    We are considering using DPMO for our internal auditing process. Question: Would we use total checklist items verses nonconformance’s found? Does DPMO fit with auditing or not?

    DPMO is only meaningful if you’ve clearly defined defects and opportunities for them to occur. You can get numbers from any checklist but the numbers will be crap if you haven’t done this. Very often checklists are what people think should happen according to the process but don’t consider that the process might be defective.

    Comment on previous post: DPMO and sigma level are just ratios. If you have numbers for x and y you can compute them but they’re meaningless unless x and y are accurate and meaningful. DPMO for your checklist is just a way to evaluate compliance with the checklist. It says nothing about the underlying things you want to measure unless you’ve made damned sure that your checklist covers them, and only them.
