Six Sigma is a highly disciplined process that helps us focus on developing and delivering near- perfect products and service. The central idea behind Six Sigma is that if you can measure howmany "defects" you have in a process, you can systematically figure out how to eliminate themand get as close to "zero defects" as possible. To achieve Six Sigma Quality, a process must produce no more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. An "opportunity" is defined as achance for nonconformance, or not meeting the required specifications. This means we need to be nearly flawless in executing our key processes.
