    Hi,
    I am new to Six Sigma and trying to understand tools and method for the same.
    I have bought books like :
    Introduction to Statistics- Neill A Weiss (Pearson Publication)
    Business Statistics- Levin, Rubin (Pearson Publication)
    But still my questions remains unanswered like :
    what tools to use  in which phase, how we identify data to be normal, which tools to use when, how we use regression and what is the use of regression, and all?
    Please help?
    Books that would be available in India?
    Regards
    Victor L

    Victor, Good morning!
     
    Have you been to any training about process improvements methodologies  (like Six Sigma or Lean or TQM) that may have explained the various improvement phases / steps?

    Applied Data Analysis for Process Improvement by James L. Lamprecht is a good introduction with some great examples.

    Victor, take a look at the iSixSigma Marketplace offering: OSSS Black Belt. It is the full instructor slide and text presentation for Black Belt training. It includes all necessary templates in e-form; that is you can save them as templates and use them for all your projects.
    I’ve found this very useful for a minimal cost.

    So Brandon,
    Are you associated with OSSS?  I’ve seen you pushing those slides 3 or 4 times recently.

    Victor –  go to the iSixSigma Home Page and notice the red text banner across the page. This is where iSixSigma offers items for sale. The DMAIC is offered by OSSS on that page.
    Matt – No, I have absolutely no financial interest in OSSS.
    Yes, I have mentioned it in what I felt were appropriate responses to various queries. Is that not what this site is about? People pose questions seeking useful information. I found this offering, have used it and feel it proper to make a person aware of it if it assists with their query.

    Six Sigma Quality Improvement with MINITAB by G Robin Henderson. Wiley 2006. is excellent, but you have to be a MINITAB user to follow it.
    If you fancy some serious study, you can’t beat Statistics for Experimenters, by Box, Hunter and Hunter, 2nd Ed. Wiley Interscience, 2005. Many of the grumpy old farts who visit this site will have been inspired and informed by the 1st edition back in the early 80’s, and the 2nd edition is even better.
    Both should be available in India.
    Good Luck

    The best all around reference book I have seen for the six sigma tools is titled
     
    Implementing Six Sigma
    author Breyfogle
    I don’t care for his approach to six sigma but as a tool reference book I have not found any that were better.

    The Asian Productivity Organization’s (APO) Lean Six Sigma Institute has posted a free e-book about “Lean Six Sigma” (mostly Six Sigma, very little Lean actually):
    http://www.leansigmainstitute.com/downloads/APO_SixSigma.pdf
     
    It may help you regarding how to “position” and utilize various statistical tools throughout the phases of an improvement project.
     
    Best regards,
