How can Six Sigma be applied in an organization that designs, manufactures, assembles and presure tests oil drilling equipment?


You apply Six Sigma in the same way as any other business enterprise.  In general, this means you must implement Six Sigma on a project-by-project basis.  Generically speaking, Y=f(X) and the only thing that changes from situation-to-situation is the variable labels, transfer function, rate of replication, cost-per-transaction,  and faces of the players.  Other than that,  everything else is “made from the mold,” so to speak.
