Six Sigma definition, on-line education, exam preparation and certification, consulting assistance, and resources.

What is SIX SIGMA. Six Sigma is based upon work by Shewhart and Deming, further developed by Motorola in 1980's and made popular by Jack Welsh at GE in 1995. Six Sigma focus on improving quality of process by identification and removal of the cause of defects and reduction of variability. Six Sigma uses statistical methods and relies on use of trained Green Belts and Black belts who are trained internal and external experts. Six Sigma goals towards 99.99966% of the products manufactured to be statistically free of defects (3.4 defects per million).

Six Sigma follows Deming's Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle. Or DMAIC ("duh-may-ick") which has five phases.

  • Define problem, voice of customer, and project goals.
  • Measure key aspects of current process. Collect data.
  • Analyze data to understand and verify cause-effect relationships. Seek out root causes of defect.
  • Improve / optimize current process. Set up pilots.
  • Control future state. Make sure future state deviations are corrected before they result in defects.
  • Monitor.
  • Recognize (optional) at beginning. RMAIC

One Six Sigma tool used to identify the cause of defects is a Fishbone Diagram (FD) (AKA Ishikawa herringbone, cause-and-effect diagrams) created by Kaoru Ishikawa in the 1960s which help to identify the causes of an event.
