BS ISO 13053-2:2011 Quantitative methodsin process improvement. Six Sigma.Tools and techniques

This standard describes the tools and techniques to be used at each phase of the DMAIC approach.

The tools and techniques, such as the Measure system analysis (MSA) or House of Quality for example, are illustrated by clear, easy to use factsheets.

These include;

• what the tool or technique involves
• why the tool or technique is used
• step by step instructions of what you need to do
• guidelines and references to further information

How will ISO 13053, part 2 help me?

Save time and avoid possible mistakes. Know exactly what tools or techniques are required at every stage of the DMAIC method, why you need to use them with step by step instructions of how this should be done.
