    Could anybody explain me how you calculate your Six Sigma performance of your company? I discussed this point with some so-called 5 or 6 Sigma companies, but I feel there are a lot of different ways (in some cases relly easy ways to come to the statement ” Now I’m on a Sigma level of 5 …”

    Hans,
    There have been a couple of good threads on this in the past – I think if you were to use the ‘Search’ facility you will be able to track them down fairly easily – I think the titles were something like “Six Sigma Average”, or “Company Six Sigma Value”.
    From memory I think opinions were divided on whether a company average was really that useful a figure  . . . . . . .

    A common misuse of the term Six Sigma is when it is appliedto a company. A sigma value is a process measure.
    Saying a company is a “blank” sigma avows the individuals lack of knowledge of the six sigma philosophy.  That is unless the company has only one process.
    A better term would be to utilze the FPY or RTY value when considering all the processes that make up a company.

    The concept of Six Sigma is a performance target that applies to a single critical to quality characteristic not to the total product nor to the company.
    In the SS approach you have the Six Sigma Breakthrough Strategy to include the company and the consumer.
    Both concept SS and SSBS are complementary to gain the 3.4 dpmo company-wide

    Thank you James and the others for comments.
    I was looking for articles in the past, but couldn’t find anything.
    Could you help me?
