    Hi All
    I was just wondering if anyone would be able to help me. I am trying to compare and contrast QS 9000 to Six Sigma and I was hoping for some feedback off people who have knowledge of either of the two, I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks a million to anyone who responds

    Claire,
    I’m a BB (In training), just completing my first project. I am also studying Quality Management this year. Does your question relate to study? If so, I’d be interested to share some emails on the subject

    There was an excellent article in Quality Progress in some last years issue dealing with similarities in QS9000 Six Sigma and CQE.

    Hi Claire,
    I am currently acting as Quality Systems Engineer, and also as SSBB in the automotive industry, based in the UK.  I have uncomfortably close knowledge of QS, and reasonable (you never stop learning) SS knowledge.  We are also planning to migrate to TS16949.
    If you would like help/assistance I would be pleased to provide as far as possible.

    QS9000 emphasizes on what have to be done to get good quality.
    You choose your way to be there.
    Six Sigma emphasizes on how to get good quality.
    Six Sigma tell you the way you should go to be there.
    Hope this helps

    QS 9000 refers to quality system requirement guidelines. As such it just points the way to sustaining a quality product.
    Six Sigma is a methodology for process improvement with specific tools for reduction in variation, add the Lean tool set and methodology and you have a way to both increase product or service flow and reducing variation in the process.
    Hope this helps.
