´╗┐This second edition has been updated and revised to reflect the most recent Six Sigma techniques, and to match 2007 version of the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt Body of Knowledge (BOK).

While the primary audience for this work is the individual preparing to sit for the Six Sigma Black Belt certification examination, a secondary audience for the handbook is the quality and Six Sigma professional who would like a relevant Six Sigma reference book. With this audience in mind, the authors have greatly expanded the appendices section to include:

  • The 2001 Body of Knowledge, so that readers can compare changes and perhaps offer recommendations to future bodies of knowledge
  • Statistical tables completely redeveloped using a combination of Microsoft Excel and Minitab 15
  • A table for control constants expanded to now include virtually all control constants
  • Tables for both cumulative and non-cumulative forms of the most useful distributions, including binomial, Poisson, and normal
  • Additional alpha values in tables
  • An expanded glossary, with more terms relating to lean
  • A second glossary of the most common Japanese terms used by quality and Six Sigma professionals
  • The enclosed CD contains supplementary problems covering each chapter and a simulated exam that has problems distributed among chapters according to the scheme published in the Body of Knowledge.

    Also available worldwide from the following e-book retailers: Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Google Play.
