Looking at the various quality tools mentioned in the CMQ-OE body of knowledge (BoK), and adding the excellent index - table of contents in Nancy Tague's book "The Quality Toolbox 2nd Ed." (Quality Press H1224), I have compiled a spreadsheet that can be sorted to look at the various ways our tools can be used. I would appreciate any comments this group has on this. Not all of Tague's tools are addressed in the CMQ-OE BoK, and not all in the CMQ-OE are addressed in Tague's book.
This is good work, Doug. Is the suggestion that the CMQ/OE text should contain all the tools in Nancy's text? I believe her text is also part of the CMQ/OE preparation reference list. If I am reading the matrix correctly, your work also shows that the CMQ/OE does not now include some very basic LEAN tools that I would expect to have shown up in the last BoK update for CMQ/OE. If not, I hope they show up in the current survey responses.
