Six Sigma



Background

Six Sigma simply means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined methodology for eliminating defects (driving towards six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process.

To achieve Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. A Six Sigma defect is defined as anything outside customer specifications.

Lean Six Sigma and Lean Flow initiatives go by many names, including Lean Enterprise, Lean Sigma, and Lean Service. These concepts are a natural complement to Six Sigma and can be applied to every type of business and process. The common thread is to identify and eliminate sources of waste and activities that do not add value, in order to create flow with maximum productivity, capacity and throughput. Six Sigma therefore naturally forms an important part of the CLM Training portfolio.
