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

semiconductor industry statistics  in processing loan applications, semiconductor manufacturers would produce many products that never have even a single defect throughout the product's entire lifecycle, and call centers would correctly transfer each and every call the first time and maintain this perfect performance over many decades. For nearly all processes, that would be indistinguishable from the already un-sellable concept of zero defects as a reasonable achievable goal.

The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers


What manufacturers must realize is that through efforts to comply with regulatory standards, they can make their manufacturing operations more competitive. Indeed, compliance is transforming the companies that have taken the time to re-architect the many processes used for managing suppliers, channel partners, resellers, and customers. For manufacturers that ignore compliance, on the other hand, the costs can be steep.

Manufacturers' strategies for compliance as it relates to these substances rest heavily on an enterprise-wide approach to data collection throughout the sourcing, supply chain, and traceability of production lots or in the case of semiconductors, foundry yields, throughout a global supply chain. There is also the critical need for showing component replacement at any point in the supply chain, production, Read More
