Six Sigma Training

What is Six Sigma?

Six Sigma is a statistical measure of the performance of a process or product characteristic compared to a specification level. A Six Sigma level process would exhibit no more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Most company processes produce upwards of 6000 defects per million opportunities which for many is simply not good enough for today’s competitive environment where customer demands increase exponentially. Organizations fail to achieve Six Sigma level of performance will consequently endure very high costs due to poor quality. To achieve a Six Sigma level of performance, a systematic process based methodology and project framework must be employed while personnel at various levels within the organization must be developed to operate and lead the six sigma implementation program.
