Information Transformation Perspective on Experimental Design in Six Sigma

Summary: [This abstract is based on the author's abstract.]

A practical perspective is presented on the relationship between data collection method and the type of information derived from a statistically designed experiment. The rationale behind this approach is summarized in two rules governing the handling of empirical information. This explanation of the methodology of orthogonal experiments clarifies statistical procedures and simplifies the use of experimental design in Six Sigma, where an understanding of the necessity of specific procedures is as important as good planning and timely completion of projects.
