Digital ---- Prime Implicant

Is there any method to find the prime implicants without using the tabular method (Quine-McCluskey method) . As an example the prime implicant for the function F(w,x,y,z) = Σ( 1, 4,6,7,8,9,10,11,15 ) are 6 in numbers i.e. x'y'z , w'xz ... given function 4 or 6 .... If it is 6 then Is there any method other than Tabular method to find prime implicants of the function...
