What is Six Sigma ?

Browsing thru this magazine & catch hold of the article " web exclusive article "online, this is the laymen version of what is the buzz about "Six Sigma" is all about. Years before, Kribs organised a meet for a discussion on CII (that day the biscuit was not so good and i dint get my share of Pepsi anyway...still remember kribs, collecting money on helmets ;-) )

I think, this article is a nice summary of what six sigma is all about.

" Six sigma has been defined as a strategy that identifies and eliminates causes of defects in work processes by focusing on their outcomes that are critical to customers. Six sigma also denotes a specific performance level. A six sigma process or transaction produces extremely few defects -- 3.45 defects per million opportunities (99.99965 per cent defect-free), for a process with a single-sided specification. I should mention six sigma is a journey and not a destination. Significant financial benefits from six sigma begin to accrue soon after implementation, although it could take many years to reach six sigma defect levels."
