Six Sigma Summary

Hello! I found a very interesting article about Six Sigma. Hey! This is important for engineering. So, come and learn.

Six Sigma Summary

The goal of Six Sigma is to increase profits by eliminating variability, defects and waste that undermine customer loyalty.

Six Sigma is a methodology that provides businesses with the tools to improve the capability of their business processes. This increase in performance and decrease in process variation leads to defect reduction and vast improvement in profits, employee morale and quality of product.

In few words, a company or organization use the Six Sigme when they need a complete process: define, measure, analyze, design, and verify. That process is to get near perfection of an activity or product and eliminates defects.
