    Thank you, Bob. It is scary to see so much emphasis on 6Sigma as a basis for making sound investment decisions. Also there is a lot of misinformation about the S&P 500, which is a group of 500 US companies that are chosen because they satisfy a strict set of requirements. Such requirements include having more that $4 billion in capitalization, and financial viability as measured by earnings.
    Lots of companies have been added to the S&P 500 because they are smartly run with good products, marketing and operational controls.
    I can understand why companies would implement 6Sigma as a way to improve quality control and increase efficiency in their operations, but at best it is only one criterion that I would consider before allocating my hard-earned money.
    It’s best to keep the chatter about investing to forums designed for that and concentrate here on the dynamics of 6Sigma.

    I thought it was Bank of America who won MBNA and they aren’t quite a SS company.

    Wait NASA is a Six Sigma company? lol Considering NASAs current rate they are at a Sigma Level (z) of slightly better than 2. That equates to about 130841 defects(deaths) per million Missions!! They have a long way to go lol. Just using the fact that 14 people have died in space over 107 shuttle mission. lol

    I happen to be looking for the same information and I know that there are automotive companies that have used the Six Sigma methodology.  I think that General Motors was the first, and since, Lear Corporation and Ford Motor Company have adopted this as well.

    I believe that the Caterpillar Company uses Six Sigma as well.  They have been since 2001 with success.

    Amanda,
    Were you doing a lot of thinking about this or did you just not notice you were responding to a 5 year old post?

    Three one-sigma companies board a train in Cleveland traveling southwest at 92 mph.  At the same time, six two-sigma companies board another train in Cincinnati traveling northeast on the same track at 34 mph.  Where will the two trains collide and what will be the result?
    A.  Detroit, one 15-sigma company
    B.  Columbus, one 9-sigma company
    C.  Columbus, 9 1.25-sigma companies
    D.  Delaware, one corporation having multiple divisions each performing barely over budget
    E.  Columbus, 9 original companies and one less railroad

    I’ve noticed most of you are very poor spellers and even worse writers. For all the hype surrounding Six Sigma, I’m not impressed. If most of you spoke they way you wrote, we’d be in a world of hurt.
    I think anyone has the right to question a system that is so hyper-focused on the problem and not the solution. It’s really easy to jump on board a ship because everyone else is doing it, but not so easy to think and act independently. Look at all the neat tools and articles you’ve all written…how about getting out of analysis paralysis and thinking on your own….move away from the computer, stop having so many meetings…summarize the situation, look at its history, and make a choice. Period.

    Big mistake.  As Dilbert points out, SS companies trail the S&P.

    As opposed to debaing in the forum, you time coud be spent actually which companies have implementd six Sigma methodologies.
    For instance you are on the sixsigma web page, one of if not the, leading source for Six Sigma information and products.
     
    Take some time to look at the companies that are advertised on here and then you will be able to grasp which companies are doing what.
    Then, depending on your industry, you know which companies are using the Six Sigma and Lean methodologies.
    And, Dupont happen to have Don Linsenmen as a Six Sigma Champion, and if they have someone as smart as him, i don’t think anybody is in a position to be ridiculing the company!!!

    The Quality Digest Magazine regularly publishes list of companies using Six Sigma, Vendors that provide e-learning, companies that specialize in gages, the list goes on and on. Every month the magizine picks a new category to slice and dice useful networking information into various topics. Check it out.

    I know I am a little :-) behind on this article, but I agree James.  It seemed like the article you are referencing is focused on Six Sigma always producing a six sigma process.  The bottome line is the defect rate or sigma level of a process is based on what the customer is willing to pay.  If they are ok with a 2 sigma process, then it is successful.  The article just emphasizes the lack of researh and understanding of what the methodology is all about.
