Over 100 Lean Six Sigma examples and/or exercises are provided in the book Integrated Enterprise Excellence Volume III and its Solutions Manual. This zip file provides the data sets for these examples and end-of-chapter IEE Vol. III exercises.
TOOLS AND METHODOLOGIES
The provided tools and methodologies include free 30,000-foot-level predictive performance reporting software add-in to Minitab statistical software, statistics tables such as the t-table, and Enterprise Improvement Plan (EIP) graphic. Included also are examples and exercise data sets that could be used in lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Green Belt, and Master Black Belt Training, These data sets are from examples and exercises in the book Integrated Enterprise Excellence Volume III, Improvement Project Execution: A Management and Black Belt Guide for Going Beyond Lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard.

This chart created January 2014 will give you a head start to comparing the options. Take a look at what Smarter Solutions offers in the course vs. other providers.
Most practitioners do not frequently use the statistics tables, such as the normal distribution and t distribution. You may not have used them since your last Lean Six Sigma or statistics class. Is the lack of use due to the availability? If you would like a digital copy of the statistics table that has no intellectual property or copyright restrictions, download it here. This is an Excel workbook file, with all the equations that are used. Load it onto your laptop or your mobile device for quick access.
As Smarter Solutions continues to refine the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) system, we tweak certain tools to improve their use. The Enterprise Improvement Plan (EIP) has been updated in order to better title the columns so that they are clear in their intent. We have also added a fifth column as we modified the fourth column. The fourth column has been defined as the improvement being targeted, with the fifth column being the specific project or task that is linked to the improvement. We think you will find this tool to be more useful and easier to explain to others.
A few Lean Six Sigma project-problem statements read: Avoid problem [blank] from ever happening again. We can apply the standard DMAIC process to this issue to provide improvement recommendations to the organization, but is this the most efficient path to take? The choice to execute a DMAIC project will take significant time and many of the steps are not very useful. In this webinar we will provide a sequence of Lean Six Sigma tool usage that will provide a very comprehensive and long standing risk mitigation effort that is more than just using an FMEA.
One of these enhanced Design for Six Sigma examples illustrates an approach for conducting product mean time between failures (MTBF) in development.
