ce and adds to the bottom line. The end result: a huge competitive edge for the company in the market place. What makes Six Sigma work is well chosen training and a top down commitment that infiltrates through the organization.

Six Sigma is:

  • A Philosophy
    • Make fewer mistakes in all that we do
  • A Statistical Measurement:
    • Helps gauge adequacy of products, processes and services
  • A Metric:
    • Measurement system
  • A Business Strategy:
    • o Good quality reduces cost

Does Six Sigma Apply to us?

  • When there is an output ... there is a process
  • When there is a process ... there is a process variation
  • When there is a variation ... there is a Six Sigma opportunity

What does it do?

The pay offs from the Six Sigma initiative can be huge, enabling the company to achieve quantum leaps in Quality and competitiveness. At the strategic level, the goal of Six Sigma is to align the business objectives of an organization to its market place and deliver real improvements (and dollars) to the bottom line. At the operational level, six sigma’s goal is to move business product or service attributes within the zone of customer specifications and to dramatically shrink process variation- the causes of defects that negatively affect customers.

Why Six Sigma?

To achieve Six Sigma quality, a process must produce no more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities while a process operating at a four sigma level will have 6210 opportunities. An “opportunity” is defined as a chance for nonconformance, or not meeting the required specifications. This means we need to be nearly flawless in executing our key processes. Six Sigma is a vision we strive towards and a philosophy that is a part of our business culture.

Accounting for Quality

Uncontrolled variability in processes and products result in defects, causing rework and scrap, increased costs and delays, and ultimately, lack of capability to meet customer expectations.

Intense global competition, declining process and margins, and leaner organizations are making it even more difficult to be successful in a market place where customers expect and even demand speed, innovation, flexibility, and superior quality.

In most cases, the first thing one should start to measure-if you haven’t already-is the cost of poor quality (CPQ), that is the expenses due to quality problems, such as scrap and rework. ‘If you are not measuring scrap and rework, you should start, because chances are you have a real problem out there, and you can’t afford not to know where you stand.’ ‘Even if you say, ’our quality is good because we do not get complaints or returns,’ all that it tells you is that what goes out the door is good. It doesn’t tell you how much time you to spend making it good. It doesn’t tell you how much internal waste there is. If you want to be cost- competitive, you need to attack those issues.

Using CPQ and the four cost-of-quality categories namely prevention, appraisal, internal failure, and external failure costs can put you back in control of your quality system, by helping you shift your quality efforts upstream, where they will do you the most good.

Six Sigma and Cost of Poor Quality

Benefits of Six Sigma level performance are the direct result of intense focus on customer satisfaction combined with the relentless pursuit to eliminate variability in processes that cause defects, rework, scrap, and even more costly warranty. In most organizations, the cost of poor quality represents 30 – 40 % of sales. Six Sigma implements proven methodologies to identify and reduce these costs while reaching world-class quality levels by focusing on breakthrough performance.

Six Sigma differs from traditional performance improvement programs in its focus on input variables. While traditional methods depend on measuring outputs and establishing control plans to shield customers from organizational defects, Six Sigma approach demands that problems be addressed at the root level, eliminating the need for unnecessary and rework processes.

Six Sigma offers the potential to recover a large portion of this unnecessary waste thereby allowing the organization to meet and exceed the product performance and service expectations of its customers.

A “Six Sigma Organization” spends less than 1% of its sales on cost of poor quality while the average “Four Sigma Organization” spends as much as 25%. It is for this reason that this new and exciting business improvement revolution is receiving such strong endorsements from business analysts, governments and champions of industry alike.

Resource Requirement

The Green Belt training is computer-based where all the participants would require access to computers as far as possible. The prescribed software tool” Minitab” (Demo version) is downloaded by us during the training. Minitab is freely available at www.minitab.com (valid for 30 days).This program am sure will offer tremendous value to the participants.

The trained Green Belts will deliver the projects successfully and will put emphasis on making the Green Belts more self reliant.

Certification Process

As for the GB certificate, there is an assessment exam at the end of the three day training. Please find the process of awarding the certificate to the participants:

Discussions and presentations would be held during the training, the trainer would assess team participation and understanding. Final score for awarding the certification would be assessed on the basis of scores obtained in the class discussion and assessment at the end of three day GB training.
