Notes

  1. 1.

    The tips are partly based on the results of S. Schindewolf’s unpublished Master’s thesis (2011) on Six Sigma programs in 78 German companies. Selected results of this thesis were published by Leyendecker et al. (2011). The tips are also based on new, unpublished results, based on the data collected by Schindewolf.
