As a Six Sigma practitioner and mentor, I am often asked what Six Sigma tool to use to solve specific quality problems. The answer is, "It depends." After all, at last count there were over 100 various tools available for the Six Sigma professional to use (see Nancy R. Teague’s The Quality Toolbox, second edition). I have learned over the years, however, that the simplest tools often are not only the most appropriate, but also provide the biggest returns with their use. 99 times out of 100, the Six Sigma tool of choice is one of the seven basic quality tools.
