Lean Sigma Project Design
The purposes of this chapter are: (1) to describe six sigma strategy and (2) to propose opportunities for additional research and evolution of six sigma. Part I of this book describes several methods that can structure activities within a project. Part II focuses on design of experiment (DOE) methods that can be used inside six sigma projects. DOE methods are complicated to the extent that decision-making about them might seem roughly comparable to decision-making about an entire project.
