    Robby,
    For an experienced quality professional who knows how to analyze a problem before jumping of the bridge to solve it, six sigma is probably a pain in the @$$. There are no new tools to six sigma that have not been employed by quality professionals for many years.
    The flip side of that coin is, just like there are six sigma practioners who do not properly apply six sigma, there are quality professionals that do not properly apply the available tools to accurately analyze a problem and jump of the bridge with a corrective/preventive action plan that merely makes the problem worse.
    Six sigma provides a structured process for determining the causes of a problem and a structured method for implementing corrective/preventive action. 
    Experienced quality professionals know when the structured method is needed for very complicated problems, but in grest measure do not necessarily need that structure for more simple problems.
    For the group of quality professionals who do know know where the structured approach should be applied, six sigma provides the structure to help make them successful.
    Yes.  In the context of the correct and judicious application of six sigma, I believe six sigma is effective and does not overly complicate the solution of quality issues.
    Regards,
    Jim Shelor

    The tragic “Fake Gary Alert”
    Member

    With FGA we have another example of a trashy figure who doesn’t even know how to get his insults across in an intelligible fashion. This puts FGA even below the level of the kind of high school drop outs who can’t master the kind of basic utterances that are needed to be “accepted” into the absolutely lowest social strata of modern urban society.

    I’m  confused  :are  you  a  new  version  of  me?
    I  appreciate  your “idiotic”  opinion.I  believe  that  you  are  the  most intelligent “trashy figure”.So  please  proceed forward  with  your nonsense as  I  enjoy  reading  such silly opinions  from time  to  time.

    Great question.
    I have worked with 6s for about 10 years and now work as a consultant in the area of quality with dozens of companies. My personal opinion is that 6s can do as much or more harm than good if the organization is not prepared culturally for the paradigm shift 6s requires. I happen to believe that 95% of problems can be solved with Ishikawa’s 7 basic problem solving tools. They don’t require a huge investment in black/green belt training and, therefore, can be implemented without the inevitable political issues that arise from huge outlays in training dollars.I have seen it time and again where Six Sigma just becomes another program that is snickered at when the boss isn’t around. For true continuous improvment, the whole organization needs to understand the process: to Joe on the floor he doesn’t know or care about Box Cox Transformations and Anderson Darling. Keep it simple and talk dollars!
