Dr. Nuran and John Fraser have produced a mini tour de force in explaining the complexities of Six Sigma in 46 succinct but informative pages. In simple to understand language the authors have succeeded in de-cluttering the expanse of Six Sigma terminology and methodology enabling rapid understanding of the key principles, functions and statistical analysis central to this important process improvement armoury of tools. Terminology and techniques are skilfully explained leaving the reader to consolidate that understanding using the many simplified examples scattered throughout the text. The statistical analysis is sensibly built up in stages, from types of data, to normality and on to hypothesis testing. Parametric and non-Parametric testing is covered both illustrated with worked-out examples. All in all this eBook is first rate, is worthy of hard-copy publication and should provide the novice or experienced with a suitable concise Six Sigma reference.

I found this book an easy to follow guide on the main topics of Six Sigma methodology and how to apply them in practice. No hard line statistics course here, just what you need to know (or refresh ...) to go "hands-on". Of course as always, prior practice or knowledge on statistics will help you go even further.

I really enjoyed reading this little Six Sigma ebook; it is a nice, easy to follow introduction to the topic of Six Sigma and process improvement. I've personally been involved with Six Sigma for over twenty years and I'm always looking for ways to introduce people to the subject. I think this ebook can help in that regard; it is easy to read, it covers the basics, yet provides enough details to challenge the reader. I also like the fact that there are some interesting examples applying various analysis techniques to professional soccer. This would be a good read for someone who wants to learn the basics about Six Sigma in a short amount of time. It's also a good reference if a company is wanting to introduce numerous employees to the concepts of process improvement. I recommend this ebook to anyone wanting to "test the Six Sigma waters".
