    Ramesh,
    You cannot reduce an opportunity. In a certain product the agrred opportunity is constant. You can reduce your DPMO by reducing your defect through your mistake proofing.

    Span is a measure of range, generally around some target like due date. In some cases it’s the highest value minus the lowest value, or it could be the 95th percentile value minus the 5th percentile value, or some such calculation. It can also be expressed as a ratio of the two numbers.
    For some customers, it doesn’t matter that you did something quickly, just that they received it when they expected to. In order to reduce variation around customer expectations, it is helpful to see how far off from the target you are on a continuous basis rather than how quickly you fulfilled the order.
    In addition to Patrick’s comments about the “evils” of early delivery, if “early” happens frequently enough, it becomes the target in the eyes of the customer.
