What is Six Sigma?
Six Sigma at many organizaons simply means a measure of quality that strivesfor near perfecon. Six Sigma is a set of pracces to systemacally improveprocesses by eliminang defects. A defect is deﬁned as failure of a product,process or service in meeng requirements of internal or external customers.Benchmark Six Sigma asserts:It is important to understand Six Sigma as a set of extra-ordinarytechniques that improves decision making in a wide variety of situaons.Six Sigma techniques are not rocket science and can be leant in adown-to-earth daily applicaon oriented language.This is accomplished through the use of two Six Sigma sub-methodologies:The Six Sigma DMAIC process (deﬁne, measure, analyze, improve, control) is animprovement system for exisng processes falling below speciﬁcaon andlooking for incremental improvement.The Six Sigma DMADV process (deﬁne, measure, analyze, design, verify) is animprovement system used to develop new processes or products at Six Sigmaquality levels. It can also be employed if a current process requires more than just incremental improvement.

Six Sigma diﬀers from tradional performance improvement programs in its focuson input variables. While tradional methods depend on measuring outputs andestablishing control plans to shield customers from organizaonal defects, a SixSigma program demands that problems be addressed at the root level,eliminang the need for unnecessary inspecon and rework processes.Also, while other programs menon philosophies, ideas, and requirements (e.g.ISO 9001 speciﬁes requirements) Six Sigma provides a structured roadmap onhow to bring beneﬁts.Six Sigma as a strategic tool is customer focused and is ulmately designed toincrease proﬁts through enhanced customer sasfacon.
