Other Tools and Methodologies
In this chapter, we describe other tools and methodologies related to the topic of the book. In this way, we provide for the reader a global view of the advanced possibilities of Six Sigma and R. These tools include failure mode, effects, and criticality analysis (FMECA), design for Six Sigma (DFSS), lean, Gantt charts, and some advanced R reporting issues.
