Pivotal Resources Launches Online Six Sigma Reference Tool

Published: Monday, June 28, 2004 - 22:00

A new reference guide promises to make implementing complicated business improvement projects significantly easier for DMAIC and Six Sigma team leaders.

Oaktree, an online reference guide developed by Pivotal Resources, offers users access to an extensive data repository containing more than 120 Six Sigma tools via a Web-based interface, allowing them to quickly identify topics and retrieve information relevant to their project needs.

“Oaktree is the perfect guide to assist project leaders and sponsors through the DMAIC process and keep them on the right path toward success,” says Pete Pande, president of Pivotal Resources. “Oaktree is another example of our commitment to provide innovative solutions to the process improvement field.”

The solution was developed to optimize the efforts of companies using Six Sigma and offers a wide range of features that enhance project management and teamwork. The interface uses “roadmaps” and step-by-step representations that allow users to assess where they are in the DMAIC process. Oaktree’s illustrations and templates provide users with examples, helping them to better understand their project. Tips, instructions and other critical information are available to move their project toward completion.

Licenses for Oaktree range from individual to groups of 500 or more. Short- and long-term subscriptions are available. For more information, go to www.pivotalresources.com.
