Six Sigma
Six Sigma at many organizations simply means ameasure of quality that strives for near perfection.Six Sigma is a disciplined,data-driven approachandmethodology for eliminating defects (drivingtowards six standard deviations between the meanand the nearest specification limit) in any process --from manufacturing to transactional and fromproduct to service.Thestatistical representationof Six Sigma describesquantitatively how a process is performing. Toachieve Six Sigma, a process must not producemore than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. ASix Sigma defect is defined as anything outside of customer secifications.
A Six Sigma opportunity is then the total quantity of chances for a defect. Process sigma can easily becalculated using aSix Sigma calculator .The fundamental objective of the Six Sigmamethodology is the implementation of ameasurement-based strategy that focuses onprocess improvement and variation reductionthrough the application of Six Sigma improvement projects. This isaccomplished through the use of two Six Sigma sub-methodologies: DMAIC and DMADV. TheSix Sigma DMAICprocess (define, measure, analyze,improve, control) is an improvement system for existing processes falling below specification andlooking for incremental improvement.
