    hi !
    several reasons
    – the six sigma project was not provided with support (that can be in any form, be it management support, infra, money or people) and hence the solutions proposed and implemented were not the same or were not implemented in the manner expected to be
    – controls established were weak. this reason i would say is critical. either controls are not taken looked into by the operator, process owners, special causes ignored which effect the capability, any change in environment when shows on the control chart is not looked into etc
    – innovation and mistake proofing not done – most of the six sigma projects especially in service industry also suffer from non usage of innovation and mistake proofing. since most of the processes are carried out by people than by machines, sustaining of solutions become difficult.
    – people leaving and lack of knowledge management.

    Non- availability of right data at right time for measure and analysis phase could be one factor……..
