Six Sigma DMAIC and DMADV concepts are very important concepts in quality management.

This is achieved by identifying sources of defects and minimizing variability in a business or manufacturing process.
With such basics it shouldn’t be hard to dig deeper into the science behind the whole issue. Thanks.

Or maybe 6 standard deviations between the upper and lower limits? Cause that is how it is written on the normal distribution map.

They sell newly developed parts programs to China, they closed down and move out of Canada they production (in branch I worked) to Mexico and I end up as unemployed with permanent health damage that unable -discriminate me -to find adequate job replacement and it happened to me close to end of my productive age before reaching retirement… So now you can see a bigger picture what Six Sigma and 5S is……

The 6 sigma computerized environment is a killer for any humane working conditions – but only because of management… To apply it correctly to humans, the manager ought to be a human too.
I would not recommend engineering as a career for my children. Unless they want to do innovative work (independent).

Companies use it to brow-beat and alienate their workforce. Used by people who have no leadership skills to demand excellence from coworkers and subordinates. Waste of time and money to organizations rather than empowering people to innovate and truly solve problems.

I overheard someone using the “5 whys”. He ended up sounding like a condescending overbearing helicopter parent before he got the third one out. Six Sigma is snake oil. This is your true 50k ft level explanation.

A lot of companies go through the motions of lean but are not necessarily more productive and efficient as a result.
Six Sigma is the micro-managers dream.

Humans, unlike computers, have a mind of their own. A system should work with people who can make rational decisions. I prefer Total Quality Management (managing the systems and those managing them).

If not used correctly, it is as useful as tits on a boar. Would you use a adjustable wrench to hammer a nail? A hammer to tighten a bolt?

Anyone that states that 6 Sigma is waste don’t understand how to use it properly.

In manufacturing today, it’s all about time & money. To eliminate waste is the game. Continuous improvement…what’s wrong with that?

Now through the miracle of jargon we have Six Sigma. “A rose by any other name…”. If a decent project manager had been hired in the first place you wouldn’t need this specialist. BTW I can’t spell but I can use spell check with out “Six Sigma” training.

I wonder why GE stock has done so poorly in relation to the rest of the market and peers?
