    I am wondering if we can trace it down to the first published successful Six Sigma project. Does anybody know?

    http://mpcps.com/MOT0.htmlIn 1985 through 1987 Mario Perez-Wilson acting as coordinator of Statistical Methods trained and implemented the Process Characterization methodology in the FMU-139 electronic bomb fuze program. The first organization where the M/PCpS Methodology was implemented. The success of the implementation increased yields of over Six Sigma performance levels to the program and total record sales of over $263,000,000.In 1988, this unit of the Tactical Electronics Division received the Quality Excellence Award from ASQC for outstanding achievement in the use and implementation of statistical tools.In 1990, the FMU Fuze Program won the Chief Executive Office Quality Award (CEO Award), Motorola’s highest award for quality performance.

    You think this was really the first? Where did Mario learn?

    Six Sigma was first launched on Jan 1, 1987. Before than various statistical methods, pre-control, dorian-shanin techniques, or DOE’s were used. My question is to find out first successful published case study. Mario’s work is more about improvement activities, and getting CEO award in 1990. Was it published in any magazine?
