    6Sigma pros:
    Have any small companies had results using 6Sigma?  I can find a lot of results on the GEs, TIs, and Honeywells or the world, but what about the little guys.  I am looking for project dollars compared to % of sales on a few companies.  Does anyone know where I can find it?

    Frank, in November I attended a Six Sigma conference in Munich, where a German medium-sized manufuacturer for car components presented their “Six Sigma initiative” I felt they are doing pretty well with Six Sigma. If you are interested in details, I suggest to tell me your e-mail address. I will then send you the contact details of the speaker.

    I have worked as the company Black Belt for 1 1/2 years for a small job shop supplying product for GE. the first year I completed 4 projects with great results. Being a small company in my mind doesn’t stop having sucess in your projects. One project was in our paint process where we were sucessful in saving the company aprox $100,000.00 for the year in rework and materials costs. Another project was in the assembly area where we captured a savings at aprox. $50,000.00.I think your projects can be sucessful with a good champion and the support of the employees of the company. The most important aspect I find in doing this is give the credit to those who have helped in some manner of reconition. “do not take all the credit but give it away your rewards will be seen in a larger return when you do” after all the company will know it is your project when you show them the bottom line in monetary savings .
