Question: When is Six Sigma not Six Sigma? Answer: When it's the Six Sigma Metric!!©

Six Sigma Quality is a popular approach to process improvement, particularly among technology driven companies such as Allied Signal, General Electric, Kodak and Texas Instruments. Its objective is to reduce output variability through process improvement, and/or to increase customer specification limits through design for producibility. I don't like the Six Sigma metric. As you'll see, it fails to pass many of the empirical tests for "good" metrics. In particular, it's neither simple to understand nor, in most applications, an effective proxy for customer satisfaction. And, its definition is ambiguous and therefore easily gamed because th

Combine this with the observation that complex processes tend to have long cycle times compared to the time it takes for unpredictable changes to occur in their environment and you re quickly led to the conclusion that many important processes can never achieve 6s performance unless they are dysfunctionally over-simplified. This is how chaos the Read More
