    Agree fully with you.Once I have suggested a new concept:BQA (Best Quality Approach),just to mix the best suitable elements  from the different  quality concepts (TQM,Kaizen,Six-Sigma,TPS,Lean…ETC) and to apply as per the required condition and status,it looks  “naive” but I see the future of quality in such approach.  kind regards

    Also I should emphasize and focus on the process mapping (flowchart),and to put a general “charter”(similar to the SS Charter), indicating all the necessary steps to achieve the targets.I would rather use the DMAIIC Principle instead of the PDCA (PDSA).Please let me know your professional opinions in regards to those 3 points,their  “vital”role in implementing this  (global) approach.I will publish the “wrapping-up” results (article) in this site ,so let me read your contribution and your “Brainwriting”.Let us trigger (Luanch) the new Debate.   Thank you and regards.          Mman

    There is a good linkage between  ISO 9001/2000 and Six Sigma.Just to brief shortly the following common factors:Customer Focus,Leadership,Involvement  of people,Process Approach,System Approach  to Management and  Continuous Improvement.Furthermore if  you consider the mechanism of the SS Program,youn can observe the common approach with  the the ISO:Results–oriented,Leaders’s Accountability,Data-Driven,Intensive Training, Recognition of  Achievement and Success Celebration.Also if  you consider  the similarity between the SS’s DMAIC Approach  and the   the ISO strong focus  on measurement,analysis and  improvement,you can recognize the “complementary” between the two systems.Just my humble opinion,kind regards.     MMAN

    May be the  three areas of market research that are necessary for planning SS in small industries are:
    *Measuring current  customer satisfaction
    **Determining  customer needs for product development
    ***Analyzing customer retention and loyalty.
       You have  to ask some questions  for each factor ,finally:clearly,the more an organization understands its customer the greater chance that this small business has  for successful  future,just my humble opinion,regards

    Yes Matt I agree with you.I found an excellent  book  (published in 1987) ,it is called  Statistical Methods for quality improvement..A t the last chapter it was talking about “the  QC story”,it is very similar (may be even identical ) to the Six-Sigma.May  be SS is a “re-birth” of this already known Japanese Methodology.  kind regards,MMAN

    Hi Praveen
    Excellent.Hope to be able to present an actual (simple) example to make it practical.What do you mean by  “combinatioma play “?
    Thirdly how to measure efforts and the speed of thoughts in practice?
    I believe one important factor is missing (or may be it is missing),as it is the catalyst of any effort,namely the  Commitment,there is also a mathematical equation for it (Commitment=Time+Persistance+Enthusiasm) I will add “Loyalty” to that ,I have went through  Innovative “change experience “and found “Loyalty and Enthusiasm”as the most important factors for success.
       Anyhow I admire your theory and wish  you success and like to add one more thing (which is also Vital  for success) it is “Uniqueness”,to feel that you are “unique” with high level of self-confedence .
         Just my humble opinion,good luck.               MMAN

    Thank You Mike for your response & accuracy.This figure may apply to USA or to the Western Worlds,What about the rest of the world.Even worse:what about inefficient consultants:just yeasterday I heard a HR specialist talking non-sense to more than 20 attendants,persistant in repeating “boring’ clutter.Forgetting all the faults  and mistakes of the CEOs.How about all the vague consultants (world-wide),Some of  those who utilize their PHD for show-off,pretending they knew things they never heard before(it is not a PHD-envy ,believe me).  I think it is time to organize this “profession”and to build some basic (respectful)ethics and requirement (as for engineers and doctors of medicine) and to filter out all those  pretenders.Do you agree ?Just my opinion.  thanks and regards.  MMAN

    Hi Andy:I like your way of thinking as Taguchi maintains that  a product does not start causing  losses  only  when  it is  out of specification,but  when there is  only deviation from  the target value..This leads to the important conclusion  that quality is most economically achieved by minimizing variance  rather than  by strict conformance  to specification,which  is similar to the SS  Concept.This  also provides  the basis  for  the Taguchi’s ideas for off-line  quality control.I think that  Taguchi concept is very identical  with the SS Concept:DFSS as it emphasizes on such  stages:system design, parameter design  and tolerance  design.What is your opinion?Regards

    First try to construct a  flow chart (process-mapping),looking for non-added value steps,try to eliminate them,then try  to build C&E Diagram,determining the vital few and activate a brainstorming or “brainwriting” based on that to detect the root causes or to find creative solutions,later you can go for pareto chart and so on,good luck.
