    dear brian,
    i am civil engg. , done my m.b.a. and six sigma black belt certified.
    what i foud as of now is,
    very low interest by managment because of its fragmanted structre.
    lots of black money is involved. the profit margin is quite high and managment generaaly is not looking for operation excellence.
    i would seriously appreciate if you can send e your views and and career guidance.
    thanks and regards,
    sanjay

    You must be having business process applicable for Insurance. Identify critical processes and apply Six Sigma which basically is to first find out variation in quality and then reduce the variation.

    Hi Onur Serin:
    I´ll like to know if you got some information about the aplications of six sigma in construction industry, beacause I’m doing the same investigation. I’ll like to know if you have some examples or past experiences about someone who has applied Six Sigma in the construction industry. I´ve rea some books of six Sigma but I don´t have enogh idea about how to applied in the construction industry.

    Six Sigma is applicable everywhere. In Building / Construction Industries-DOE is used for optimization of Concrete mix (Water ,Cement,Sand,Small stones and Additives ) for getting Desired strength ,Reduction in per square feet building cost,Improvement in construction  Cycle time based on earlier past data. Selling buildings to customers wrt Profit ,Customer satisfaction and Cycle time.
    Procurement of construction material wrt Cost and Cycle time. these are some of the areas.
    With regards

    I’ll like to explain some of my experiences about an investigation I did, I haven’t finished and maybe I wouldn’t do it. I found only 2 examples about how can be applied six sigma in construction industry, one for improving Internal finishings and another for reducing time cicles of work. But i think thath these examples are not practical. I have a lot of ideas about why six sigma can’t be applied in the construction industry without the compromise of the heads of a company, and a serious company. The problems six sigma implementation in the construction industry have are many. I can give a large explanation about this and why I think that. For example in construction our work time cicles are very long. Our works are projects (they are unique products) so we can’t standarize many process. I have many ideas but I can’t write all of then here. But if you want to change some ideas you can write me to my e-mail: [email protected]

    I designed and taught a Black Belt and a Champion course for a home construction firm and its subcontractors, and coached the projects. I have colleagues who consult in both six sigma and lean for construction. Both methods are highly applicable.Lean will simplify the work flow, reduce delays, and trim costs. Six sigma will help understand why errors and defects occur, and eliminate costly and time consuming rework. Both drive down cycle times and costs.
