvements and best practices through real world case studies Includes a companion CD with Six Sigma forms and formulas, Lean improvement tools, and other quality tools and worksheets Whether you think advances in technology and medicine, coupled with freedom of choice, makes the U.S. healthcare system the best in the world, or whether you believe growing costs, regulatory morass, and a tort-obsessed culture drop it to the bottom; it is evident that the processes currently employed and the subsequent defensive medicine philosophy that has resulted will not be able to meet the future demands of our aging society. Through Six Sigma and Lean, this text moves the focus from reactive controls to the proactive efficiency required to implement real and sustainable quality improvements that will allow us to forge a system that is all about wellness.

The second edition will include four new topics that fully address the scope of Lean: Hoshin Kanri (HK), Managing for Daily Improvement (MDI), Production Preparation Process (3P), and Lean in project management (especially for projects in product development). HK is a management planning process that evolved in Japan concurrent with Lean and early adopters employed it. MDI addresses the 5th S (sustain) in the 5S process. Together, HK and MDI answer questions such as: How is Lean tied to strategic planning? What is the role of management in Lean? How are daily improvements tied to organizational goals? and How are improvements sustained? The two topics address Lean as a "culture."

Six Sigma has arisen in the last two decades as a breakthrough Quality Management Methodology. With Six Sigma, we are solving problems and improving processes using as a basis one of the most powerful tools of human development: the scientific method. For the analysis of data, Six Sigma requires the use of statistical software, being R an Open Source option that fulfills this requirement. R is a software system that includes a programming language widely used in academic and research departments. Nowadays, it is becoming a real alternative within corporate environments. The aim of this book is to show how R can be used as the software tool in the development of Six Sigma projects. The book includes a gentle introduction to Six Sigma and a variety of examples showing how to use R within real situations. It has been conceived as a self contained piece. Therefore, it is addressed not only to Six Sigma practitioners, but also to professionals trying to initiate themselves in this management methodology. The book may be used as a text book as well.

Praise for Six Sigma for Financial Professionals "Dr. Stamatis has tackled an area that is just learning the tremendous value of the Six Sigma methodology and how to use it. The financial community is proving that Six Sigma can and will reduce errors and prevent mistakes from occurring. Dr. Stamatis lays out the formula for success by starting with the foundations of Six Sigma and then moving into its application in financial arenas. He has given numerous examples and references that will assist in developing this methodology into a reality for your organization." -Roderick A. Munro, PhD Business Improvement Coach "A strong and thorough blueprint to follow for companies that are planning to implement Six Sigma. The book helps one understand how to focus on processes, not just projects, to help achieve business transformation." -Tammy S. Mitchell Vice President Controller TRW Automotive "Dr. Stamatis's approach to Six Sigma is insightful and would benefit readers outside the quality sector and quality professionals alike. The book is refreshing in truthfully identifying Six Sigma as a collection of proven methodologies, not a new 'silver bullet.'" -William M. Harral, CQA, CQE, CQMgr, CRE, ASQ-Fellow CEO, Arch Associates LLC "As a rule, financial executives focus on the bottom line for directions and ultimate decision-making. Dr. Stamatis's manuscript is clearly written, easily followed, and absolutely describes the potential benefits of Six Sigma and the need to incorporate it for long-term survival in any industry." -William P. Lianos President and Treasurer Michigan Rivet Corporation "Amid the crushing time crunch to compete, effective leaders have found an important tool in the Six Sigma method.

Researchers and professionals in all walks of life need to use the many tools offered by the statistical world, but often do not have the necessary experience in both concept and application. No matter what your profession, sooner or later numbers need to be crunched, and often you need to understand how to do it, and why it is important. Quality control is no different. Six Sigma and Beyond: Statistics and Probability covers the concepts of some useful statistical tools, appropriate formulae for specific tools, the connection of statistics to probability, and how to use them. This volume introduces the relationship of statistics, probability, and reliability as they apply to quality in general and to Six Sigma in particular. The author brings the theoretical into the practical by providing statistical techniques, tests, and methods that the reader can use in any organization. He reviews basic parametric and non-parametric statistics, probability concepts and applications, and addresses topics for both measurable and attribute characteristics. He delineates the importance of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data not from an academic point of view but from a practical perspective. This is not a textbook but a guide for anyone interested in statistical, probability, and reliability to improve processes and profitability in their organizations. When you begin a study of something, you want to do it well. You want to design a good study, analyze the results properly, and prepare a cogent report that summarizes what you've found. Six Sigma and Beyond: Statistics and Probability shows you how to use statistical tools to improve your processes and give your organization the competitive edge.
