This book is a carefully developed integration of mathematical models that relate Six Sigma and reliability measures for the first time. Several case studies are used throughout the book to illustrate the application of the models discussed. The strength of Six Sigma is the way in which it structures the problem and the solution methodology to solve the problem. This is probably the only concept to attract the attention of almost all companies across the world irrespective of their business mission.

From the reviews: "Six Sigma is essentially a method of assessing and improving quality ... . This text basically describes a large number of reliability measures, and shows how they can be translated into Six Sigma measures. ... the book does a fine job of introducing reliability engineers or reliability theorists into the basics of the Six Sigma methodology." (Moshe Shaked, Zentrablatt MATH, Vol. 1096 (22), 2006) "Six Sigma is essentially a measure of process capability and allows less than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. ... The book is interspersed with several useful case studies from live examples, which make a good reading for a beginner in the subject. The book is recommended to all those who would like to see symbiosis between improved reliability design of a product and Six Sigma strategy for performance improvement." (Krishna B. Misra, International Journal of Performability Engineering, Vol. 4 (3), 2008)
