Six Sigma is focused on driving out variability and reducing waste in processes, by using

powerful statistical tools and techniques. Its basic premise is that product or process defects are

an undesirable expense and therefore consume potential profits. TQM proposes an incremental

process with a focus on quantifiable elimination of defects. This transformation can be

incremental as well as radical. The primary Six Sigma measure is defects parts per million in

products or processes.
